Sheesh!!! I can't believe how long it's been since I posted. I am on my Friends page every day - sometimes more than once - but I seem to let so much time go by before I say two words myself. I've always been afraid of putting my own thoughts and ideas out for everyone to see. Have to start using this as a place to let my thoughts run away with me.

There has been so much out there recently regarding censorship and what is going on here. I agree with many of you that this is a community of like minded people who are all interested in the same things. Only those of us here should worry about what goes in our journals. They are for us to see. It may have to be that we all Friends-lock our journals so that not everything is public to everyone. I'd hate to think that it would come to that.

I guess we do have to be aware that there are unscrupulous people who would use journals in the wrong way. Those definitely should be censored. And, perhaps using characters definitely underage in compromising ways may be offensive to many. But, then, they don't have to go there and read it. Pedophiles are definitely predators who need to be stopped and if we think that someone is using LJ in that way, maybe we should be aware of the dangers there. However, most of us are just crazy about the people we read and write about and think of them in loving ways. What is the harm in that?

I'm interested in all the discussions going on and would love to hear people's thoughts. My feeling is that we are all adults - I think - and who is to tell us what we can and cannot read or write. Who decides? If you don't like it, don't read it. We should all make the choices for ourselves.

In case you all leave here, I've opened up a GreatestJournal so I don't lose all of you and your wonderful writing.

One more thing - I feel like such a techno idiot. Can someone tell me how to post a userpic and where do you get them? You all have such lovely pictures with your journals and mine always seems pretty "blah!" with nothing there, but I haven't figured it out. If anyone can give me step by step instructions , I'd love to add a picture - but you have to really guide me through it! Anyone?
