I was curious about where most of our traffic goes, so I did some stats. This is for the last three or four days (it varies depending on the log files) across our cluster. Note that this only includes things that have hit the webservers. It does not count things that Varnish cached or were static files.

As expected, the main site (which hosts userpics too) is on top by a lot. Also, I expected the meme journals to be high, but I kind of expected them to top [community profile] scans_daily. Apparently not! Well, good on you all for being our most popular destination. :)

Nobody is going to do this stuff you're hypothesizing- there's no "limits to push" or any "subjective rule". This has 0% to do with the Strikethrough and bringing it up shows me that you're really not understanding my point. The Strikethrough was an overzealous and hasty rush to preserve a glossy image of wholesomeness, according to a group who made completely false claims about LJ's content. LJ didn't use discretion, it just deleted things at random.

Why are you making this into a moral debate? If you see someone being beaten in the street, you don't tell yourself ten reasons why that has to be allowed or that it's not up to you because you're not an "arbiter", you just stop them.

I'm only talking about one specific thing, which is right there, staring you in the face SAYING it is promoting negativity. That is its intention, that's what it was made for. It is a Hate Meme made to spread hatred about other users. If you were to ban that account right now, it's not going to summon some great roiling serpent of indignant protest. It's you saying that DW is not going to allow the site to be used for that specific reason.

I wouldn't push for you to understand if it wasn't something that really needs to be stopped. It's had a very poisonous and adverse effect on so many people in roleplay, and even tends to extend far beyond that, as I said, into very personal territory. People know that they can get away with saying whatever they want on these things. I'm not asking you to police it all the time. But if someone sends you a message pointing out that a new one has sprung up, and you shut it down, it sends a good message toward people who are trying to use your site for something so disgustingly unnecessary. Allowing it sends no message either way; it only tells them that they can keep this up as long as they want and you won't tell them off about it.

Again, this is not a "slippery slope" or moral/social politics. It's something promoting hatred, right there! It's spelling it out for you! There is nothing vague about the intentions behind it. It is exactly what it says on the tin, and I am telling you this as a concerned user who has seen the cancerous effects it had on people over on LJ.
