Change of management...

So! I hear that LJ is owned by the Russians now1!

I'm sure several people are on my side when I say, "Good riddance, SixApart!"

Seriously, I hate what they did to ye olde el jay. I am still pissed about the ads. And yes, I do have a paid account and adblocker... but it's the principle of the thing! Sponsored communities, Plus accounts, all of it just irritates me. I'm hoping the new management won't continue with the internet-ad-whore trend. We shall see2.

How're all y'all?

1 In Soviet Russia, Livejournal posts you!
2 According to the article, SixApart will continue to handle ads and sponsorship for the next year.

IAWTP. Ever since 6A entered the picture I have coincidentally (? or not lol) stopped using LJ quite as much. The ads kill me, and I have adblock too! I hate seeing compressed little journal entries knowing that there's a hidden ad there. And I hate how we're supposed to be competing with myspace and facebook, when LJ is a completely different WORLD. idek. But I guess we'll have to wait and see how SUP handles LJ. It sounds okay for now!

... for now.

I really dig that users will be affecting policy again... and that we'll even be able to vote! I mean c'mon... LJ has polls, let's use 'em!

Yes it it strange. I leave for a bit and LJ gets sold. I hope it is for the better? I agree with you about the ads. It ia annoying a bit. All we need are pop-ups.
