I agree with the Six Apart CEO - One person's lack of compassion does not equal another's comfort.
One person's lack of comprehension does not equal another's consent.
I agree with the Six Apart CEO
When he says he really screwed this one up

I am however really proud of myself for calling this one spot on. If you go check out my post of yesterday you will see that not only did I reasonably guess what happened, I also predicted how it would come out, and what exactly we could do to get things back on track ASAP.

I think Six Apart is an ass because a while ago his crusade was against breast feeding images. He deleted a bunch of users for having breastfeeding icons as their avatars. While I'd support banning pro-pedo sites and object to salacious nudity in icons since this is a community open to people under 18, I don't think breast feeding should fall into that category at all. Besides, when someone is breast feeding, they are feeding their child and their nipple is not visible, only some cleavage and a baby's head... objecting because the image *implies* a nipple is ridiculous... everyone has nipples, implied or not. So, anyway, that's my rant against the moral inquisition director known as Six Apart.

While I wholeheartedly agree with what you are saying, and will even point out that a tiny baby's mouth covers more nipple material than those little plastic wrappers most states requires exotic dancers to wear (because the site of a naked nipple would incite riots)

I also feel I must point out that in fairness to covered nipples everwhere, I don't know a strip club anywhere that allows their strippers to substitute their nipple wrappers with the mouths of their clientelle. It would be so much better for the environment if they did. Those wrappers are probably not biodegradable.

Oh, here's the reason. It appears the wrappers are clearly marked as containing all natural material and only to be removed by the consumer. It appears babies consume and stripper clientelle does not.

In all seriousness you have a good point though, and I feel that if there was ever a good time to make that point, it would be RIGHT NOW while SA is admitting overzealousness and poor judgment!

I don't know if you read this, but if you haven't been over to innocence_jihad, I suggest it. You may have to search around, but you will definitely find information on there about the fact that another online group and been bothing Livjeournal for months, and Livejournal's response (as has been well pointed out in the comments of the news post) was to say "talking about something illegal is not the same as doing it; these people are not voilating our TOS agreement".

Besides the fact that
1.) People were being told when they opened support tickets that they were deleted for legal reasons in response to interests.
2.) That jerk made a statement to CNet prior to the one on Livejournal, stating that it had nothing to do with legal reasons, but the fact that they didn't think it was right for the community they want to build.
3.) The news is completely the opposite of the two previously given reasons.

Just from looking at my friends list, people are now more pissed off being lied to than anything, which is where my problem is now coming from.

Not to mention that he has edited the post to basically tell everyone that is upset that they are being unreasonable.

Yeah, no thank Livejournal. You will be getting no more of money. Go to hell.
