Open Letter to LJ/SixApart: http://bubble-blunder.livejournal.com/80818.html

:: sighs::

LJ is not doing a good job.

It's also impossible to do a good job. There's no way they're going to be able to satisfy everyone. They know that somewhere down the road, someone with a _lot_ of legal clout is going to be able to hit them with a lawsuit for something, and there's no way for them to prevent that, so they're going to try to be as vague as possible, so they're covered.

It's a pity they can't just move Sealand, where they could avoid getting sued for all this crap.

In short, if people have not yet heard, LiveJournal went and suspended around 500 journals after a certain group (Warriors for Innocence) reported them.

Panic spread, people were quite upset.

And two days later, we have an apology on the LJ news journal. Along with, what apparently is, the max number of comments: 5003

I'm surprised at the unwillingness for people to start forgiving LJ... the first page of comments are all angry, "Why the fuck did it take so long? You told someone else first! Rawr, rawr, rawr!" and nitpicking at wording in the post. Jeeze, people... They made a mistake, at least they fessed up to it in two days, as opposed to however months it was for Sony to get around to responding to their rootkit issue. Or Apple just not really responding to their hardware problems...

I have more to say (notably on the censorship issue), but it'll have to wait until later, when I get off work.
