"Our decision here was not based on pure legal issues," countered Six Apart's Berkowitz. "It was based on what community we want to build and what we think is appropriate within that community and what's not. We have an awful broad range of discussions and topics and other things going on in LiveJournal, and we encourage other broad-ranging conversations on all sorts of topics. This was a specific case where we felt there was not a reason (for these journals to stay online)."

Berkowitz said the company would "obviously apologize" to anyone whose journal was deleted in error but added: "That's going to be a very small minority of the sites. I would be shocked if it's more than a dozen."

What he is saying is: these journals are not illegal, but we don't care, we don't want them on lj. We're taking away the welcome mat, fandom. It doesn't matter what you have in your interests, or what you have in your profile, or what you post: if we don't think it's appropriate, it's out. We didn't do this accidentally, and we aren't going to apologize.
