LJ = Epic Fail  
I can stand for a lot, and although a lot of LJs new policies do not directly effect me I encourage people to take a stand. I know a lot of people are claiming that we (the protesters) are just whiners, but think about it. LJ is making all of these changes that just screw the customer over, because that is what we are, customers. Even people who are on the advisory board are being ignored. LJ refuses to listen to their users and according to their own posts, consider people who are not "with" them to be out to get them, I just want this whole thing to be fair.

I am not super pissed about the not basic account thing, it is annoying but I get it
The tag thing needs to be fixed and handled better so that it does not alienate the customers. I agree with finding a way to protect younger users from inappropriate content, but this is getting ridiculous.

What pisses me off more than anything? The way LJ treats its customers, calling them blackmailers and refusing to meet the need of the consumer.

If things do not change for the better I will leave as soon as my paid account runs out and it looks like I will go to IJ. WE can make communities there. (Hey Alistra, when we move do you want to start an rp?)

back when the whole LJ thing went down, I signed up with IJ and used the same username I have for LJ, and created some of my communities over there as well, that way if I decide to make the switch my stuff is already and I know I can keep the same username, lol, and some of the same communities

Just something to think about.

I may be mistaken, but with all of the takeover stuff from LJ being sold to Six-Apart and I forget who else now... do they even have a say in what happens anymore?
