Live Journal to make its site less attractive to sex pests seems to have backfired as the administrators purge the site of hundreds of sex-themed discussion groups.

Users are incandescent with rage after they found literary critiques and fan-written fiction about Harry Potter purged in an effort to protect children. Live Journal deleted around 500 journals this week in hopes of better “protecting children” following requests by activist groups.

While some journals were clearly dodgy the online journal burners seem to have demanded the removal of science fiction, fantasy or user-written “fandom” stories.
