#bantown, LiveJournal, and LJ Abuse
In spite of the media coverage, from WashingtonPost.com to Slashdot to InfoWorld, LiveJournal avoided telling users anywhere on the site that they had been successfully hacked.
Why did Bantown do this?
"In order for the account takeovers to end, Bantown demands that Denise Paolucci post on the front page LiveJournal news that LJ has been pwned by Bantown."
LJ employee Denise Paolucci's chief responsibility at LiveJournal is to head their abuse department, rife with unprofessional behavior.
You may not think that hacking is a good way to respond to LJ abuse's abuses, but maybe if they ever gave straight answers to straight questions they wouldn't make these guys so angry.
