+ - LiveJournal deleting "illegal" accounts

Submitted by

tirerim writes "A group calling itself the Warriors For Innocence complained to LiveJournal that many journals and communities listed certain illegal interests that might encourage pedophilia. As a result, the company has apparently been deleting such accounts, no questions asked. Victims so far reportedly include several fanfiction communities, a discussion group for the book Lolita, journals of RPG characters, and, most disturbingly, some journals of survivors of child abuse."

Optimization hinders evolution.
