I know that this post isn't full of yay and fanfic rec goodness, but I am seriously distressed with the direction that LJ is going in. I'm sure everyone in fandom has heard about Strikethrough'07 that happened in May, but I am worried about their even more heavy-handed behavior with suspensions and account deletions. [livejournal.com profile] ponderosa121 and [livejournal.com profile] elaboration have both been suspended on the 2nd and not allowed to post anymore to LJ because of "supposed" chan fanart they've done for [livejournal.com profile] pornish_pixies depicting "minors" in sexual situations. This persecution coupled with LJ's plans to add a Report Abuse button means that anyone can and will be suspended based on LJ's whims.

So this freaks me the hell out. I run a bunch of doujinshi communities and I don't want them to be suspended and me kicked off of LJ/prosecuted, because LJ decides that certain doujinshi are obscene. I feel obligated to put up disclaimers in my comms, because I don't want anyone's account to be suspended. So how the hell will I word this? I don't know. I have to think about it. I'm going to spam the dj comms that I'm changing things around so that everyone has to agree that they're eighteen or older or leave and that the characters in the doujinshi are at least eighteen even in flashbacks. Stupid LJ. God this sucks. And this doesn't even cover the fact that just reading about all this will most likely mean I'm going to have to leave LJ soon.

I'm stalking a bunch of the info journals about this, [livejournal.com profile] innocence_jihad, [livejournal.com profile] fandom_flies, and the Greatest journal following this, fandomtossed.
