For my own reminders, since I like quotes, and comparisons to land wars in Asia automatically rock.



From The 100th Day in news, March 12, 2008

Wow. So in celebration of your 100th day of owning LJ, you bend your customer base over and sodomize them? I was not aware of this particular practice. Was this perhaps developed in Siberia?

Jason, you're fighting a land war in Asia here. Really, you are. Do yourself a favor and get out before you find yourself accidentally committed to bombing Cambodia ...

Awesome pie chart of userbase!

snarkbite:[...]People create new accounts at the drop of a hat at LiveJournal[....]
cmdr_zoom: And that's what they're trying to stop, duh. "Your usage habits WILL conform to our business model."
dubiously: In Soviet Russia, LJ update you?
--found by montanaharper, link

I HAVE MANY ACCOUNTS THAT ARE ABLE TO GO TO BASIC OR TO PLUS. AS I AM LEAVING LJ, I WILL BE SELLING THEM. THEY ARE $5 EACH.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, PLEASE EMAIL YAYBASICACCOUNTS@GMAIL.COM.

It only hurts at first, baby, promise. Who loves ya? El Jay...that's RIGHT! Now bend over...

Mmm, this aura of condescension is so much more delicious than my cheap TV dinner!

one_cup_of_tea: Does it have to patronize, annoy and lie to its userbase to grow adapt change develop?
lorata: That's totally a feature, you guys.
one_cup_of_tea: Can they add a feature where, when you log in, lj rapes you up the ass and steals your wallet?
lorata: You're in luck! I believe that one's scheduled for the next un-announced release!
-- convo in comments, link

Oh also I love how you made this post which demonstrates the bureaucratic bullshit most blogers find completely offensive
"Overnight you also raised legitimate concerns about how this change was unveiled - message received, loud and clear. We're still working out how to strike just the right tone when communicating with such a diverse and complex collection of communities."
Here is an example of what not to say to a bloger as what the bloger hears is
"Overnight you made us realize you won't hold your heads to our ass and listen for the blow with glee, we will be more careful the next time we fart"
-- hdofu, link

Wow. Is it challenging, using that many words to say absolutely nothing at all?

angrychicken: I can tell you, I was absolutely befuddled and dumbfounded by the amount of choices. You should see me try to order off the dollar menu at McDonalds.
claire: Dude, I am still trying to decide what to have for lunch 3 days ago.
legomymalfoy: I get confused at stoplights. I mean, red yellow AND green? D:

The one that really cracked me up was the thread about how LJ doesn't need to know their user base because they're planning to shape us to fit their business model, not the other way around.

The final comment in the thread (as of when I read it at least) was:
In Soviet Russia, LJ updates you.

*snicker*

Tell me you remember where that was? In a general page way? *hopeful*

Almost completely off topic, with other values for "bad" -- my sister and I suffered through watching Alexander last weekend, resorting to cracking each other up in order to get through it. Of course, as Alexander moves east, she yelled at the screen: "Classic mistake! Never get involved in a land war in Asia!" And later, Alexander mentioned stopping in Sicily on the way back to Greece, and we howled. "And the biggest mistake, going up against a Sicilian when death is on the line!"

OMG I LOVE THAT MOVIE SO BAD.

"YOU LEFT YOUR KING IN ASIA!"

God, I have an *icon* of that moment somewhere.

*dying*

I think it's fucking awesome that rahaeli is getting to be on the other side of things and calling the morons on their moronicity publically, not having to be the public face of said moronicity. She brings such good snark, doesn't she? Landwar in asia!

you're fighting a land war in Asia here.

But only slightly less well known is this: Never go in against a Sicilian when free accounts are on the line.

*giggles hysterically*

Btw, are there somewhere a rule that you can't sell your account? I have two extra basic and a permanent one, throw in a name change token and voila! ;)

*starts giggling* Actually, I'm not sure. *frowns* Good question.

There was a sad lack of many macros but so many good one liners. Almost made up for it.

*cracking up*
maybe they think we LIKE being raped up the ass cuz we often write about it?

hm.

You have a point. *ponders*

I know I shouldn't laugh while getting screwed, it's just that I'm ticklish...

Heh. Thanks for compiling these- I really really don't want to go over there. The t-shirt burning one made me laugh out loud.

I had to stop and re-read on that one.

Oh the memories of seeing the youtube....

That Pie chart is made of win.....also....*le sigh* what now lj? what now? Plz to be leaving me alone nao I have big headache

I do like how the management style slowly degrades though. Like watching an avalanche fall very. Very. Slowly.

YAYBASICACCOUNTS@GMAIL.COM FTW!! same for "red yellow AND green?" :D :D

And that pie chart - oh man, the pie chart.


I can tell you, I was absolutely befuddled and dumbfounded by the amount of choices. You should see me try to order off the dollar menu at McDonalds.

Oh snap.
