So, uh, I know I've been out of it for a while but WTF is going on in the LJ world?

I assume you mean the strike?

Our new Russian overlords abolished basic acounts. They say they won't automaticly make existing ones into plus acounts but we know they will. So theres supposed to be a 24 hour posting strike. But their probably laughing at us right now.

Everyone on Lj would need to strike for weeks to make a difference. It gives strikes a bad name.

Yeah, that thing.

Seriously? LJ belongs to Russia? Geez, I'm out of it for one week and we go all revolution. WTH? So, does that mean LJ is all paid accounts now?

One day of not posting will NOT make a difference. I'm prolly still gonna post. Hell, I got this thing for life, might as well use it right?

Yeah. SUP, Their a rich media company. No on gets rich in Russia unless their in Putins back pocket. Nah, they want to make all non paid acounts plus acounts so they cna plaster adds all over them.

I've got a paid, but if they were serious about alot of people striking for weeks then maybe i'd join in.

Ah. See, I never really read the news posts. It bores me cos I have no idea what they're talking about. I can see the 'I hate advertising' stance but hell, it's a business, they're gonna do whatever it is that keeps it that way. Meh.

Ew, that means the spurting blood is EVERYWHERE!

Oh, well, see those I can handle.

*nodnod* You wouldn't believe how many cleaning crews I've had to send out.

Indeed. In fact, those I'm rather fond of.

Mmmmm... *iz satisfied* It's like having a Buffy/SGA crossover without having the Buffy/SGA x-over. I'm enjoying that and Pacific Rim & Revelation... but that prolly has more to do with my WW love right now.

Well sort of, yes. Though I still haven't seen Buffy..

I don't know too much about what's going on, but it seems to me that it's people getting worked up a lot about something that's LJ's completely allowed to do and protesting by doing something that's not going to make any difference.

Someone sent me a link that summed it up pretty well: http://tafkae.livejournal.com/186859.html

Oh, well, that makes much more sense now. Of course, I was part of the one percent that DID read the TOS before clicking 'agree' so I don't really have a problem with it anyway. *shrug* Thanks for the simpler 'splainy post.
