Dear LJ Staff

Recently you posted this to ljbiz:

"Illegal and Harmful Content Policy Clarifications" http://community.livejournal.com/lj_biz/241884.html

I have a number of questions relating to it, but the maximum number of comments has been reached. Hence, I am emailing you and requesting a response from you by this means.

My questions are: )

I look forward to your response.

Looks like I was justified in my 'not giving LJ any of my money' policy.

I'll continue to post and read here for some time, but I'll be moving my attention to Greatest Journal (I'm flamewarrior there, too - friends only journal, but just friend me and I'll friend you back).

I won't be getting an Insane Journal account, because I find their mockery of mental illness distasteful.

Not advertising, but stock.

As most of my interests are ship pairings, it's difficult for me to say whether I 'support' them or not. It's all rather nonsensical. I know they own the service, but just where do 6A get off thinking their definition of 'interest' should be privileged over the definition used by hundreds of thousands of LJ users - you know, the one that you can actually find in a dictionary?

Read the user info, click join, and pimp.

I don't have much hope that anyone at 6A will even read it, let alone take any notice, but still...

Barak, thank you for finally making a full comment, here on LJ.

I haven't had time to read through all the comments to your post (and I don't envy you - or your employees - having to do so), so I don't know if this point has already been made, but I just wanted to ask:

Didn't anyone think of checking WfI's credentials before acting on their complaints? They are two people, vigilantes, who impersonate children to 'catch' paedophiles on the Internet, and then instead of reporting them to the police, they tell them that they've been found out so that they can disappear.

Which is effectively what pulling paedophile-run communities and journals has done - given the child-abusers fair warning so they can disappear.

Next time, please, please don't just listen to your lawyers; check the content of sites about which you receive complaints and report the ones that really are dangerous to children to the police, without giving child abusers a heads-up that they've been busted beforehand.

Oh yes, and leave us fans in peace.

Thus making liars of the volunteers in the LJ Abuse team.

Full story from CNet (except I don't think they mention the survivor group(s?) that got deleted).

finally official comment on LJ from Barak Berkowitz. Too little, too late?

Just been on a friending frenzy over at Greatest Journal.

I'm not abandoning this journal by any means, but, you know, just in case...
