Grrr, censorship.

I think this site probably explains it best:


This is very aggrevating to me, because if everyone gets rid of their 'interests' it severely limits the networking ability of Livejournal. I do agree that Livejournal does need to take a stronger stance on pedophilia complaints, but this is going far too far.

(I can't help but curse LJ going 'corporate' with Six Apart, it seems like everything's gotten worse.)

haha I'm game for that.

Going to get off my ass and archive my LJ when I get home... which I should be doing regularly anyway I guess ^^;;;

What part of the TOS does it violate?

Wow...guess I hadn't read these as thoroughly as I thought since the switchover.

"Upload, post or otherwise transmit any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive to another's privacy (up to, but not excluding any address, email, phone number, or any other contact information without the written consent of the owner of such information), hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable;"

This seems to be forbidding about 60% or more of stuff posted. I mean, obscene? By what definition? Merriam-Webster says "a : abhorrent to morality or virtue; specifically : designed to incite to lust or depravity b : containing or being language regarded as taboo in polite usage c : repulsive by reason of crass disregard of moral or ethical principles d : so excessive as to be offensive ". I may as well trash my journal now, then, along with a majority of other posters. And don't even get me started on the absurdity of "otherwise objectionable". Oy.

So I can't say fuck? That's obscene. And there are a lot of posts on LJ that are quite public about religion that I find "repulsive by reason of crass disregard of moral or ethical principles". Maybe I should go report them...
