LJ Content Strike - Starts 1pm Friday for us kiwis

Yerwot? Yeah. I don't normally get involved in internet politics but fuckit, LJ's now ignoring their own newly-created advisory board and trying to sneak changes through without even telling their users, never mind consulting them. Yes, I started with a free account. It was ad-free too. Now I have a paid account, thanks to a kind soul who did something nice for me when I was down. Seems the new owners of LJ think that new users should either pay, or have ads all over their pages. They now have no choice. I don't like the direction it's going in, but I particularly don't like the "We don't care what you think" attitude. And I don't particularly want LJ to fall over because they've pissed enough people off that all my friends leave. I like this site. I just don't like the way it's being run.

elfwreck explains it better than I could here.

So yeah, for once I'm participating in some activism on the internet. Dunno whether I should be pleased with myself or ashamed, but I'm doing it. Fuck them.

Times for other parts of the world here.
