I agree it's silly of LJ to crack-down on those icons, esp considering there are much more offensive ones out there. I'm not bothered by breastfeeding anyway. Some people are, and I guess it's their right to be offended. But a dead body wrapped in plastic, or a gun pointing at a baby (saw that one today) stays, and breastfeeding icons go?
But I think this form of protest won't get anywhere with anything. "Temporary" deletion? Gimme a break. People are just having a temper tantrum. It's easy for them to do it, they don't "really" have to give up anything. They'll all take their journals back in two days. Will this protest make a difference?
