Firstly, let me just give this a resounding WTF?

In other news, this person wants information about traditional Thanksgiving foods. We're all MORE than happy to help... and I managed to get into a flame war about the definition of the word yam.

Well, I tried not to. I said sorry, I pointed out it's my own personal pet peeve (yams! They're African! You can't (easily) get them over here! THEY ARE NOT THE SAME AS SWEET POTATOES!), and I posted a few explanatory links...

but when the person I'm talking to goes "In America we, as Americans, call them yams" I have to point out that I, in fact, have been an American all my life, have lived here all my life, and only see them (mis)labeled "yams" in the supermarket (the same place that sells "wanuts", "peers", and "apels", so I don't take this very seriously) sometimes (probably due to dialectical variation). Most of the time they're labeled "small" and "large" sweet potatoes. And I certainly do not call them yams.

The yam issue is kinda like the robin issue. Settlers from England saw these birds kinda like their robins, didn't see their robins, and so decided to call these new birds "robins" just for the heck of it. Now we distinguish them by calling them "American" robins and "English" robins. Similarly, slaves from Africa saw these tubers kinda like their yams, didn't see their yams, and decided to call these new tubers "yams" for lack of a better term. Which is all well and good until a new wave of immigrants from Africa (and apparently the West Indies) hits and they bring real yams with them! I'd be happy to call them "American" yams and "African" yams (it's not like sweet potatoes are really just "sweet" potatoes either!) but to just use the term "yam" bugs me.

At the last possible second for "see you next week!" that doesn't make people work overtime.

It's pretty much what I expected. LJ made no changes yet, promised to make very few changes "in the next update", and all of a sudden the same people who hours ago were still comparing the recent code change to rape and LJ to a physically abusive partner, who as recently as yesterday were discussing calling the ACLU (see, it's stuff like this that makes me say some people were overreacting just a little bit. Is LJ linking to Facebook really a civil liberties issue?), who for the past week have been passing around DW invite codes like candy (VOX works for everybody, apparently)...

Yeah, these people are all going "YAY! YOU ARE AWESOME! THANK YOU FOR LISTENING!" all over the comments.
conuly: (Default)
Firstly, if anybody is interested in creating a journal at DW, I've culled a lot of codes from old posts. I feel bad for the poor, unused codes! They're not getting any love. *sniff*

And now, three links I got from The Post of Doom, before it, uh, broke.

Facebook won't shut down stalker
LiveJournal integrates Facebook into its website
After Facebook and LiveJournal, Russia buys Twitter

Edit: A last minute link on an alternative to Facebook launching on the 15th.

Which is great. [livejournal.com profile] azurelunatic has a whole post here about the benefits of pingbacks and when you should set them up and the whole point of this all.

However, sadly, she misses the most important reason to enable pingbacks! You should enable pingbacks because the [livejournal.com profile] pingback_bot is super cute. *nodnodnod* It's like having a kitten randomly visit your journal and be friendly, except it's a robot and doesn't say anything other than "Hey, somebody linked to you".

Edit: If you guys all link to this so I can see the cute little pingback bot in my comments (remember, you have to enable it or it won't work!), I'll be thrilled.

Just had it stolen out of the washing machine. (Well, I suppose she could be lying, I certainly don't know, but it harms me not to assume it's the truth.)

Well, I commented offering to send her a pad when I got paid (and I got FIRST POST too, which is always nifty), and then umpetyumpteen people commented after saying the same thing - and she never replied to any of us, which was just great. I mean, here I am with the karma and gold stars of having offered, and I didn't even have to do anything! That just rocked!

Of course, just when I started feeling great about that, she did reply to everybody with her address in a locked post. She got more than enough pads (at least one person sent her a dozen or so!), but I *had* offered, so I went over to [livejournal.com profile] daybreaksadness's etsy shop and bought a "pay it forward" pad for $.20.

So I still got to do an actual good deed, instead of wallowing in intentions, and it didn't cost me much. That's good :)

LIVEJOURNAL IS NOT PEOPLED WITH DOCTORS.

Oh, I'm sure there are doctors here, but none of them can really prove it anyway.

If you or your loved one or your KID is acting funny, and you have the opportunity to post on LJ asking "Gee, should I take him to the doctor?" - stop and think. If the odds are that everybody is going to say yes, get off the computer and head out now.

