Since many of the members here have been RPing for a long time, and probably know a lot more than me, I thought I'd post here with a question about Livejournal's Terms of Service.

A character in a game I'm in recently had his account deleted for violating the LJ TOS. There was no warning at all, and now all past posts and comments are completely gone. The reasons were "It has been brought to our attention that your LiveJournal account exists solely to impersonate and harass another user." The game is a celebrity RP game, but all the journals, as well as the community, have disclaimers in the userinfo stating that this is just a game and is completely fictional. We haven't been harassing anyone, ever, at all.

I was wondering if this has happened to anyone before, and if so, were you able to reverse the decision? We have a lot of active members in our game and I would hate for someone else to be deleted next.

Thank you for your help.

I think the key sentence here is Such conduct is in violation of LiveJournal's Terms of Service as such we must take action when these journals are reported to us. They tolerate us as long as we're not brought to their attention.

Which is why we're now 100% friendslocked. I guess ignorance is bliss for LJ, they don't want to know we're doing "creepy" things with their service.
