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.

From the faq on the new purchase:
Will my personal information remain in the USA? Yes. LiveJournal, Inc. is an American company based in California and is subject to the laws of the state of California, USA. All relevant state and federal regulations will apply.

This means that LJ will need to, as soon as possible, update the "hate speech" part to match that of California law and include all eight categories listed under 422.6 of the California Penal Code. In that way it will be in compliance with the law.

This isn't something that "needs reviewing" under some sort of casual look-over by employees in the 100 days goal thing. Not even close. This is something to fix right now.

I am astonished that LJ thinks that listing only race, ethics, and religion as being off limits is somehow sufficient. Don't you people have lawyers conversant in California state and U.S. federal law to advise you?
