No U
If I wasn't so invested in my fandoms over here, I'd go to Greatestjournal or Insanejournal for good. My respect for LJ has never been so low. I know a lot of people are saying this, but I was thinking about buying a paid account before all this crap. I wasn't going to make a post about this, but this has been bugging me since last night.

I really resent being told what I can and can't say in my own journal. I haven't looked at the lj biz post since last night because it takes too long for my browser to load, but I hope people have started to notice this little paragraph:

But content such as "Hitler killed millions of people, and someone should pick up where he left off" or "adults should be allowed to have sex with children" isn't permitted.

Which does look good at first glance. But even though I disagree with comments like these and would never make them, once LJ starts censoring people's statements, where does it end? People do have the right to make these statements, and people have the right to challenge the people making these statements. I disagree strongly against banning people from making them in the first place.

Yes, lol, srs bizness, unpopular opinion, it's only a online blog, etc. I'll shut up now.

Uh huh. Livejournal's new and imposing policies remind me of Umbridge.

I just finished it. Have you?

Ohhhh, I see :)

I... actually finished it a few days ago, I d/l'd it from the web :/ I like it more than I liked HBP. I think it could have done without the epilogue, but maybe JKR wrote it to stop people asking her to write a book about the trio's life after Hogwarts. :)
