I used a cut tag for the following for two reasons
1- I think all this panic is just silly so if you don't want to read critisizm don't click it.
2- I wish other people had used cut tags on this topic because all I can read on my friends page right now is "censorship angst" because like myself... everyone has an opinion.

Oh my gosh... all of the sudden I can't even read about friends intrests and what they did today/what they plan to do because all anyone can talk about is the censorship o_o
Nothing has been commented on by LJ reguarding the suspentions... my goodness everyone needs to chill the fuck out.
besides from what I have read the accounts were suspended not deleted so they probebly just suspended everything with the words "incest" "rape" or "pedofilia" in the title or intrests so they could stop being in trouble *right now* and are going to go through it and read the content and reinstate or delete as necessary. And even if that's not the case... pick your battles people... its INCEST and RAPE, are you really battling to keep these topic accepted? I mean I understand special case things like Survivors groups and the like... but seriously now.

Blame not the eljay... blame the users who scrolled past the terms of service agreement when they signed up and just clicked "okay!" without realizing that young people use this service too and the admins are trying to keep it kosher for the sake of getting sued and losing their jobs. Seriously... they don't want to go out of business any more than you want them to.

and as for the continuing censorship issue... i.e. the whole if they censor this now what will they censor next?!? Homosexuality?
Keep this in mind... Homosexuality is *not* a crime, Rape incest and Pedofelia *are*.

...now if eljay decides to indescriminately ban all things homosexual or not christian... that's a battle I would pick.

Sodomy is still illegal in 15 or so states... no non vaginal sex for you.

Yeah, was replying to the thread in general but wanted to come back and correct myself. I *think* what is being said is that all of the laws preventing oral and anal sex were brought down in 2003 -- with many others being repealed before then.

Now if it can be legal to sell adult novelties (dildos etc) in most states... Texas is particularly weird about it.

Anyway... censorship bad, six apart covering ass, they'll have a lot of hell to pay if the EFF gets involved.

I think the technical law in Wisconsin is that you have to be at least 2nd cousins or be over 46 years of age (not sure on the age exactly tho) and one of you has to be sterile/unable to have children.

I worked with a police officer in training once who was looking it up XD

Agreed... whats more is the consideration that Six Apart (the parent of LiveJournal) has to protect their content. In this day and age of RIAA and MPAA blinded and uneducated censorship, companies are being (sometimes improperly) held accountable for the trespasses of their users -- which is where the suspensions come in. It will be in SixApart's best interest to un-suspend the legitimate communities and accounts (one account, for ex, was a literary group that just happens to discuss literature depicting romance of underaged women -- which isn't illegal.) I wanna know who made them jump.

The unfortunate part is that LiveJournal is a private service. They can do and censor whatever they'd like and there are no laws at this time which say that corporations are required to protect free speech. However, the EFF may get involved if they pushed the wrong person in which case, we may even see that kind of precedent appear from this case... interesting times. I'm one to want to see where it goes.

Ha ha I liked the kind of "fuck you" that Six Apart slid in there to the WFI. They were like "all complaints must be investigated even an ignorant moron can be right sometimes"
