Don't look now but we're in the news. Apparently, the mass deletion of fannish accounts was so newsworthy that SixApart didn't deign to order LJ to cook up a news post; they went straight to the media.

"Our decision here was not based on pure legal issues," countered Six Apart's Berkowitz. "It was based on what community we want to build and what we think is appropriate within that community and what's not. We have an awful broad range of discussions and topics and other things going on in LiveJournal, and we encourage other broad-ranging conversations on all sorts of topics. This was a specific case where we felt there was not a reason (for these journals to stay online)."

HOW ABOUT THOUSANDS OF ACTIVE MEMBERS WHO JUST WANTED TO READ FIC THEY LIKED? IS THAT NOT REASON ENOUGH FOR YOU, ASSHOLE?

Chanficcers, incest writers? They just don't want your business; plain and simple. I have a sinking feeling that all manner of porn is next, though the gay sort is probably going to go first. After all, them gay folks are hardly conducive to a "family-friendly environment", which, if you read carefully between the lines, is exactly what Six Apart is ultimately after.

LiveJournal, it's like Australia in a way.
