@aquariusbutch so it ends up being appropriated from the original context and thrown around in places it doesn't belong

take it down, and not always politely. I was on livejournal at the time, and there was one community for meta discussion and that was about it. Then a bunch of us went and created another community where fic was allowed in locked posts. From there it snowballed.

@postpostpostr There are multiple threads. The roots come out of 80s and 90s academia, then you had active scenes on Something Awful and Livejournal in the 00s that developed the cultural dynamics and memes, then that stuff recombined on Twitter and accelerated after the crash of 2008.

@ScepticalAussie @NotDevinsMom This is very common, for example, I remember seeing on LiveJournal a post by a beloved Roman Catholic friend saying she had just voted for Barack Obama and should Catholics do that, because of the ******** issue? She did not know. I did not say anything, but it was revealing. 😳

It was bought out by Russian interests and even now is very popular with the Russian people. It's US popularity faded as people became dumber. But... here's the thing. There was a flap a few years ago... Livejournal 'cracked down' on LGBTQ cheerleading (somehow.)...

@darkfetishhydra tagging doesn't fix that. the fanfics used to groom me were tagged plenty well on livejournal. i knew what it was when i got exposed to it, but i was exposed to it by an adult, and other adults made it, and other adults liked it, so i thought it was fine.
