According to C|Net, LiveJournal deleted around 500 journals and communities this week claiming that didn’t promote the kind of community LJ wants. Most of the journals/communities seem to involve pedophilia to some degree, at least to an outsider’s point-of-view. The screen names used to attribute quotes is entertaining in itself, but the most amusing part for me is the literary comparisons. “…fan-written fiction, frequently sexually explicit, about characters in the Harry Potter novels” is compared to classic works by authors such as James Joyce, William S Burroughs, and Shakespear.

To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to tap some goblin ass with my enchanted +1 charisma sword?
