@wrigglemania These little sociopaths would crash a funeral and **** on the coffin and claim the dead deserved it because they used the word '****' once on Livejournal in 2004.
Anyone with two braincells to rub together knows what he meant. Any misinterpretation is 100% deliberate. **** 'em.

@niteliteghost as an adult, watching other adults much older than me seethe because they are that inept in not understanding the issue the tweet mentions. fandom isn't an adult thing,even back then it wasn't. most of the idiots in the qrt's likely had a cringy livejournal when they were a teen.

@HobbyistRust The other issue I see is VR isn’t an organic progression from social media. We got to social media in steps: from sites like Geocities to blogging engines to quasi-social media functionality like LiveJournal friend lists. Zuck announcing “now it’s in VR!” just doesn’t make sense

@matoakit Said back in 2008 on livejournal that this whole house market issue would come back after being bailed out but much worse this time around.
As hard as it is, they should let it crash and default back to ground zero and restart again.

@localmediarocks @nytimes The key is that the products that they have built integrate all the content to minimize the "link out" problem that live blogs used to have with embedded tweets and youtube videos. #LiveJournalism looks and feels like social but keeps the audience and builds the stories within.

@Ao3Tikli @katerina_sings That is the problem, though. I have no idea what I want to read! I used to read pretty exclusively through recs and rec lists on LiveJournal. Even when AO3 was up, people still made rec lists. Now when I do search I search, get halfway through a fic, it's not my thing, start
Reported 2022-09-24 17:19:14
these youths don't understand what fandom was like pre-AO3. if you wanted fix you had to join a million message boards, search all the various livejournal communities, & all the different fanfic archives for different fandoms, different ships, different kinks...it was a battle.

Tbh I’d be more devastated if one day livejournal went down under… I mean ffnet was the gateway for me definitely, but i think at some point some of the fandoms and ships I indulged in were more heavily tight-knit over at lj and not so much ffnet anymore.

@ashposton There were authors I followed on livejournal who had their fics linked on sites like this, then deleted their LJ and the other sites went down, and that was that. Forever grateful to the ones who shifted stuff over to newer sites, even if just to archive it
