SixApart Censors LiveJournals by removing them

I caught wind that the folks at SixApart removed over 500 LiveJournals in an attempt to reduce the amount of adult oriented material on the network. I am personally pretty shocked that they actually went in an removed the journals.

In my opinion this now puts SixApart at great risk. I hope they consulted with their attorney on this, because now they are going to have to police all of the journals on a regular basis. If they do not anyone can hold them liable anytime questionable material is found, as through this mass removal action it is obvious that they are actively monitoring sites.  which could prove to be a real mess for them when they miss one, and someone is offended and sues.

SixApart says it removed the sites to protect children, it will be curious to see what the fall out on this will be. ZDNet
