Hallo! Glad to see someone's organizing something! I'm with the group who think it's not long enough, but personally I'll just make a point of avoiding LJ for the whole weekend. I'll just have to sew or somethings; Gods know I'm behind in it.

The only thing I have an issue with is number 4, and this is purely semantics. I think that using keywords like homophobia, racism, etc give them too much wriggle room. It's ghastly easy for them to say, "Oh, but we're trying to prevent it" or to claim that it's not bigotry, it's content maintainence. Instead, how about "censorship" in general without it being clearly defined in an easy-to-access place. The issue spreads well beyond homophobia, though that's where it's settling now. (For example, using this they can still censor depression and fanfiction.)

Just a thought.
