Also, if you have time, it wouldn't hurt to run by the news page http://news.livejournal.com/
and give them some encouragement to offset some of the drama.
There's a lot of whining, complaining and boycotting LJ because of their recent action to suspend some journals and communities that may be outside of LJ policy in promoting pedophilia, murder, abuse, etc. There have been some journals/communities suspended that maybe didn't deserve to be. But LJ has been very apologetic and is working very hard to correct any problems. I know I would be bothered if this affected my use of the journal, but at the same time, I am very thankful that LiveJournal isn't willing to promote any kind of mayhem. I'm glad they're trying to do something about this problem. They're taking a lot of flak and criticism about being the "thought police" etc. Today I'm going to renew my extra user pics and buy time on all my accounts. I may even buy some of you something. Pass on the good will if you can, but if you can't here's a way to show your support for LJ.
