To everyone who's been discussing the opening of LJ's fandom culture to FB and Twitter via the link options, I would like you to read what [livejournal.com profile] pir8fancier is saying in this post, and think about it carefully.

I'm not against fandom co-existing in other blogspheres, and I certainly don't think LJ is the main creative center of fandom.

I do, however, think LJ is one of the main cores of fandom, and it's that for a reason. It's the same reason why people have fought against TOS changes, and why other cores have the same spirit as LJ's fandom does: It's a loose environment. Yes, we have to warn for explicit content, and yes, we have to make sure LJ is (and by extent, we are) exempt of legal repercussions if underage people get access to this kind of content. And yes, we are oftentimes exposed to some very nasty actions caused by fellow fandomers.

But Facebook especially is not a place where a fandom can truly exist. Twitter is a gray zone of blogging, but FB is not. It has a TOS that aggressively attacks its users' privacy, no matter how many times the media and users retaliate. It's an incredibly overexposed environment, even if one locks their own information. I'm not saying this is not a similar case on LJ, but I am saying that LJ is a fandom blogsphere, and FB is emphatically NOT.

And this is why interconnecting the two should not happen, in my opinion.

Now, if you want to connect LJ and, say, TwoP, we can discuss that heartily.

Is there any way to terminate the batshit insane, stalkery hub of EVIL otherwise known as the spn_gossip community?

ETA: You know what? Nevermind. I just hope Jared gets his lawyers to go after them, at this point.

ETA 2: Aaaaaand now apparently we have Clif involved too, bitching back at the crazies. Supernatural, the only fandom where even the bodyguard wanks online.

So today I turn a quarter century old. I'm quite alright with it, if you're wondering. I couldn't remember if I've had good birthdays this last decade, and this morning I woke up, remembering my last one was pretty fucking awesome. SO. Whatever circling the spirit world, make my birthday JUST AS AWESOME, or I swear I'll end up with a face like this:



(truest statement EVER, innit?)

Why yes, I am Jewish! :D

LOVE!

ETA: LIVEJOURNAL, STOP SUCKING ON MY BIRTHDAY. I'M TURNING INTO CASTIEL.

So, flist, I ask you.

Is it worth it?

I mean, I saw the website, and I don't deny it looks shiny. But are you really going to do the crossposting thing from now on in all seriousness? How much of fandom is moving to DW-only posts? In my experience, whenever we stumble upon the shiny LJ websites, a big wave starts and then it dies down just as quickly, when people realize it really is far simpler to just post to LJ.

However, if this really is the real deal with the whole fandom move thing (and I don't deny that LJ has become a place of much suck in the last couple of years), I'll gladly whore myself out for an invite code. :)

I'm loony_moony on InsaneJournal too.

Also, I recommend LJArchive to save your journal. It's a decent software that does the job.

(In case you haven't heard, LJ could be finished, after the Russian mafia dropped it)

(ETA: Not dropped, apparently. Just ALTERED TO THEIR CONVENIENCE. How lovely)
