Six Apart's press contact (as listed in their most recent press release, dated today):
Office: 415.344.0056 x 107
I've already called and left a message. This might be a better way to get an official response from Six Apart/LJ about the mass LJ deletions than having to leave comments on the latest lj news posts.
ETA: please pass this on if you feel like it, or link back, whatever to get the word out
