I think it's a reasonable complaint. Since 6A took over LJ have acted in an increasingly 'corporate' manner, they don't seem to be connecting with and understanding their user base as much as they used to.

Well, of course you won't miss me. You're not on my Friends list.

No. The phrase was also picked up by online media sites as a shorthand to reference the events in that time period. Slang can be annoying, but it does characterize events in fewer words.

'wanktastic'? Ah the irony of attacking the use of a neologism with a neologism.

Strikethrough '07 is a widely accepted name amongst various media (not exclusive to the blogosphere) for this event, whereas wanktastic is just an insult of 5 year old proportions.

If you disagree with the post, fine, but try to do it in a grown up and reasoned manner, that way people might actually care about what you say.

Hahahahha...oh my God, get a life. Strikethrough 2007. Just the fact that people are wanking about it cracks me up. It's not the Holocaust, bbs. It's just blogging.

Wow, it's Godwin's Law this early in the Comments thread!

If bloggers are discussing current events as serious as the (one, particular) Holocaust, they might need to be doing so where censorhips rules allow them to do so.

As a correction to what perlandria said: it actually was not a purge, it was a suspension of about five hundred accounts, which was undone in about a week. You may wish to take a look at the latest news posts to know something more.

I wasn't all swept up in it, but I admit it was handled badly enough that I wouldn't lock into LJ now. Which makes me sad, because I would have normally been excited about this.

I'll still be getting my yearly accounts, but permanency is more than I can sign on for until we have better assurances that things will not be so botched in the future.

I'm not leaving, but I'm not promising to stay either.
