Dear LJ-users:

Use that instead of the front page, which has, remarkably, gone even more to shit.

(Not all of this post is about just the one post I link to.)

As I mentioned elsewhere in email, wrt the LJ versus DW thing, and a post by [livejournal.com profile] yuki_onna about LJ:

It's the social network equivalent of "I'm moving to Canada!", rolled
up with the tendency for liberals to sacrifice the good to the perfect
when going candidate-shopping.  "I realise that our opponent is a
dog-fucker, literally, but our best candidate... *used a sexist term*.
How could we ever support them?"  It's fucking exhausting.


I mention this because one of the reasons someone listed for not moving to DW was that one of the founders was part of some Russia-related wank.  (I haven't had the brains to look it up yet, so this remains hearsay.)  Oh yeah, LJ certainly can't measure up to that level of tomfoolery.

I mean, if you love LJ then you do, no worries, but this "DW has problematic things! I can't possibly move over there!" crap is crap.  DW, to my knowledge, doesn't have adverts that are actually spamware.  It hasn't yet put mandatory binary gender things into the code.  It has news posts that are actually informative -- none of this horsing around in the news post, only to find out way elsewhere about actual news about LJ.  And, bonus, it doesn't have ShareThis crap!  (I secretly strongly dislike that button.)

("But I bought a permanent account, so I don't see that stuff!"  Good for you?)

As for the comments re evangelising, (a) the loudest 2% of any group tends to be the assholes (see also feminism!), and (b) I haven't seen any of that in a dog's age.  Strikes me as a bit "the lurkers support me in email" anyhow, since it's always "I see people evangelising", but no... actual links.  Just an intuitive sense.  Mmhmm.

And I really do not understand this going-on about invite codes and how that's Elitist.  If it's elitism to not really care for acres of sockpuppetry, then so be it.  (As someone else noted, too, it's funny to combine accusations of elitism with going on about how Facebook and Twitter are all one-liners, but LJ has meaty discourse!.)


Frankly, I figure that part of it is a dislike of change, and part of it is "but all my stuff is here!".  That's what it tends to be for me.  I realise it's not fully rational, and I suck it up anyhow.

Insofar as anyone gives a damn:

LJ has retired the Advisory Board.

I've imported my [livejournal.com profile] ladytabitha entries and comments into my Dreamwidth account.  After I do some spot-checking to make sure the data did import and accurately, I'll be deleting that account.

Now, tagging can occur.  Finally.

Cool.  I have sufficiently modified this to export a bullet list of all untagged entries.  *pleased*

Next step: set futurefoo to remove entries as they are tagged (and the script is run).

LJ is experiencing comment notification suck, so until that's done, here's the Recent Comments link, in case you lost it:

I am testing three things:

  1. Will this post to both DW and LJ?
  2. Will all tags be used?  Including ones with a colon in it?
  3. Can I use the "more" tag as a cut tag in each?

Sooo:

I am going to try this one last time.  I'm testing this Wordpress LJ-XP plugin, wherein I can crosspost my WP entries over to Dreamwidth.  So, good morning.

(Whoop, afternoon, actually.)

For those who care...

There's a Greasemonkey script out there that automatically updates the date/time for a new Dreamwidth/Livejournal post.  The problem is, it continues to do so even if you are posting the entry out of order.  So, I updated the script.
