randomly, on Monday

I know, intellectually, that this is not the normal way to handle these--er, issues, with news.

But.



Not Work Safe. Unless you live in Ancient Greece. Really Ancient Greece.

And the last on that page had four hundred something before the--protesters gravitated.

I--does 6A really think they'll get bored? I mean, sure they will--but you know, I'm not sure that will happen too soon. And honestly, it's the internet. There is a lot of porn art out there.

Also, we are about four entries away from hitting Strikethrough 2007: The Earlier Version's already maxed entries.

Thought

You know, I could be wrong about this not being the best way to handle it. As protests go, I think Gandhi would approve. He always struck me as having a sense of humor.

But--hmm. It's not like we have other options *other* than moving, and I'll be honest with myself--one, I don't want to, and two, even if I did, there is no where that can accomodate all of us. Livejournal got to the place it's in because it crept into millions and it still had problems. Its' not that I'm not willing to--hell, if we have to, we can create our own mailing lists that *aren't* on yahoogroups (at least, it will be a *lot cheaper* to run a mailing list off a server than an entire livejournal thingie).

(Yes, I'm reading on the fan-run blog stuff being talked about/beta'ed around livejournal. I'm still thinking on that.)

For the Record

I--may be the only person on earth who thinks burr86 was totally out of line and yet feel really sorry for him. This is something I would do. I mean, by total accident. Wander into this room, sit down with some people, think, God, my day sucks, make a mocking statement about the customers to blow off steam, then realize you are talking to the customers!!!!! And since he has possibly the worst human relations skills I have ever seen, we can't be too surprised he's--not human relating.

Granted, this room is virtual and he's being incredibly--some word. I don't have a word. But I'm not sure he meant to, you know, actually swipe publicly at us where we could see it. Speaking from sad experience with lj staff now, I'm kind of convinced now that there is some kind of disconnect. It's kind of like--okay. I erased the comparison for being insulting. To what species, I won't say.

*rubs forehead*

Update

All fic is privatized on lj that has anyone doing anything below age eighteen and I cleared the links in memories as well.

Now I kind of want to redesign my website. *mulls* Anyone have any theme ideas? I just--fine, I admit it--I really want to try out my new understanding of div codes.



ETA:

Awesome post on the burr86 thing by gmth (link courtesy of trobadora)

But all that aside, I have to ask you something: Do you GET IT now? Do you see how easily fiction gets conflated with reality?
