Ok, so I'm catching up on the comments in the lj_releases thread when I came across this post:

http://lj-releases.livejournal.com/79480.html?thread=10004856#t10004856

"Thank you for your inquiry.

There is no way to turn off the message regarding the beta version of the Friends page/feed. It will remain visible to all users during the beta period, after which point the new Friends page will become the only version available.


So there you go. LJ definitely wants to drive me away.

I was reading on the lj releases group and got to the end of page 12 (WHEW!), refreshed the page and in the time it took me to read page 12, it went up to 19 pages.  And I'm a pretty fast reader.  Not that I expect it will make any difference to them.  They are russian after all, and they are kind of used to the dictatorial model of government.

Also, I encourage all of you to get a Dreamwidth journal.  Apparently they are open to everyone now with no code needed.  You can easily import your journal entries from here, including tags AND security settings.

Stole this from a community on Journalfen. I am so mad. Y'all know I'm visually impaired so I read everything from my FL and have the gigantic font so I can see. Well, LJ is taking away our FL customization. Yep. You heard right. Our FLs are all going to look the same, and that same is unreadable when you are visually impaired.

Here's the Journalfen post:
What are they up to now?
How could they possibly fuck up their own site any worse than they already have?
Everyone's FriendsList will look the same. Styled in that migraine-inducing blinding white.
With infinite scrolling. (Note that [info]ruljautonews only translates Russian LJ news posts into English and has no actual affiliation with LJ or it's staff.)
Oh, and LJ's U.S. office is shutting down.

Hey Dreamwidth? Expect yet another flood of sign ups.

ETA: It's live now. It hasn't been forced yet, but there's an annoying bar tellingme to change to the new style.



Me again. I have just been to my FL. I have my prefs set to display place holders for pictures and video (saves sideways scrolling sometimes) and it's completely ignoring that and showing pictures, forcing me to scroll sideways. It's been great here on LJ all these years, but I think this will do it in for me. I just don't know if I can stick around with this mess. Scrolling sideways is a complete pain and I hate it, and it's stupid to have to have my LJ window full screen. Honestly, it's like they WANT LJ to go belly up.

I just have to mock for a moment. In this thread: http://dear-gnome.livejournal.com/2392133.html?style=mine&nc=6#comments this person is complaining that every other player in the game besides her sucks. I can't stop laughing at her! What is that saying? If everyone around you sucks, maybe it's not THEM that suck but you? Hahaha! Yeah, I think we've found the problem.

On a more somber note, this sort of attitude is why people from other games hate WoW players and why I want WoW players to STAY IN WOW and never leave it. Don't come to my games with your crappy attitude and hate-filled screeds, we have a very nice community, TYVM, and we help each other gladly because it's the right thing to do.

I came back to WoW for a short time to help my son-in-law. There's this thing called a "scroll of resurrection" and if you use it on a player who has left the game and they re-sub for a while you get a bunch of free stuff. So I went along with it and bought a time card so I may as well play while I have time on there. But I tell ya, I now remember exactly what it was that burnt me out on WoW. Not the quests, not the dungeons, not the dailies, but the other players. I'd forgotten just how toxic that atmosphere is and it was truly shocking when I saw it again.

ETA:
This girl is really unintelligent too. Honestly, if I didn't laugh about people like this, I'd cry. I'd love to figure out what makes people become like this. It's so sad!

I'm not going back into the _p post about the crazed thugs who attacked the American consulate, because my blood pressure just cannot take the strain from the people who are falling all over themselves to say "it's ok when muslims do it." No It's not. It's not ok when anyone does it. It's not ok to kill over media. Period. End of story. And it's almost funny because their own countrymen say it's not ok!

It's also pretty xenophobic (I'm not going to say racist because "muslim" isn't a race) to say that "those people can't help themselves" or "of course they'll riot, those people are like that!" or any of the other ethnocentric bullshit statement so-called liberals are flinging around over there.

So if anyone is here from there, I'm not even going to acknowledge that kind of crap, so I'm out.

Is this happening to anyone else? I can't open any comments at all. I even tried typing in the URL by hand and it's not working. Why can't they leave well enough alone? They keep making it worse and worse!

Ok, here's a new one on me. I saw an idiot post "one in the same" instead of "one and the same". One in the same doesn't even make sense! What is the one supposedly inside of? AHAHAHA!

You know, I just have no patience for stupid people. I just don't. Do you ever get someone that keeps commenting to you and they are so stupid, they won't learn, they don't listen, they don't read, until you get so fed up with them you filter them straight to trash? Yeah. It's like that.

Irritants

Just some stuff that irritates me.

People who pronounce "armoire" as "armwah". Yeah, we know you took French in high school, unfortunately you forgot it all so stop it. That goes for "foy AY" too. Also, marquise shaped gemstones. They aren't up above a movie theater.

Pollen. We are having record high pollen counts and my sinuses are NOT HAPPY about this.

My period. It's *STILL* going on. It's much lighter, but for pete's sake, period, you were late yes, but enough is enough! It's been almost two weeks of bleeding now, and I really need you to go away for a month.


I had some more, but this headache has driven them right out of my mind, so I'll go ahead and post this as is.

Atheists wonder why a lot of people think they are just hipster dufuses.

This just shows they aren't so much in it for lack of belief, they are just showing out to be jerks to the Christians. How in the world does the blessed portion of the highway impact them at all? No, these are just big old hipster dufus jerkwads.

Goat Cheese

Since my last post went over like a lead balloon, let's try something else.

This has actually been bugging me for a while. On a lot of Food Networks shows they'll talk about "goat cheese" and then no further specification! I mean there are like 50 million different cheeses made from goat milk so which one are they talking about?!? That's like saying "cow cheese" as if that would help someone making a grocery list! WTF Food Network?!?

So this teacher in Michigan decided to change the lyric to "Don we now our bright apparel." Ugh, dumb! Good on the principal though, for handling it well!
