    Hey, you know that the only causes really worth fight for are the lost ones. =)

      Your comment is like a Zen koan.

      Other things are also koans.

        I’m no stranger to koans.

          You know the Way, and so do I.

            A full Enlightenment’s what I’m thinking of.

    Oh, boy, you ain’t wrong. This will “work” like the gasoline boycott did.

      Hey, your icon has lulz in it!

      1. mikester

        It’s my special “Talkin’ about LiveJournal” icon!

    As always you are far more succinct than I ever am.

        i wish i was that happy when a cock magically appeared near my junk.


        if you were a true commie you would be stoked on the oppression of the poor working class to bring forth the revolution. marx is giving you the stink eye.

          marx is giving you the stink eye

          Oh, screw that old bugger. I’m pushing for a polytheacratic dispersed republic of communist mankilling multiracial lesbian cyberwitches..

        Woo, it’s not really a party ’till the futanari arrive.

        1. nebris

          Ya got that right, buddy! ;D

        Don’t you just hate when that happens? It’s *so* embarrassing.

  6. snuh

    I understand how they feel, but I’m not sure they’re focused on the proper points. I hate ads, I hate to think of all the people that visit my LJ that are subject to that fucking snap widget, but I can always go elsewhere because it’s their ball and bat (which I have in other situations just fine). My Friday Fiver will be posted a bit after 12:00AM tomorrow – let my friend list shrink!!1!

      Re: marx is giving you the stink eye

      Do they make that snap widget mandatory in unpaid accounts? Cause at least you can opt out if you pay.

        Cause at least you can opt out if you pay.

        Are you sure? It turns it off your LJ for everyone that visits?

    I didn’t know where to go with this, so I brought it here.

      This feels more like an art piece than a porn video. I think it’s a metaphor for the lj strike.

    2. vanbeast

      I was halfway through the video before I realized what was going on. Bravo.

    here, here!

    Why don’t people understand that LJ is a business, kinda like Urban Outfitters, and just like UO they can change around- the way it looks, what they sell, how much they sell it for…

    why are the rules supposed to be different for LJ?

    On the other hand: If the owner of an international website is giving interviews to respond to an “absurd” protest action and admits there are problems among his spin, then the action actually worked. It may not live up to the organizers fanciful rhetoric and expectations, but it got a result in advance. Damn!

    Lets boycott electricity on the 21st!

  11. handstil

    Perhaps the boycott can be extended…indefinitely?

  12. vanbeast

    hahahahah yes. I agree. I love it when the winers forget that there are (VERY GENEROUS ESTIMATE) 50,000 of them and *10 million* who don’t give a shit.

    Nobody. Fucking. Cares. And this is coming from someone who A) used to work for LiveJournal B) thinks SUP is fucking up and C) … well… did I always say shut up? Shut up.

    The best part will be on Saturday, when there’s a post surge as everyone says DID YOU SEE HOW MUCH I DIDN’T POST YESTERDAY???
