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?

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!

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"

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:
