woot! faith restored!

Thank you for contacting us about this matter. We became aware of an issue which involved the most popular interests list over this past weekend. The list has been restored to the proper format today.

We apologize, and this will not happen again. It was never the intention to insult anyone or to make a judgment on the content of these interests.


hurray! :D thanks so much to everyone who sent them a note. I checked it and it's true. ;-) Still waiting for explanation, but a response is good.

Yes, I got the same response. Poor Marta, for having to have to deal with the angry notes... I sent one too.

I'm glad we got enough visibility to have that fixed but my faith is LJ is not restored. To me it just looks like calm befre the next storm. Sorry for the negativity.

well, I'm not adverse to a bunch of issues if they lead to some kind of positive permanent change like LJ going to a new company or getting bought back or something. I have total faith in LJ itself, just not necessarily in the owners.

I just think it's going to affect everything if the LJ owners won't understand that even though LJ is technically theirs to do with as they please it really isn't, but belongs to us blogg-artists (XP) instead. I'm tired of all these fuck-ups and even though they have the right to put adds everywhere if they like I don't want to support that. I paid to support the add free feature. I feel conned.

I do hope that it gets re-sold again, but Six Apart is still a part of the busines here, I think. :/ I've read from somewhere that they still do something with this place... they own Type Pad but I don't what that is like. I only know that it was (among?) the first really popular blog-things.

I hope that someone who understands LJ a little better would buy it but I doubt that'll happen since its current worth must be a lot more than what one single person could ever afford to pay, and the companies are all the same, always only after profit, never minding what it is that they own. :/

These current owners have kept quiet now. No News posts, nothing. I don't think they're selling (though I'm hoping for it) but rather that they're waiting for people calm down and doing whatever they want in peace and quiet in the meanwhile. They're not even trying to talk because they know it would only cause more wawes.

I'm sorry to dump all this on you, but these are my thoughts right now. I'm not happy to lose my LJ friends, you included, but I seriously don't know what will happen next and I don't know if I want to be here to see it. I'm sure it's something we LJ users are against, and it will happen quietly and we have to find out about it through the grapevine.

I don't think there's going to be a whole lot of dialogue anymore. The new owners have decided not to talk at all. I feel like I'm on enemy territory here. X___x

yay. i was just signing onto livejournal to tell you i got a response too.

cool! ;-)

YAY! it looks like our voices were heard about this issue. I'm still waiting for an explanation. I'm very doubtful they can give an explanation that will satisfy me when it comes to the censoring of queer interests :-/ but at least they are back.
I AM still very bothered about the axing of free accounts. As well as finding it unethical to spring this out of nowhere on the users that have their homes on the site and being outraged at the ridiculous way they presented it, I also think that was a very stupid business move.
So, my faith is not entirely restored. But since the homophobia has been taken back, I am a lot more comfortable.

Thanks for updating about this ♥

I feel like it's SUP's fault and if things have to get worse until we get a new 'president' of LJ, I'm just going to cling tight to the railing and hope that the ship manages to stay afloat until the storm passes (and I believe it will). I have total faith in LJ itself, just not necessarily in SUP.

i got the same thing! it'd be nice if they explained what the issue was, but at least it's back to normal!
belenen ══╣strong╠══
yeah, I agree on both counts! ;-)

I'm sorry to see you unfriend me. :-( Is there a reason? barney9651@yahoo.com

nothing bad, no reflection on you -- I'm just feeling a little out of my depth with my flist and so I was trimming some of the newer additions that I hadn't built a connection with. I've never had such a large flist before -- I have kept it at about 70 for years.

I do think you're very interesting and a really awesome person, just trying to keep the list small enough that I have energy for all the connections. You're welcome to keep me friended and if I feel like expanding again or we develop a connection through comments then I would add you again. Whatever you would like, I wish you all the best!
