okay so you know what

I’m keeping LJ for friendslist reading and commenting and that’s gonna be pretty much it.

I has a DW and I has seven invite codes to hand out.

PSA for those reading from LiveJournal

  • Posted on August 31, 2010 at 11:24 pm

Until LJ decides to let me not allow people to crosspost replies to my posts to Facebook and/or Twitter, y’all will need to head over to the blog to comment on posts.

I’m assuming those of you on my friends list are considerate enough to not crosspost replies to locked posts.

In before blaming of free users

ETA: Now might be a good time to back up your journal. Just sayin’.

ETA2: While LJArchive or the software of your choice is slurping down your LJ entries, pass the time with a fun game: find the part of this page that made me LOL.

Son Of ETA: Okay, okay, folks, the chances of LJ totally going poof a la JournalSpace are probably somewhere between “slim” and “nil.” And apparently the number of people actually laid off wasn’t correct in that article up there. Still, a) booting a bunch of employees with little notice and no severance is generally not a sign of a healthy business, and b) it’s better to have the backup and not need it than the other way around anyway.

ha ha, oh wow.

Speaking of Doing It Wrong…

Since I don’t read or speak Russian (and since I’m mostly actually sitting here going LOL WHAT HA HA OH WOW) I’m going to withhold froth and vitriol. But if that’s even a partially accurate translation, fuck SUP.

[ETA: In a shocking turn of events, Babelfish’s translation isn’t entirely accurate! Better translation from Insaint here.]

You’re doing it wrong.

Apparently there is some kind of OMG LJ STRIKE scheduled for Friday, in which we’re supposed to STICK IT TO THE LJ MAN by not posting anything on our journals or commenting on anyone else’s or anything. For one day. Yeah, I don’t get it either.

The only reason I’m technically participating: I will be out of town without Internet access. Or else I would post twice as much.

People? I’m right there with you on the shittiness of not telling LJ at large about ditching Basic accounts and trying to bullshit it over with “oh, it’s just to streamline the signup process,” not so much on the interest flap–I’m not sure why that was such a big deal, guys, they didn’t censor anything, you could still have the interests, you could still click on an interest and see other people who listed it, and who actually pays attention to the “most popular interest” list anyway? I’ve never even looked at it.

Where was I?

Oh. Right.

If you really think a 24-hour boycott of LiveJournal is going to make any kind of an impression on anyone who matters, then I have a lovely piece of oceanfront property in Boise I’d love to show you.

You know what would make an impression? If all of you jumping around going “OMG YAY 24-HOUR STRIKE” deleted your journals en masse and LEFT them deleted.

All of your journals. Your regular journal. Your family-and-coworker-safe journal. Your regular fandom journal. Your porn fandom journal. Your 1000000 RP character journals. Your sockpuppet troll journal. Your fifty gajillion communities. All of them.


And I bet not a goddamned one of you is going to do it.

Hell, I won’t even do it. My friends list is handy and I am happy enough to keep the bulk of my stuff on my own webspace and keep draining LJ’s space and bandwidth by crossposting to a number of Basic accounts (yeah, okay, I threw down $5 so I could make a feed for 100 Candles, but I’m not renewing) they’ll never make a dime off of.

If you’re that gung-ho about STICKING IT TO THE MAN, then stick it to the man. Delete your LiveJournal accounts, take your toys, and go somewhere else. Go to Insanejournal. Go to Journalfen. Go to Blogspot. Take some damn intiative and install WordPress on your own webspace–hell, Dreamhost has it on one-click install, a retarded cocker spaniel could do it.

But if all the commitment you’re willing to make as far as screwing unto LJ as it has screwed unto you is a 24-hour “strike,” please sit down and shut the fuck up.
