well that's odd
My two cents: Yes it all sucks. Yes it is a giant witch hunt, when you really get down to it. Just consider the fact, though, that, as bzzinglikeneon said, we all agreed to the Terms of Service here. The TOS states that you will not use LJ to promote any illegal activity. Hell, she said it better than I could possibly paraphrase.

My point is, the way LJ is going about all of this is probably one of the dumbest conflict management moves I have ever seen in my life because hunting by interests does result in striking down the innocent as much as if not more than the guilty. As pointed out, even support groups are suffering because people aren't looking at the content of the communities and journals, they're just deleting them. But it's LJ's right to be paranoid, lovelies. This is their playground and they let us play. This is just a vigilante group lighting a bonfire under their ass where normally it's only individuals demanding their temporary attention with a spluttering match.

Anyway, Anita has a good list going up there for the commentary that's useful and makes sense. Last night, my friends and I cleaned out any interests on the journal we were most worried about. Best I can tell you is to do a sweep for anything vaguely questionable connected to any journals you don't want to lose. Protect yourself the best you can. Sit back. Relax. Let the fire burn itself out. Also, if you're at all worried and haven't done so already? Make sure you've got a back-up of anything and everything you've ever drawn or written and don't want to lose. I personally don't understand not keeping copies of your own work anyway but, hey, some people are not quite as compulsive about this sort of thing as I am.

So now that I've said my piece, it's back to your regularly scheduled f-locking and ignoring of the universe. I've got a trip to prepare for. Let's all try to be reasonable and admittedly fallible human beings around here, mmkay?

    God, no doubt. All I can do is hope that in retrospect, they'll see how poorly they handled this. I understand where they're coming from, but come ON. Be a little more professional about it.
    • It's all just a panic reaction, when I really look at it. I understand their perspective but it's hard to explain your reasoning to people and have them agree with what you're doing when you just act without seeming to have thought about it until people started noticing said action. With the uproar, my bet is that they're starting to notice their own lack of professionalism already, whether they admit it or not.
  • Um, Hi. I know this seems weird, but do you have any idea where I could find a Sid Vicious mood theme for LJ? I have a friend who's birthday is coming up and it'd make her year if I found her one.
  • Hp_Art Project

    Hi there, I've taken over the helm of this project and I'm trying to make sure everyone is still interested in doing their chapter assignment.

    You were assigned Book 1: Chapter 4 - The Keeper of the Keys

    If you are still interested in the project please let me know. We're looking at an art deadline aorund next June.

    If you are not interested, also please let me know, so I can open up your chapter assignment for others.

    Thanks!