Repeat the mantra with me now, everybody: WHEN IN DOUBT, CHECK IT OUT.

I'm not saying you should rush to the emergency room on a Friday night just because your precious stubbed her pinky toe - but when you suspect a serious injury or illness just get up and go already. Don't waste valuable time posting on LJ, because your uninsured ass is just going to end up in the hospital anyway, might as well be sooner than later, right?

GOD, people.

And now... it moves a little too slowly for my taste. I'm hopeless!

But I'm going to give myself a few weeks to get used to this slower, gentler pace before I start adding anything new again - and I think I'm going to think a lot more carefully before I add any new comms. Those were the worst offenders, you know. Updating very frequently, but I never read (most) of them!

O NOES! ITS STUPID! SHE SAVED LIVES!

Here's the thing. Unless her school has a rule that states "discipline for breaking school rules shall be suspended (no pun) if, while breaking the rules, the student does something moderately heroic" the fact is they really have no choice but to punish her for skipping school.

Because she was, in fact, skipping school.

Unless her school is set up very oddly, I imagine that the only way to go home before the end of the day is to go to the office and tell them you're sick, and then wait for a parent to either pick you up or tell them to send you home. And she didn't do that. Which means she was skipping school and, yeah, breaking the rules.

And she says she was sick, but I said that all the time. And half the time I just either came home anyway or else never left home to begin with. I didn't "skip school to come home", I did it so I wouldn't have to go to school. I had no real desire to do anything, so I defaulted to going home and watching TV, or reading, or playing video games. (This all assumes she really did intend to go home, of course - she may have meant to just stop at home and pick something up before going out again, or to take the bus near to home and then do something else. Or maybe she was really sick, I don't know.)

"But she did something heroic!"

Yeah, through coincidence. And despite what everybody over there is claiming, she didn't really "choose" to be a hero. She kinda had that choice thrust upon her, as the other choice was "sit here and get seriously injured or killed, along with the driver and all the little kids". Not much of a choice.

"But don't they cancel out????"

No, they don't. They're two unrelated things. "Sure, he robbed a bank - but he gave some of the money to charity!" It doesn't really work that way, or at least, it shouldn't.

Okay, if she'd skipped school for the specific purpose of committing the heroic deed... maybe. "Yeah, he robbed a bank - but he only did it because it was the only way he'd be able to ransom his wife from the nefarious evildoers, and all the rest of the money went to the poor!"

Or if you said the policy was wrong, that the punishment was too much for the crime, okay. But I really fail to see how a day of Saturday detention is really that arduous. I mean, it might be, but... really? It's probably not.

With real world contact info, which I agree will probably be a lot more useful than emails.

(And please - don't harass the support board. I'm not currently doing support, but I have a lot of sympathy for people who can't do anything more than tell you what they've got to tell you, and who have no control over the situation anyway. Just direct your outrage or concern or whatever immediately to the correct people.)

Am I the only person who thinks that 3 am is an unreasonable hour for a baby/toddler (young toddler? Older baby? Whatever) to be awake and playing with people? Is it perfectly sensible to find quiet games to play with the kid at that hour instead of putting her back to sleep? And when asked for quiet games, is it wrong to suggest that maybe, just maybe, the kid needs to sleep more than she needs to have fun? (Not to mention it can't be good for the parents to be up at all hours when they presumably do not have odd sleeping habits by nature.)

Because, frankly, I think the advice (politely stated at first... the person in question doesn't like me, and I feel no need to keep up the pretense) "PUT THE KID BACK TO BED" is eminently better than whatever That Twit was fishing for.

Right here.

In other news, fandom-y journals, especially with "dangerous" content (you know the sort of stuff I mean) are apparently being deleted, so go locky, okay?

On What Just Happened.

(However, all her comments are here, even though the rant is less complete.)

Is any of this true? I don't know, and would really appreciate more information. But it sure is interesting.

Also, if the fandom counting comm struck you as a good idea, you may also be interested in [livejournal.com profile] fandompays.

Edit again: Now there's people talking about buying up lots and lots of SA/LJ stock themselves. I wish them luck, though, again, not sure this is really going to work. It certainly won't work until somebody organizes this shit.

I'm only posting the link so I can also post this quote:

The truth of the matter is that the only person who would value free speech more than the safety of a child is a person who WA LA endangers children. You're all clueless and every single one of these statements prove it.

