I got online to write a RL post about Drama Board and friends cut/journal overhaul, but I'm much too pissed about something else right now. So, let's get my thoughts out first on what I've so far seen called "The Great LJ Wankfest", "Deletecalypse", "Deletegate", "Pornogate" and "Strikethrough 2007".
FIRST OFF: IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT, READ THIS AND/OR THIS IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT PASS GO. DO NOT COLLECT $200. If you agree/support this/are as pissed off as I am, go and sign this. If you'd like icons showing you survived this whole debacle, go here.
...Yeah, so stuff like this? And this? REALLY PISS ME OFF. Since when is targeting fandom productive? OH, THAT'S RIGHT, IT'S NOT. (RIP, pornish_pixies!)
I'm not even going to go into it any further, because it's just unbelievably retarded and everyone else has pretty much said it all and I'm so fucking pissed I can't even talk about it. However, all of LJ's reaction? THAT I have to deal with directly. So. If you know of people who have locked stuff that you think I would be interested in reading (translation: any Wincest writers who just locked up a bunch of stuff), please comment and give me usernames! I mostly just can't wait until this all calms down, and things are unlocked again... Grr...I'm just so pissed off.
Oh, ALSO: if you, like me, are seriously pissed off by this, delete all your interests (a good idea anyway, considering recent events) and replace them all with "freedom of speech". Even though this isn't technically a freedom of speech issue, it's easier to call it that (what with the four word interest limit, and all). Plus, that's what everybody's putting, and...power in numbers, right guys?
Alright, that's it for now. Sorry for the very rant-y entry; feel free to link/quote if you'd like to for any reason. I'll post that personal entry later. (Yes, Joya, I got your nudge ~.^)
ETA: Everyone go join fandom_counts right now!
