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.

Well, technically it wasn't a purge, since all data were kept stored at the LiveJournal's servers, just being unavailable. :)

Actually it wasn't completely undone. Still a lot of journals left suspended, but the "popular" ones got brought back immediately, so the raging hordes shut up.

This is a good sumup of all the links to various posts on the matter. :)

Several amateur pornographers were held accountable for writing stories about minors having sex and had the gall to throw a fantrum when they were called out out on pedophilic content.

Yes, and several legitimate and genuine rape survivors were held accountable for putting rape next to rape survivor in their interests. Educate yourself, idiot.

But maybe you're part of the 'we think that it was right for some rape survivors to get ditched without explanation as well!' camp, there's quite a few non-rape sympathetic people on the side of LiveJournal it seems. Well done. Wait for it... *applause*

As somebody who doesn't write about or have any interest in adolescent sex or rape, I was one who was angry at 6A's handling of this sensitive issue. I wouldn't call my comments a tantrum, I merely sought to point out a) the inconsistencies in the action and b) the basic clumsiness of it.

The problem, for me, was that it wasn't just the pornographers that got caught up in the deletion of journals, but the genuine discussion groups, the literary study groups and others. The action taken by 6A was seemingly based on the false premise that a fictional depiction of an illegality is illegal itself whether advocating that act or not. This is clearly ludicrous, we would have to ban almost every book ever written including The Bible, Shakespeare and Homer.
Furthermore 6A acted precipitously without any consultation and in direct breach of its own published Terms and Conditions.
When people queried this they were ignored, though the press were spoken too. The eventual statement was mealy-mouthed and patronising and lacked any sense that 6A actually realised what they had done wrong.
The enduring concern as a result of this, and earlier censorship acts by 6A such as the breastfeeding icon ban, is that our money will be taken and then the detached corporate mentality of 6A will bring in further restraints and reactionary policies thus losing LJ's welcome sense of community, openness and the ability to have debate such as this. I do not see a problem with people asking for reassurances before committing their finances. (Some people may do this in a way you may think clumsy, or as another put it 'wanktastic' but their commenst remain valid nevertheless.)

I didn't know what it was either. Now that I've read some of the links of what went on I think people need to pull their panties out of their asses and chill out. LJ was wrong, they admitted they were wrong, and fixed it. There are plenty of places that wouldn't have done so. It sounds like if people read the damn instructions for entering their interests and did it correctly they wouldn't have had a problem.

Nor would I stand up to defend a lot of the pedophillic fandom bullshit on this site. Two Harry Potter fanfics and I refused to read any ever again. It's disgusting. They should just take solace in the fact the Supreme Court is on their side and move on. It's a blogging site on the Internet, not your damn Federal Government.
