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. :)

Re: still a purge, we are into semantics

And I meant that 'purge' refers to 'permanent deletion' (in line with LiveJournal's FAQs), which is not the case here.

No need to argue, I think. :)

we are into semantics

Funny, but the fantards weren't into semantics when the word "pedophile" was being thrown around... :)

Re: fantard with that icon and username

I'm sorry, but I don't write stories about minors having sex with each other with the intention of titillating people who take sexual gratification from depictions of child sex.

What do we call those again?

Oh, right... Pedophiles. :)

Sorry, dear. Fail.

Nice try though. You get a pretty A for the effort...in spite of the fifth grade punctuation skills.

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.

Right. It was mostly undone, not completely. Undoing it completely would brought back some journals which really violated TOS, I suppose.

Actually, a lot of those were brought back. A lot that didn't violate anything are still suspended.

Actually, APT decides what violates TOS, not users.

Actually, as far as I can tell from looking at the caches of still-suspended vs. restored users and the users' communications with 6A, their criterion for whether it violated TOS was solely how much fuss people were making about them.

Since they won't actually tell us what their new TOS interpretation is, we can only go by their actions.
