Bwuh?

So let me get this straight:

In defiance of a large corporation putting forth policies that fuck over the non-paid users in favour of advertising dollars - something I called as soon as Russia bought into Livejournal - it's users are... striking? A strike?

A strike of paid users, who are already paid and have already given their non-refundable money to Livejournal/Six Apart/SUP, who are not going to post or log in... for ONE DAY?

Am I getting this right?

... Are you people retarded?

Yes, I have opinions on this whole situation. I'll likely post them later. But a strike? Pathetic. If anything, they're dancing in the streets over this! "Yes! They've already paid, but just saved us thousands in bandwidth and storage costs as well! Death to Perestroika~"

You fucking emo-whores are so God damned retarded.

To anyone that wonders my opinion on what's going on with LJ? Bus' answer is mine as well. *nods*

A bunch of basic users too... I think but yes that's what's happening.

I only seen the strike being advertised several dozen times but I kind of fail to see how something like that is going to get the staff's attention, let alone do anything. Oh well.

I will take that into consideration the next time I have a thought about doing something so clearly doomed to fail.

The people saying "I'm letting my paid account run out/turning off automatic payments" were more effective. People who already paid striking for one day isn't gonna strike panic in their hearts, but the loss of profit will.

I doubt paid revenue brings in nearly as much as the ads, though.

I'm damn near willing to place money on that, actually.

Pretty much my idea about it too. They're bitching about it and making sure that omg LJ knows how upset they are, but when it comes down to it, they're still here.

Not to mention that one day won't even be a blip on the radar. It'd have to be, IIRC, a week or so to do any "good."

I've said it before to certain people, I'll say it again. The strike will have no effect. One day of striking isn't going to do any good, particularly since in the grand scheme of things, the lessened bandwidth usage on that day will likely result in a smaller bill for LiveJournal's owners. Think about that.

You really want to protest LiveJournal's latest policies? Go elsewhere and don't come back until they get their shit together. That's how I see it.
