This should xpost to InsaneJournal.
My choices are:
- Stay at LJ through laziness and fear of losing what readership and/or community I have there.
- Move to GreatestJournal (I’m jenbooks there, of course) – it has more word of mouth right now, but a clunky version of LJ
- Move to InsaneJournal (I’m jenbooks there, too) – it’s got a newer version of the LJ software, but it’s not known very well.
Move to MySpaceHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA – no.
- Actually use my very own wordpress blog – see first point of laziness and readership.
- Some combination of the above
The funny thing is, yesterday was my sixth anniversary on LiveJournal. :)
Because bronxelf_ag001 is far more eloquent than I:
Writing about a thing (especially writing about a fictional account of a thing, using fictional people, in fictional situations) is not a crime. It is NOT THE EQUIVALENT OF ONE, either. Writing about incest Harry Potter fic where all the Weasleys are having mad naked donkey sex with a hoover and a bag of Mrs. Botts Everyflavour Beans *doesn’t make you a pedophile*. It makes you a very silly person, but it doesn’t make you a pedophile. I don’t give a rat’s ass HOW sick you think it is. If you think that one equates to the other you’re letting your own prejudices get in the way of logical thought at best and you’re an idiot at worst. It’s not a cause for deletion of a journal under LJ’s own TOS and goodness knows if you *really* wanted a reason to go after the fanficcers you could have done so AT ANY POINT citing copyright violations.
I got a GreatestJournal a while back – I’m jenbooks there too. Not sure exactly what I’m going to do, but I am getting more and more cheesed off with SixApart.
Also keep in mind that removing the very words from our language does not make the act go away. It just puts us back to a time when it was taboo to discuss these things, and folk will go back to not reporting the crime, but suffering in silence instead. Better that the actual perpetrators be properly hunted out by law enforcement and arrested than the problem merely swept away as if it doesn’t exist. – hakeber
For some reason the now reading plug in isn’t working. Wonder if I can post.
A plea for help: can someone poke around on my site a little bit? It’s probably going to take for-freakin’-ever, but it ought to come up eventually.
Let me know if it does take forever, and if you get any error messages on the page. OS and browser would help too.
I’m trying to eliminate the path as a source of the problem. I think there’s something wrong w/ the mysql server and/or database, but it could just be the path my little packets are taking.
That said, this’ll be the second time that gallery has really irritated me, and it seems to be spreading to wordpress. Like I said, I think it’s mysql.

I’ll love you forever!!
