Am I the only one not getting email alert when people post on my LJ?
raxacorricofallapatorius: (pissy)
[ profile] ljspeaks has all the latest info for those concerned with the latest LJ/SUP issues.

To see just how stupid/crazy this can be, check out LJ's banned search terms.

The intent here is an honest attempt to clean up the shite that should be unavailable, but for heaven's sake, must they be so stupid about it? Where are all the rational, thinking people in this company?

I'm going to keep this journal open, because I have lots of non-fan friends here that I don't want to lose contact with, but for those who are migrating, I have accounts at Greatest Journal, Insane Journal (thanks for the tip, [ profile] laguera25), and at JournalFen.

Feel free to friend the journal of choice, and I will friend back. This is going to be awkward for a while until things settle down, so I'm going to mainly post here and use the others as places to read other journals. If I find that the majority of my flist has found a home at one journal, then I'll start posting there. For the moment, posting at four different journals is a particular form of madness I'm not willing to take on. :c)

You're It!

I finally decided to start using tags on my posts.

*waits a moment for the horrified babble to die down*

Yes, that's right. In all these years, I've never bothered to tag any of my entries. But with the possible switch to other journaling communities, I thought I'd better knuckle down and start labeling.

Just what I need right now - another time-eating project. I have a room to wallpaper, dammit!

Here's a fabulous idea from [ profile] elements. We as consumers *do* deserve a say in how LJ and 6A do things.

Thanks for the link, [ profile] summerborn. :c)

And for the record, I'm pretty sure this is the last thing I'm going to say on this subject.

I grabbed this off of [ profile] rm's site - a link to some further info on the whole Strikethrough debacle, written by [ profile] stewardess. It makes for interesting reading, and finally makes sense of the "whys" and the timing. Go here to read it.

I'm not convinced that we have seen the last of this kind of situation. If Six Apart makes LJ into a publicly traded company, then we all are at the mercy of the American sponsors, who tend to be um...conservative, to say the least.

I'm keeping my Greatest Journal account, and am also interested in the idea that [ profile] mylexie put forward about having a community based here in the Netherlands.

In the scheme of things, LJ is not exactly the priority of all Priorities in my life, but I'd sure hate to lose it. :c)

Well, apparently the kerfluffle over "DeleteGate" has been brought to a satisfactory conclusion. Those people who were merely discussing Nabokov, or working on their abuse issues, will be re-instated, and LJ has effectively apologized and admitted that they were over-zealous and not careful enough with their research.

What really impresses me, though, is how many people got together on this and actually *did* something about it instead of just moaning and complaining. Or walking away. The last time I checked, [ profile] fandom_counts had over 25,000 members. TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND!!!! In the space of only a few hours, that many people joined up to let themselves be counted and let their feelings be known.

That, my friends, it awesomesauce.

I'm not sure what is going to happen down the line with LJ, but just as an FYI, I also have an account at Greatest Journal, user name torenheksje. Feel free to friend me if you're headed that way. :c)

I don't write fanfic, but I do read it. Since when has writing fiction on ANY topic been illegal? Where exactly does Six Apart feel their liability lies? Writing a story that contains homosexual sex/chan/incest doesn't mean you practice it, endorse it, or solicit it, just as writing about murder doesn't mean that you are a murderer, or endorse killing, or are soliciting a gun for hire.

When did America become the Land of the Cowardly? Why do so many people/companies roll over and show their bellies when the Thought Police demand to re-make America in their own image? Why does Freedom of Speech only seem to apply to those who complain the loudest?

By all means, get rid of the kiddie pr0n. It needs to die a permanent death and the people who perpetrate it should all suffer eternal agony. But an idea is not an act, and as far as I'm aware, you can only be held liable for actions.

So. I'm not saying anything new, but it shocks me how many rights are being slowly taken away in the name of "well, it MIGHT be this" in the U.S.
