So, did it feel good to not use LJ for a little bit.
Gotta say, I didn't feel any different, my Internet addiction just wet to different avenues.

the majority of my f-list participated whether it was consciously or not I couldn't say, but most of the communities didn't participate, which eh, kind of sucks since a huge amount of content and influence comes from the comm's and not individual users and such.
I really like LJ and I don't want to leave, the platform is convenient and fun, the networking done here is by far superior to MySpace and Facebook, in my opinion.
My paid account expires on the 14th on May (my birthday, duh) and I don't want to regress into a Plus account in which my LJ will be swarming with ads to do with things that what I write about would be significant.

Anyway, there were a few things worth blogging about, but they happened on Thursday and were properly resolved and on Friday when going out for Friday night supper was somewhat irritating due to constant racial slurs but people who say "I'm not racist, I love the black man" - when he's your gardener, quite obviously.
And Right Wing people who try to convince me that a vote for a fringe part is a Throw Away vote. Not it's not, it's voting for my principals.
Any way it was a really irritating evening, but at least I got to hang out with friends and Purim accessories.

Purim really washed over me this year - probably because I've come to associate Purim very strongly with terror attacks and there were only warnings this year with no actual explosions, shootings or kidnappings, there is however until Monday for a terror attack to be disconnected from the Holiday, so we'll see.
I mean yeah, I went all Ester and Vashti are ancient feminist icons (for different reasons obviously) and I went to Uni with butterfly antenes in order to get into the mood, on Wedensday, which is all before Purim, so nyah.

Pretty boring all in all.

Here's a pic which as [ profile] sabotabby said should be spread throughout the intertubes.

Wouldn't it make an excellent t-shirt?!

What an interesting development concerning the content strike.

It would seem us users, customers and consumers aren't being completely ignored after all.

For more information on the content strike go to the Fox's Den

Most of you know about the whole Basic account and Interests Fiasco.

I too will be striking on the 21st of March and maybe actually do something worth while to celebrate Purim and the Equinox.

For details on the strike check out [ profile] beckyzoole's information posts: First and Second.

Do join in, as consumers we do have a say.
And as bloggers it is our responsibility to do so.

Here's the actual notice which I also urge you to spread:


For one day, Friday, March 21, make no posts. Make no comments. Let there be NO new content added to LJ.

SUP obviously does not realize that Basic users have given something of value to them, that it is content that drives the site.

So, for one 24-hour period, from midnight
GMT to midnight GMT
, let's see how many people we can get to pledge to contribute NO CONTENT.

This will create a permanent downward spike in the daily-posts statistics, a permanent reminder of the power of the userbase.

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
