Okay, let’s put those new adult filters to some use.
No doubt the pansy-ass morons at LJ/6A’s community relations department are so terrified of getting an honest opinion, they’ve safely filtered their reading prefs to the max, so they’ll never see this.
I have no problem whatsoever putting an ‘Adult Concepts’ filter on my journal. I talk about adult things. I have two nieces, seven and eleven years old, who are not ready for some of the things I discuss in here. And, my sister would kill me dead if I were the ones to introduce them to the F-bomb. Fine. No problem there.
At no time and for no reason may LJ/6A make filtering decisions for me. They may present to me my options and let me choose. They may not decide for me that I shouldn’t see adult content. It’s not their job. It’s not their place.
Fuck you, LJ. You’ve long since made it a dead cert that I will never get a paid account here, because you’ve long since proven you can’t be trusted. Now you’re getting perilously close to me just saying screw all of it and moving permanently to WordPress or GreatestJournal or anywhere that doesn’t have a Dumbya-like ‘Free Speech Zone’ mentality of what public discourse is. What you did is not illegal, but it is both unethical and highly insulting.
If you haven’t yet, be sure to go to your settings page and uncensor your journal.
