Why I'm not participating in the LJ content strike

First off, I don't mind other people doing it. Getting enthusiastic and moved to act for a cause -- that's a good thing, right? I'm not going to be posting/commenting/giving them page hits in a deliberate effort to undermine the strike. I'm just going to carry on like I normally do.

I wrote out the first version of this in a comment elsewhere, and figure I'd repost it here (modified and updated for latest developments).

Obviously, if anyone has a good counter-argument, I'd be happy to hear it, either in the comments here or, if you are participating in the strike, via email.
