To Who It May Concern/Anyone That Still Fucking Cares About This Stupid Idiotic Drama-Whoring Shit:

I will not be leaving Livejournal. This is not because I am a strong person, or making a huge sacrifice of my ideals for the sake of liberty, justice and some stranger's right to post buttsex to public entries. I am staying because for the most (read: 99%) part, Livejournal has been good to me for three years, and despite their abhorable customer service record as of late, I feel that they are in the right on this case. This is not to say I am an apologist, this is to say that this is not the battle it's made out to be, nor is it one that I feel that I need to take the flag for.

Furthermore, I do not believe the root problem here is Six Apart. I was with everyone else that was afraid when a corporation bought out Brad Fitzpatrick, that it was going to become a corporate cesspool of incompetence. I think SA have done well to stay the fuck out of the way. No, I think this problem is based around LJ Abuse, and the incompetent, unpaid morons that run that show. Fact: when you bring in a bunch of dramawhores, don't pay them, and then give them power, with barely anything on their CV showing they can do this job, other than something like Peer Mediation in high school, you're going to run into incompetance at best, and agendas at worst. To me, this does seem like an agenda, but one with SERIOUS legal reprecussions should it be ignored and picked apart by the wrong people. There are more legal reprecussions at play here than, say, a community that promotes anorexia (though that's abhorable). My personal opinion is that everything brought up - shota, loli, Harry Potter, anorexia, you name it - is disgusting, or I personally dislike it for various reasons. I believe a person should be able to post anything as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else (including the forementioned HP shota). However, if LJ is going to clean this shit up, they're going to clean this shit up, and there's not much for you to say about it except a demand for monies paid to be returned (which, BTW, there is nothing in the TOS saying they can do that; your fault, not theirs). For all we know, this could be the first step of a grand purging of all of this shit, and the shota fags were the first to go. Who knows? No, everyone wants to freak out because that's in style. As for LJ Abuse, I have faith in someone reigning those idiots in, so I won't write this off yet.

And as for burr86, the last time I checked, it wasn't always his job to fill everyone with rainbow cumshots. He said something off-colour? Look at my fucking posts! I don't care who he works for or doing what; I don't care if he apologizes. Even if he apologizes, it would be for nothing but show; to do it "just because that's what you do" is ignorant, and does nothing more than let the emotards go "we won!". Is that what everyone wants?

So in conclusion, this is not some call to justice because two celler-dwellers decided to post teeny fiction porn and were too stupid to put it behind a fucking LJ Cut. Furthermore, most of my friends are here. I do not want anything to do with MySpace or Facebook. And also furthermore, I want little to do with Greatest Journal, Journalfen, or any other LJ knockoff; they're not only not as good, nor have I dropped over $1,000 over the years into them, but guess what; they have the same exact TOS! For anyone that's moved on to these other sites, you can find my articles at http://www.superbusnet.com (whenever I get around to updating) and http://www.hotcupofrant.com. I will not post anything at these other services, because I think you're being a fucking wanker, and I don't follow drama; don't worry, you won't really be missed. You might be able to read my own entries should I ever piss off LJA enough for them to get rid of me, but that's not likely, every time I've taken those idiots on, I've won.

No love,
Bus

PS: This sounds like a good time to welcome nailbat to the friends list. XD

I'm aware of the context, but might I ask what, in specific, caused you to respond to this in the context you did?

A lot of my LJ friends are doing the same thing, but making it sound like sticking with Livejournal is some major decision that took weeks of introspection. One in particular is about to leave to protect her right to... I dunno, post HP porn or something.

Naturally, I think the whole thing is foolish, so what better way to address the issue and make people look foolish by mocking them? ^_^

No argument.

I never really thought it was a big deal. Cartoon kiddie porn *MIGHT* be illegal depending upon whether the Supreme Court has changed their mind any since Bush outlawed it after they said it was legal the first time... so why would a corporate entity allow it to be posted publicly on their product?

Just saying.

Now, the big deal is that some freaks are going through, just doing random searches, and going "Yeah!? Well, this pro-anorexia community is allowed! YOU FASCIST FUCKS!", despite the fact that anorexia is just hurting yourself, and isn't kinda-sorta-illegal. And "HEY! This community about some fundamentalist Christian sect which promotes child discipline through baby beating, THAT'S ALLOWED! LIVEJOURNAL HATES FANDOM!!!!!"

This is basically the issue that emofags won't let die.

I'd be more inclined to believe that LJ is, frankly, too busy to unleash the banhammer on each and every thing that exists on their site.

Notwithstanding the fact that, unless I am mistaken, had these lolifags sat down and put their shit as FList only, they wouldn't be having these problems in the first place.

Just saying.

It wasn't "kiddie." For the Fred and George one, they looked to be at *least* 17. That's not little kid. That's practically grown adult right there.

And the age they have to be is 18.

I'm a paid user. I ain't leavin', and, since I keep my hands clean, I most likely would never have to leave, anyway. I agree that the fandom half of the equation is making far too much noise (again) over this.
