In light of LJ's latest assfuckery, I've decided to dust off this old account (not that I used either of them very much in the last few years, but I digress). Haven't decided yet whether I'll just let my LJ account sit and not crosspost/update it anymore, or if I'll delete it. My LJ RP accounts I'll probably just let go when the next purge comes around; the ones I really want to save have already been imported over to Dreamwidth anyway.

So, I'm back. In case, you know, anyone wants to say hi.

Livejournal is undergoing "emergency maintenance".

Dollars to donuts everybody will be switched over to the new friends page when LJ comes back up.

Well, so far LJ's latest asshattery hasn't been enough to make me jump ship completely, although oddly enough it's coming closer than their last asshattery has. I'm actually considering transferring/importing a few of my RP journals over to DW, mainly the most-used ones and ones that have sentimental value but I don't use a lot.

So for now looks like I'm staying put over at LJ; the ?style=mine function plus LJ add-on has made it a little more bearable. Now we'll just wait and see if the higher-ups actually listen to their userbase for once.

You want me to rant about something, LJ? Okay then. How about I rant about the way you assholes completely fucking buggered up the comment pages?

I mean, seriously? Are you not listening to the majority of your users deliberately? How has it completely escaped your notice that WE DO NOT LIKE THE CHANGES AND WE WERE HAPPY WITH THINGS THE WAY THEY WERE?!? We liked having subject lines in our comments. We liked having the drop down, alphabetical list-style menu for our user icons. We liked being able to click a link and move threads to the left so they weren't all scrunched up on the right side of the page. We liked having those options available to everybody, not just people who chose not to disable customized comment pages in S2.

NEWSFLASH: Your designer doesn't know half of what he thinks he does. He obviously doesn't know the users, otherwise he wouldn't have cocked things up as badly as he has right now.

Because you know what? People do use the comment subject lines. We use them for meme communities, for roleplaying to help keep threads straight. Hell, we use them in normal LJ entries as another way of expressing our feelings.

THIS IS NOT OKAY! DO ME A FUCKING FAVOR AND LISTEN TO YOUR USERS FOR A GODDAMN CHANGE! WE DO NOT LIKE THIS! CHANGE IT THE FUCK BACK!

Because if you don't, one of these days you're going to fuck things up so badly that you know what will happen? All those users, paying and non-paying, who always threaten to move over to InsaneJournal and Dreamwidth and leave LJ behind? They will follow through with their threats. And then your mighty little empire will be nothing.

Caught wind of this via [livejournal.com profile] ways_back_room, so I thought I'd share it with my f-list. While LJLogin and Juggler still remain borked (I've heard rumors that Juggler's supposed to be fixed, but so far haven't seen evidence of it for myself in Chrome), some ingenious person has come up with this temporary workaround for the Firefox sidebar. I've tested it, and so far it works.

In light of all of the latest kerfluffle-llama-drama on LJ (and I'm not moving, either), there's only one piece of fallout from it that I can get behind.

An Open Letter to LJ from [livejournal.com profile] thevelvetsun.

Because if pedophilic material, fictional or non-fictional, goes against LJ's TOS, then pro-anorexic communities should be suspended under the same TOS. Encouraging others to starve themselves in the name of weight loss does not equal support in recovery.

I have obtained TMS Season 2 on DVD. Hopefully I'll have an update for my Scooter webpage ready to go by Richard's birthday.

I don't know why I always wait until around his birthday to update the site. Why can't I update it sooner?

---

Am currently on my Christmas music kick. Must be the heat.

Well, ElJay's done issued a statement and apologized.

I may have forgiven them enough to put down dollars for a permanent account when they come up for sale again. We'll see.
