Okay, now I'm just PISSED . . .

The mass deletions on LiveJournal haven't really affected me, 'cos I'm not here for the porn, but I've been following the fandom_wank report and ended up reading pages upon pages of angry comments on the latest LJ News post.

That's where I first came across this.

Yes, folks, LJ has yet to actually release a statement to its own users, but is willing to talk to the press and airily dismiss the deleted journals as things that "we felt there was not a reason" to have around.

I'll be kind. I understand they're under a lot of pressure. But if they continue on this course for our Brave New LiveJournal, where content can be dictated by right-wing nutjobs, I will seriously be reconsidering my paid account.

I can live on three icons. I did for ages.

You don't have to delete. Just downgrade to Basic (NOT Plus--they don't deserve the ad revenue). You won't have as many icons or snazzy layouts, but you'll still have your posts and your friendslist.

I'm giving them a week. If things don't show any hope of improvement by then, I'm switching off automatic renewal and letting my paid account lapse when it runs out.

There do, however, seem to be faint signs that the LJ people are catching on that maybe this was Not A Very Good Idea. So we shall see.
