Did you know that LJ has removed the searchability of some user interests?

Does it bother you that they did this without making any kind of announcement?

Does it bother you that they did it at all?

What do you think of the choices of words you can no longer search for (listed in the comments to linked post)?

(Personally I think it's an amazing example of shit coding, as in order to prevent people searching for the word "spic" they've also removed the ability to search for things like "spicy foods" and "the spice girls". I also think it's fucked up that they haven't bothered to tell their user base, and that they've included the word "genocide" in the banned search terms.)