Have you ever noticed that people who do things you disagree with (or think things you disagree with, but I do agree with the principle that little kids shouldn't be harmed. Hard not to agree with that one) can't spell?

GODDAMMIT YOU TWITS GET IT RIGHT! VOILA! VOILA! IT AIN'T THAT HARD, AND MISSPELLING IT ONLY DESTROYS YOUR CREDIBILITY!

Thank you.

Of course, there are still disturbing comms and individuals on LJ. And any of them dumb enough to put incriminating evidence in their interests have now been warned.

Yar. Here be updates.

I'm maybe-not-literally waiting with bated breath to see which journals are or are not restored.
conuly: (Default)
I'm not saying I understand all the legal talk that's being bandied about, because I don't. And I'm not saying I agree with what LJ's done, because I'm pretty sure I don't. Heck, I don't even think I know most of the story!

But I do understand this:

It's not a first amendment thing. The only people who have to follow the first amendment are the government. The US government. Specifically Congress, but that seems to be interpreted to mean "Any government, no matter how small or municipal, that's part of the US".

And last time I checked, LiveJournal was in no way the government. We don't pay taxes to LiveJournal, and they don't have cops, and we don't even have to pay for our journals. They can make a rule banning purple fonts, and suspending everybody who ever used a purple font, like, ever if they like. It'd be stupid, you know it and I know it, but it's still be legal.

So stop complaining about the first amendment. Complain about freedom of speech or illogic or whatever - but it's not the first amendment.

(Also, hate to burst everybody's bubble, but I really don't think that the petitions and machinegun commenting plans are going to work. Do they ever? You can spend your energy and time however you like, I guess, but... *shrugs*)
conuly: (Default)
Here's the first bit.
And here's an explanation.

I'd just advise everybody to take whatever precautions, from nothing to full-on-paranoia, that they think is necessary to protect their own journals.

Heh.

Give somebody a FAQ link, and they go ahead, read it, and delete their post! Another happy customer!

(And people say I'm not helpful. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk some more.)

Instead of giving a man on fire (and warming him for a day), I have set the man on fire, thereby keeping him warm the rest of his life. Take that, you doubters!

(With luck, she'll also take my advice about shutting up so it can all blow over. That really *is* good advice, and a better course of action than telling us how mean most (but not all) of us really were, and pointedly thanking the few non-mean people. Which didn't include me. I'll survive. Hey, maybe she'll go tell Elise how horrible I am! There's a bright side! She might even start a site! I should make a few typos, make it official....)

...that does not mean you can discount the advice as though it was worthless. Nor does it mean you should delete the comments in a snit because it's not the advice you wanted.

If anybody knows somebody approximately her age (13), you can point them her way. She writes well enough, but... well... she's still 13. I'd say more, but she's reading over my shoulder.

1. I don't like chicken & broccoli. I mean, I love broccoli, and I can tolerate chicken if it's spiced so much it no longer tastes like chicken (or if I'm allowed to suck the marrow out of the bones....), but I don't like the meal "chicken and broccoli".

2. I know waaaaaaay too many pregnant people. Online, offline, I don't know - what the fuck have you all been doing lately??? (This question is rhetorical, for obvious reasons.)

Seriously, I'm happy for everybody doing things that make them happy, but... sheesh!

3. I lived without a bathroom sink for, um, about a decade? That's why it's such momentous news, by the way.

4. No, actually, we *had* a bathroom sink, it just didn't drain, so we used it as a surface. Same difference.

5. TMI - period related )

6. I'm not very interesting. Alas.

7. If I ruled the world, I'd actually probably panic and move to Mars.

8. I love the holidays. ANY holidays. I love holiday music, and holiday foods, and holiday decorations, and every aspect of holidays.

9. I most love the icons I hardly ever use. It just works out that way.

Well, that was mildly amusing. I shouldn't bother engaging them, I know, but I've been good... more or less... for a few months (I think), so... yeah.

You'll note that she's probably right - I've never once really heard anybody get offended at being told "Merry Christmas". Even the most die-hard non-Christians I know usually just roll their eyes and accept the greeting in the spirit in which it was given. As that's the case, why the heck can't these twits do the same thing?

