Free speech = SRS BZNS. As does signing your posts.
Posts about LJ/6A's interesting take on what kind of material they will tolerate have been taken off the main wankcomms because they are no longer funny. But, to my mind, when people start tossing the terms "freedom of speech" around in relation to LJ communities, that's always hilarious.
In the fandomlounge, an enterprising JFer reports the latest target of LJ/6A deleteobots: the proanorexia community. velvetwhip (aka Gabrielle, as she keeps reminding us) kicks the high drama off with a take on Paster Niemoller: if we don't defend deliberate starvation then we can't defend our beloved Snarrypr0nz. airwyn strikes back:
Giving people (especially minors) step-by-step instructions on how to kill themselves is not generally covered under free speech..
But! Just when you thought this was going to get shifted to 6a_cornfield, the wank totally jumps the tracks, and we have a flashback to the glorydays of Kittenmommy. tez gets it; puipui gets it. And then purplefeen comes valiantly to the aid of velvetwhip. In response to her distaste for the famous 4chan meme "Y HALO THAR", a different meme is heard throughout the land - "LURK MOAR". Except that she very rarely frequents the site, so no can do on the lurking. Also, she's not here to make friends!!!
Meanwhile, shannon370 doesn't like the way that the signing-posts issue has distracted us all from the srs bzns of FREE SPEECH. puipui replies: do you get the point of this community at all?!?
BONUS!: back in the original topic, someone links the most revolting piece of "thinspiration" EVAR. And - joy! - someone apart from me remembers the "proscurvy" comm. (ETA link.)
