The History of Booju Mooju
Booj was created in 2004 after noticing an amusing trend in the breastfeeding communities. Formula feeders started attempting to "infiltrate" the breastfeeding comms in order to steal locked posts, and breast feeders would do the same to the formula feeding communities which started popping up. The original purpose of this comm was to keep drama out of those other communities, and the original subject here was solely breastfeeding vs formula feeding (hence the name Boob Juice vs Moo Juice). But the community quickly became so popular that the topic was expanded to include all parenting subjects and eventually expanded to all debate subjects.
Years later, a particularly heated debated sparked major drama. Apparently reporting TOS violations to LJ abuse so the offenders could be fully suspended was too difficult a concept for some of our members to grasp, so instead the mods of booj earned an unfounded rep of being smelly racist pirate hookers. Booj has always only been lightly moderated (who wants biased mods on power trips in a light-hearted silly community?) and we've ALWAYS followed the same guidelines as LJ's TOS. Regardless, the drama surrounding that storm dragged on for months even after the offenders were banned and/or suspended by LJ abuse. During that time, unbeknownst to the mods here, some members created a more politically correct highly moderated carbon copy of this comm with an official zero tolerance policy for anything they deemed inappropriate. Since then, many other communities ending in "ju" have popped up.
Eventually all the original mods here left LJ, and over the next couple of years with no one to keep things going, most of the members here joined other comms and usually post there instead. Only time will tell if this community will ever become active again, but the early years of booj will forever live on in the mental lolbanks of everyone.
