Coasting and not Posting.

On Friday March 21st there will be a content strike here on Livejournal. This is in regard to them doing away with Basic Accounts without telling anyone. This IS going to affect us as a community. Now the only free options contains advertisement. From legacywriters

The one-day content strike is on for this Friday, March 21, from midnight GMT to midnight GMT.

That means no posting for me! Also.. no commenting.

For 24 hours, we will not post or comment to LJ. Not in our own journals, not in communities. Not publicly, privately, or under friends-lock.

This is a protest that will have long-lasting effects, showing up forever in the daily posting statistics.

This is a protest that will not harm LJ in the long run, as leaving LJ might do.

This is a protest that will demonstrate the power of community, as all users unite to support Basic users and the concept of adfree space.

This is a protest that will educate the new owners that LJ is driven by user-created content.


I'm for this strike, because it sucks to be forced to use ads. Even if they are silly google ads, it clogs up your page and in my opinion... it looks ugly. In fact, I've yet to see ads that look decent on anything. They're out of place and annoying. Not only that, when was the last time you clicked on an ad to get something? They're pretty much worthless and they're only here to give the big guys money.

Don't let the big guys tred you down. Like someone said earlier: Livejournal is serious business.

All kidding aside.. most of my friends on here had free accounts & I don't like LJ raping them with ads.

If one day you meet your favorite super star, what questions you would like to do to him/her?

to do him/her ?? haha. Okay...
