LiveJournal, and the "Warriors for Innocence&#

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 7 years ago

Censorship

An anonymous reader writes "A group/person calling themselves "Warriors for Innocence" went poking around Livejournal users' interests lists, ostensibly looking for keywords that would point to unsavory content unsuitable for children, and specifically looking for potential pedophiles.

Based on the keywords and account names submitted, LJ over-reached and yanked dozens of accounts regardless of context,including child abuse survivor communities,fan-fiction blogs written in the p.o.v. of villians, and a community for discussing "Lolita" by Nabokov. Users who inquired to date have gotten predictably boilerplate & lawyerly responses about TOS violations.

Summary, and pointers to users more directly affected, here:
