LiveJournal deletes scans_daily

While the chain of events is not all together clear, it seems Livejournal deleted the entire community of scans_daily after one, possibly two, complaints from an intellectual property owner.

Best write up is at Christoper Bird's website, who was banninated by LJ for posting a detailed review of Deathly Hallows a couple of days before its publication date. Ruining the book for everyone!

Why this is made of fail: LJ deleted suspended the entire comm, although there was a complaint about only one entry on an issue of The X Factor. On the other hand, if I was an unpaid volunteer, I wouldn't put too much time into investigating shit either. Total destruction is always Livejournal's default response to abuse complaints because they won't pay people to perform customer service.

Edit: the mods of scans_daily created a comm at IJ, [info]scans_daily, during the events of strikethrough '07. It's alive and well here (and no doubt in other locations) since LJ killed it. A mod posted information here:
