OK free speech is one thing, but...

Below is an answer to your support question regarding "Illegal Content: rapists_unite in rapists_unite" (


Dear LiveJournal user,

While we understand and appreciate the frustration you feel, please allow us to briefly explain our position in this matter. In order for us to take any action against this community, the content would need to be instructional material clearly designed to facilitate the promotion of illegal activities. In this case, the material most certainly qualifies as crass, tasteless, inappropriate, and, most certainly, expressing an utter disregard for the rights of others; however, the two entries contained in the community are not instructional in nature.

While the material is distasteful, we cannot take any action. The content falls within the realm of material protected by free speech. LiveJournal attempts to preserve as much free speech as possible for its users, as long as that speech does not cross the line into invading another's privacy, violating local or federal law, or directly inciting violence or hatred against any specific, identifiable group regardless of whether that group is explicitly named in our Terms of Service. The content of the community in question does not meet that criteria at this time.

We do appreciate your concern in this matter and we apologize that we are unable to assist you further. Please do feel free to contact us should you have any additional questions or concerns.



LiveJournal Abuse Team much for taking care of that com.

The Phoenix