Save your indignation for things that really matter, guys. Oh, hey, did you know that there's, like, a war or ten going on right now? There are people starving to death, and going hungry in this very country. There really are Christians in this world who are being persecuted, if that's what matters to you - though not many of them happen to live in this country. For that matter, there are honestly people in this world who really have never heard of Jesus - not many of them live in the US either. And what with the usual outbreaks of war, famine, pestilence, and death all over everywhere, why don't you do the rest of us a favor and go shove that Christian love and charity at somebody who could really use the help. I can name a few places.

Of course, here I am being all hypocritical and all, but man, this sort of stuff irritates me no end! All I want for Christmas is the right to greet people in the manner I see fit, preferably without starting the next world war. And I'm thinking that shouldn't be too much to ask.

Maybe it's just me, I don't know, but was it really worth that whole thread (not to mention this entire pointless entry)?

I didn't think so.

Let's be clear. The fare in this city for public transportation is $2. Alternatively, you can purchase and use an unlimited Metrocard.

If you do not pay the fare (or don't use the unlimited) prior to using public transportation, you are breaking the law.

When caught, that's tough. Nobody really cares how much you whine about how unfair you were treated. Nobody cares that "Well, everybody else is doing that!" That argument didn't work back in the sixth grade, and it doesn't work now.

There are some times when it makes sense to break the law. We can all think of various examples. But... 1. When you have the ability to pay your fare and don't, that doesn't make sense and 2. Whether or not you had a good reason for breaking the law, nobody wants to hear you whining when you get caught. That's seriously annoying.

So, in short - either pay your damn fare or shut up about it.

Thank you.

Three comments before I moved into an outright kinda-flame. I guess maybe I'm the one having the bad day, huh?

For the record, children under a year definitely aren't capable of manipulating others. It's got nothing to do with intelligence - some of the smartest people I know can't manipulate others! And some of the smartest people I know are babies! It makes a neat little Venn diagram, meeting in the middle for a small slice of the population in both groups!

Did you know you still maintain [livejournal.com profile] brooklyn_usa?

I'm about to contact another maintainer to ask about advertising the newly minted [livejournal.com profile] nyckids there, in a semi-discreet fashion. Unless you figure nobody else'll mind.

Edit: You're also the sole maintainer of [livejournal.com profile] frugal_ny. Hey, can I advertise in there? I'm hoping to mostly get people posting about free or cheap kid's things in the new comm, so it's kinda appropriate....

(And yes, for the rest of you, this constitutes the obligatory ad on my journal.)

Edit: It's truly amazing how many people I know who maintain comms. Stej, what about me spamming [livejournal.com profile] new_to_nyc, whose members could surely use information about child-related things in the city?

Isn't there a parable about this? Something about how the laborer is worthy of his hire?

A guy wanting to bring in his harvest hired people in the morning to help him, but when he saw he didn't have enough people he went back in the afternoon to hire more people to help him, and when that still wasn't enough he went back a few hours later for still more people - and then paid everybody the same flat wage, right?

And Jesus' response was pretty much "Yeah, it's unfair, suck it up", right?

Something like that*.

Of course, Jesus wasn't talking about LiveJournal, I think he was talking about Heaven, but the point still remains. If you buy a t-shirt for $25, and the very next day it goes on sale for $5, yeah, that sucks, but you're not going to whine that the store cheated you.

Well, probably. I may be overestimating the sense of the average LiveJournal user here. This isn't even the same thing! It's like if the store started selling cheap knock-offs for $5.

Oh, I don't think the solution is all that bad. I don't *like* it, but I understand the need to support oneself. What's going to be bad is every user in the world whining that they don't like ads, so why do they have to see them. Plus, of course, the concept of ads on LiveJournal. Ugh.

I continue to think that LiveJournal could make a bundle selling features individually, so long as you had to pay a certain amount up-front. So, say, you couldn't buy two months of an extra 10 (or 50, or 100) userpics as a free user, you'd have to buy a whole year's worth. (That was the problem that was explained to me before, right, that for small amounts of money it would cost more than it'd earn?)

If you don't like it, don't like it *constructively* because she's my foster sister and I love her. And also because she's a beginner and restricted to Paint, though I believe that need not kill her icon ambitions...?

On the subject of icons, I've recently noticed that my sister [livejournal.com profile] gingembre has only one icon!

This is simply unacceptable.

