An Open Letter to fandom by [livejournal.com profile] ivyblossom

Quote:I suspect they didn't mean to rollover academic communities talking about Nabokov. I suspect they didn't mean to blast incest-survivor groups. But I'm pretty sure they had every intention of packing in communities like [livejournal.com profile] pornish_pixies if it would help their image.

So when they talk about the "kind of community" that they want to build, just remember: if you're in fandom writing stuff that might qualify for the communities that got axed, you're probably not their kind of community. Think about that before you give Livejournal any more of your money.

And an amusing take from [livejournal.com profile] annajaneclare.

LJ/SA apologise for the mess

We love our members of fandom and respect their role in our community. We made a mistake and now we are going to try to fix it. [..]

We have always been strong supporters of free speech and at the same time we believe deeply that children deserve special protections as well as the victims of violence and hate. We tried to implement a policy that walk that line and we did it poorly, we are all sorry. ... I hope you can forgive us and we can regain your trust.

It's a start.

I just saw this on [livejournal.com profile] akire_yta's journal and I think it's kind of cool. It's a community called Fandom Counts, which is basically just a head count of how many LJs are actually fandom related.

There are over 2500 people signed up so far, but there's a heck of a lot more of us than that. Go. Join.
