Disagree If You Wish

I’m with Warriors For Innocence on this one.

Taken from Warren Ellis.

The thing is, in general I do not trust individuals or groups who say that they are the only things that stand “between evil and the innocent” or some such slogan. But child pornography, child abuse, pedaphilia, and the like are some of those subjects that have a bit of a knee-jerk response with me.

Do I think that LJ went too far and possibly deleted some innocent sites? Yeah, it’s possible. It is not as if I have been seeking out internet predators online, trying to root them out. I have no personal experience with the sites LJ deleted, but if they only deleted things by interests and if support/survivor group sites (aka Lolita sites) would also have those interests … it seems obvious that some well-meaning sites probably got the axe.

Still, I think that WFI has their collective heart in the right place.

Edit: And now LJ has started deleting accounts based solely upon interests? OK. They have definitely gone too far. I still agree with the sentiment of WFI, but somewhere this has gotten out of hand.
