I know, seriously, I should find this freakishly annoying, but mostly, I'm trying to remember this post--circa 2004, 2005? Around the time Livejournal was sold. And someone on news--or somewhere--made this prediction of what else Livejournal would lose over the coming years while like, everyone told him crazy! No way! You're kidding! OMG YOU ARE SO STUPID SHUT UP THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
I seriously want that post. And I want to checkmark it. Then I want to create an account, send a copy to everyone who mocked, and say "HAHAHA!"
As you can see, I am not doing any of that, because that is a lot of effort. And also, well. Again. A lot of effort.
However, this was funny.
ru_news announced it to their userbase before, say, news got around to it. When they got around to it. Which was just a bit ago? Right?
Translated at sf_drama. So far, it seems a legit translation. Let us all ponder the news community no longer being--er, about news.
To entertain ourselves--list out five things Livejournal will never ever change, because my God, they wouldn't! It's part of Livejournal! And we will gleefully check it off as they remove it in the future. Just to see.