At the very least, she needs an icon of her two kids. I'll post pictures soon as I can get them scanned in. Then I want icons. Scroll her interests list. If you can find some icons that match up with her interests, feel free to post 'em here, yours or not (so long as they're free to use!). She also likes the same books I like - Diane Duane, Donna Andrews, Hilari Bell (duh), Diana Wynne Jones, Tamora Pierce, Terry Pratchett, you know the sort. Right now we've been reading the Foundation books. *thinks* And she likes Mrs. Pollifax and Aunt Dimity books. And... um... *ponders*

Oh, yes, and she's a Scooby and PowerPuff Girls afficionado. And she presumably will still take anything that's Miss Piggy or Miss Piggy & Kermit related.

Or random stuff, any icons you really like. I am *determined* to get that girl using more than just the one, even if she never actually uses them.

Using this link because it mentions MOI!

I'm in. I think.

I won a trophy for a poem once, in the third grade. I'm still irked, I don't think the teacher had any right to enter me in a contest without even telling me (much less asking my permission). I wouldn't've let her.

Still got the poem sitting by my bed. Well, I say "still", but really I only found it again a few months ago, and stuck it there because it was a place I knew it wouldn't get lost.

We were supposed to use metaphors, and I went a bit overboard. I was one morbid little kid!

The woman's house is, as near as I can tell, stuffed with food (but she's buying more because she doesn't want to go without). She's convinced her appliances are broken, and worried about how clean they are.

Whatever's going on here, it's not stupidity. In fact, in my extremely unprofessional opinion, I agree with every other person there saying "Yup, probably OCD" (or possibly the person saying early Alzheimer's).

But, while the replies from the OP indicate that it's not insensitive of us to mock this woman (her own relative!) for being stupid, it's terribly insensitive for us to suggest that she's not just "quirky" but might possibly have an actual problem! After all, she's seen professionals and gotten help and there's Just Nothing Wrong. (Isn't seeing professionals about what I can only imagine is this exact problem (though it's hard to tell with the vagueness) a sign that it's not sheer stupidity?)

I hate people.

(Not, of course, that I think it's proper to give people actual diagnoses over the internet, especially when you aren't in any way certified. However, really, in this case I'd say the symptoms just scream at you.)

Edit: Post's been deleted. I *think* it's been deleted by the OP, not by the maintainer-of-the-comm (who also is the moderator - I'm still not sure why she approved it.)

To clarify, *every* comment (except those replies by the OP, who was outraged that we thought her mother-in-law wasn't merely "mockably stupid") said that the woman had some sort of Absolutely Not Funny problem. Most people said OCD. One person said early Alzheimer's. One person started a small subthread on hunger-in-childhood (specifically growing up in the depression) leading to food hoarding in later life. That's how obvious it seemed to everyone.

I opted not to get comment emails because I hate checking my email. Such a pain. To me, it's easier to use the comments page than to check my email. For conversations in other journals, I figure that if I can't even remember where I'm holding a conversation, the conversation simply isn't that important to me. (This saves me so much stress in the long run, it is not to be believed).

That said, a few people commented that I should use a program that automatically informs me when I have new mail.

That's not a bad idea, except for the "automatically informs me when I have new mail" part. I sometimes go weeks, or even months without checking my email because I'm avoiding one particular person (or mail). I don't generally go on AIM because too many people found out about my AIM name (for most of the world, I tried to pretend I didn't have one), and because even when it was limited to a few people I personally picked, it was too stressful. I don't like getting a message and feeling like I have to answer it. With email, at least I don't know when I got it, so I can pretend I didn't see it if I saw it. Same with the recent comments page, even when I do know that I got it.

So, thanks, but I think I'll pass and use my method. I don't use it entirely to be haughty about it when problems happen. Mostly I use it because it's better than the alternatives, at least for me.

I can't reply to everyone, because... well, because typing the last post took a lot more effort than I'd realized it would when I started. And every reply I want to make ends up wanting to talk on the same subject, and that's more than I can give right now.

Besides, I can't very well talk about the argument in [livejournal.com profile] autism because I just have to stay away from there. Forget about helping people - I'm getting pissed, and my comments show it. And this is an issue too important mihi to do that. I've always gotten irritated at people who let being right come before doing right - mostly because I'm one of those people, and it's really counterproductive.

So I need to just back out of that discussion until I can be calm, reasonable, and *not* want to smack everyone there until they Stop Being Stupid. That might take a while.
