LJ meme

LJ meme from frala:

Number of journal entries: 1,350

Number of people on your friends list: 141

Person who introduced you to LJ: Err, robi0688, sort of? I wanted to buy her a paid account and couldn't figure out a way to do it without having an LJ account of my own so I made one.

Still friends with this person: Yes! :D

How many people have you introduced to LJ: 6 or 7.

List everyone on your friends list who you have met in person: caitlin, caredhel, celticwarrior82, eggpuff, flanneryflyer, freekybitz, gottalooksharp, hew, hockeynikita, imwithstrud, lastcatastrophe, mye, pennyann, redden6, seachanges, tamiflu, tattermuffin, templeempress, tersa, x_jerseygirl.

Total LJers met: Err, the above plus another 10-15 people?

Five people on LiveJournal that you have known the longest: Well, hew and mye are my sisters, so I'm going to ignore them. :P eggpuff, frala, lastcatastrophe, tamiflu, almightychrissy. And the rest of the HD gang too!

Anyone on LJ you can't stand: Sure! :P

Name one person on your friends list you would most like to meet: I don't want to meet any of you freaks! I mean, there are too many of you to choose from.

Ever ban someone from commenting in your journal: No.

Number of comments: Posted: 13,987 - Received: 14,512

Biggest pet peeve about LJ: A peeve about LJ itself, or the way people use it?

For the first, I'm annoyed by how unprofessional the company is about introducing new features. They go whee! I'm going to add this, this is going to be so cool!!! And then don't test it adequately and it either breaks LJ immediately or results in massive slowdowns and/or both. This is a service that people pay money for, not your high school project, dudes.

For the second, I hate the whole scenario where someone has a real problem/flaw (shitty writer, dangerously overweight, etc.) and then makes a "woe is me" post without any indication that they're trying to improve or change things for the better and then a flood of people comment with YOU ARE AWESOME AND NOTHING IS WRONG WITH YOU!!! and they're all totally lying, but just do it because they want to seem supportive and feel good about themselves because they think that's what the person wants to hear.

Do you feel close to most of the people on your friends list: I have 141 people on my friends list, so of course not.

How many journals on LiveJournal do you have: 1 and 1 "borrowed" from littlestclouds. *wink*

Your LJ pet peeves are mine. Although I think I've probably done number two (. . . wait) it annoys me and I can't stand people who only whine and complain about how much their life sucks, and then refuse to do anything about it, and choose to either wallow in how horrible things are, or continue to enable the shitty/bad/lame/stupid/etc. things to continue.

/rant

:P

I don't really mind the whining (because that's kind of what LJ is for), but it's the combination with people being untruthful (or maybe they really do have taste that terrible? Horrors!) and reassuring them they're fantastic and wonderful and lovely in a situation where they aren't that irks me.

I guess if it's really annoying I just skip, but I really get irked when someone is like, "Here's what's not working. Here's how I could fix it. Let me continue to refuse to fix it!" :P

And I forgot one more, "AND LET ME CONTINUE TO WHINE ABOUT HOW IT'S NOT WORKING!"

And wait, which community? I don't remember that. :P

It's not a community, it's yoga/surfer boy. :P

Oh, right, I don't really consider him a community, but one of the definitons of community is b. Sharing, participation, and fellowship. and that kind of counts for him too, so it works! :p

It doesn't say community, though, just how many journals.

I so agree with your pet peeves too about LJ itself and the fact that some comments come back to me in my bulk/spam box and not the regular in box like they should.


Oh, that's annoying. Actually, sometimes comments just don't get sent at all, don't they? That's happened very rarely to me but I see complaints about that fairly regularly on my friends list.

I have heard that happens too, one person just posted about the this week about not getting any at all. It hasn't happened to me, yet*knock on wood*

I MESS the old HD gang so Fin much some times... there is NOT enough of cute hocky boys loving each other(written well!) on the internet!

LOL I said MESS instead of MISS *dorks* yes they were alas good times can't last for ever!

I so thought you said you met Chrissy and was momentarly all 'wtf she never told me that' ahahaha

*giggle* Meeting Chrissy would be cool!

it would be!! :D clearly enough to make me all flaily and wtf-ey hahaha
