I just posted this comment over at the Dreamwidth news board in response to their SOPA protest response.




One of the reasons I have a Dreamwidth account is because I trust you not to get in the way of what I have to say.

You just put that in doubt.

You wrote: While I won't say that we will never do that -- there certainly may come a time when it truly is the best way to protest -- we don't feel comfortable doing that right now.

I read: If we at Dreamwidth ever feel sufficiently upset about something, we just might deny our community members customers the right to publish their ideas. Today is not that day, but someday in the future, that's a possibility we'd consider.

I urge you, as strongly as I can, to walk that back. When you threaten me with the possibility of an arbitrary denial of service, I start thinking about going someplace else. And I really don't want to go anyplace else.
