Well, there's a very blurry line between 'this is a thing I use' and 'this is a thing I approve of', so if you think the LJ T&Cs and the way it was handled were So Horrific then getting away from the toxic and not normalising it as 'a thing nice people like Jack use' is arguable.

That makes sense. *shrug* That's what I've defaulted to doing, but I'm not sure where I *should* put the line.

This confused me completely until I realised you were talking about appearance rather than reality :-) In my head, 'use' and 'approve of' are so different that it's hard to imagine getting them muddled up, and there are any number of reasons why you might not approve of a thing but find it necessary to use it anyway (or, indeed, approve of a thing so much that you'd like to use it, and feel sad that you keep failing to find good occasions to do so).

But of course they do look a lot more similar from outside the head of the person doing the using/approving/both/neither, and it looks as if that was what you really meant.

(Hello, by the way! I am still reading on both LJ and DW at the moment. I'm pondering turning off my crossposts to LJ, but since my current rate of actually posting anything at all is of the order of a handful of posts a year, I feel as if it's not as urgent a decision for me as it has been for other people. I don't expect that I'll stop reading LJ until I feel as if it's not adding any value over DW – but then, at the current rate of migration, that could actually happen.)
