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.

Re: my guess about the hate speech description

I concurr that this is a decent possibility, but as it compounds ongoing issues it is, at minimum, rude and merits an apology to go with an immediate correction. More nefariously, it implies bigotry, a disregard for the law and an implication of just who is and isn't welcome here, no matter what rachel says.

Re: my guess about the hate speech description

I agree.

Having met a few staffish people, and chatted at length with marta, I decided that there is, as they claim, no homophobia on staff or in the volunteer APT team--that there is no anti-gay agenda there.

However, there is an anti-gay agenda influencing a lot of American business decisions... and staff & the APT are both affected by that. There's a lot of anti-gay sentiment in corporate advertising.

And if LJ/SUP wants its users to believe it's not catering to those interests, it needs to make its policies a great deal more transparent, and indicate which ones are entirely derived from laws (no matter how much or little they explain those laws) and which ones are LJ's own policies, which it would be enforcing even if no laws supported them.
