. . . Actually, now that I've done some thinking with my head and not my heart, and Google-hunting, I think I've maybe figured out what the truth is that does use Occam's Razor, or KISS as I know it.
It is an outside influence on 6A's action, but it isn't a activist group or the advertisers, but another company vital to LJ's existence, their ISP.
Yes, LJ doesn't own their own servers, Internap does.
If articles of what happened in July with the blackout in San Fran that took out LJ are correct on that company's relationship with 6A, then it's simple to think that Internap is putting pressure on 6A to remove this content when it turns up in abuse reports. It's happened many times over to a friend of mine with his site where they ordered him to remove hentai of Cham Cham from some fighting game. If he didn't, they're pull the plug.
It's as simple as that.
I'm just waiting for an official answer from a letter I plan to send.
