Mass Deletions

I'm not sure what to think about this mass deletion of journals. It scares me. I feel as if our safe little world of fandom was terrorized. I feel like we have been victimized, terrorized, censored, and everything else.

SixApart has always been an awesome company to me simply for the fact that they let its users create their world, but now it's as if a silent big brother has come along and ripped up the pages of our secret journals. Our innermost thoughts and dreams and stories deleted in the blink of an eye because of a group.

Livejournal has always been here for the sole purpose of the user. And then comes the advertisers. And then comes the deletion of questionable content. What's next? Modding every single journal?

I have always loved livejournal because I always assumed that it was the ONE place that was solid and permanent for the infinte space of fandom. Now I'm scared that anything I could do could be cause for deletion.

As members of livejournal, and members of fandom we need to stand up and say no. We are the customers here. We are the ones that fuel this great machine and if sixapart is going to treat us like this then they are making a huge mistake.

Granted I want to wait and hear what sixapart says on this, but currently this has made me angry and terrified. I don't want my journal deleted and I think there is something horribly wrong with the fact that I am this afraid.

We've made it to the news, and when I joined fandom_counts there were around 4500 members, now in under 8 hours there are already 13500 members. That says something.

We are standing up and counting and if we need to relocate, I believe we'll relocate. If we have to protest, we protest, I'm not sure what's to come, but this is not cool, and that needs to become clear to sixapart.

Comments

because of a group.

From what I understand, this "group" is three people. Three right-wing religious nutjob, redneck mafia and proud of it, white supremacist creeps. And Six Apart cowed to them. It's disgusting. Tell everyone to keep talking about it. SA is looking stupider by the minute and the only thing more worrsiome to them at this point than the three wackos is the bad press they're getting right now.
