Censor deez.  
Regarding the boycott, strike, whatever the hell you want to call it, I'm not participating, obviously. However, I did take a small step in regards to the reported censorship of the Interests search feature, where "adult content" interests are apparently no longer searchable.

To my interests, I have added three items:

  • Sex

  • Bondage

  • Anything people censor

This represents the entirety of my protest placard. Thank you.
Current Mood: rousing of rabble

For every person bitching about this whole thing who also does not have a paid account and never has had one*, who has said that they will take their content and go home and then oh then won't WE be sorry?

Show me.

If a person who decries this move has not ever had a paid account or donated or done anything like that, even receiving paid account time as a gift (not coincidentally the only way you know someone values your content enough to consider it worth paying for), and claims that LJ would be poorer without their content, does not make good on the threat to go away, then ... well, I probably wasn't listening to that person, anyway, to be quite honest. That person should, right away, right now, delete his or her LJ account and go elsewhere. Show me that we're so much worse off without that precious content. Come back in a year and ask me if I ever noticed the lack.

* Those who have previously had paid accounts and let them lapse because they did not want to support the business model are doing exactly what they ought: voting with their dollars. I have no problem with that; this is a person who pulled his or her own weight on the server/bandwidth equation and has decided not to contribute to/support the company any longer.
