We have been contacted by the New York Attorney General's office with a list of registered sex offenders as part of their e-STOP initiative. Based on this data, we've suspended 186 accounts; we feel that it is important to remove these individuals from LiveJournal to help ensure the safety of our users.

This was only applied to registered sex offenders in the state of New York because they are currently the only state which has contacted us with this information and request. If other states or countries are able to provide us with similar data which can be used to remove potentially dangerous people from the site, we will take similar action.
