Part II
SNAPS CUP MEME!
C'mon y'all. Cure me with love.


And since we're on matters of the utmost public importance, I'd like to discuss the great El Jay Petition.


Now, after seeing what grrliz came up with, and noting that the new user info page would be made optional, I almost regretted signing the petition. Of course the site is going to be updated and rearranged over time. Granted, it should be functional without hitting you over the head with a brick of obvious, and it should be moderately aesthetically pleasing.

What disturbs me is located in the bracketed "Update" section. If Six Apart is indeed hoping to push livejournal towards a youth audience, I'm going to be a little irritated. Yes, I joined el jay when I was in high school, and I have no qualms with youngsters getting a blog; in fact, I'd probably incourage it. That being said, I'd like to point a finger straight at Six Apart and say, "don't you fuckers even dare to think for a second that you're going to push your mature users over to VOX."

It really pisses me off that they think they're going to engineer a different site and turn this into another MySpace. The emo-boppers already have deadjournal anyway. As for me, my livejournal is five-years-old, and I've been paying for over two years by now. If they think that they are going to turn a profit by marketing to kids who have neither a significant source of income, nor the desire to forgo a milkshake for a paid account, they're fools. I started paying in college, after I really discovered how much I love writing and how much I loved livejournal as a product. I cherish my journal, and I love my friend's list. I wouldn't give it up for anything. I feel as though Six Apart is shitting on loyal LJers, and that's why I signed the petition. Because they seem to have forgotten, with all of these little changes and transitions, that WE are customers, and I'll be damned if the customer isn't always right.

Wanna know something weird? I saw William Miller, and all I could think of was the guy that I'm totally in love with, seeing as William is his middle name, and Miller is totally his last. Oi. *facepalm*
