Welcome to lj_policy!

We're glad you're here. This community will be used to gather your opinions about social and community policy.

We understand that there is a lot to absorb and process right now with the creation of LiveJournal, Inc. Since this is a transition for all of us, we want to initiate a dialogue with you, the users. We feel it is very important to hear your concerns before we release any changes to current policies, and we want to start this process right away.

As a starting point, we don't want to just guess what's important to you; we want to hear about it directly from you. Please take a moment to answer the questions below:

1) What is your greatest concern about LiveJournal's current policies?

2) Regarding your primary concern, are you aware of a site that handles that issue in a way that you like?

This is just a starting point to get your initial ideas. We know you have a lot more where these come from, and in the coming days and weeks we will make sure you have a chance to voice your opinions. We look forward to your comments.

Rachel, I get that you're doing your best, but what I'm trying to say, and quite frankly, have been saying perfectly clearly is that the users have no reason to believe you when your hate speech policy excludes gender, sexual orientation and gender presentation. Are you planning to change that? And if not, why?

Obviously, I'm interested in these discussions, since I'm having them with you in the very community you suggest I join (and already have).

Additionally, I didn't raise issues about child porn (a boogey man that barely exists, but should be dealt with with swift and draconian measures when discovered -- of course, so far, LJ has repeatedly demonstrated an inability to grok the legal definition of "child porn" which is another ongoing problem) or self-harm (although yeah, the pro-ana communities are yet ANOTHER problem). I addressed issues of artistic freedom that are relevant to me as a creative professional. And you ignored them. AGAIN.
