Notice how he just kinda slides that mention of his deep Christian faith in there. I don't know why he bothers. The people who think he's secretly Satan-worshipping Muslim aren't going to believe him anyway - and the real problem is that these folks have this idiotic idea that it matters.

You know, the original words to that jingle said that "better coffee Rockefeller's money can't buy". My mother all of a sudden remembered that a few years ago, and talked about it for three days.
conuly: Quote: "You only wish you were as cool as I am" (cool)
All through the past twelve days or so, I've been sharing those invite codes I carefully collated, mostly just for the heck of it, not because I really feel that deeply about one site over another, and partly because I was - and still am - upset at the serious lack of communication going on.

Of course, I still read comments and my friends page primarily on LJ for the same reason everybody else does - that's where everybody is. I'm aware that this is a self-fulfillingly vicious circle, but it is what it is. I don't know of any way to syndicate my whole friends list over to DW and be able to read FLocked posts from here, and that's, you know, a bit of a big issue. (Especially since very few of you replied that you have accounts here you actively use.)

And you're never going to convince people to move over to Dreamwidth because nobody's here and you can't import communities in their entirety (probably just as well, do we WANT ONTD?), and so most arguments are "Well, LJ management sucks", to which there's no argument, but seriously?

At any rate, here's the thing. I check my comments through the recent comments page on LJ, and I've, uh, recently started doing that on Dreamwidth as well. And do you know what I noticed? What really irks me? On Dreamwidth, on the recent comments page, if there's a reply to a comment I've made there's a little asterisk to let me know.

You know, it's little things like that. Why don't people say things like "Well, Dreamwidth has a higher character limit for entries and comments" or "Well, Dreamwidth has these nifty cut tags that let you view cuts in the same page you're already on" or "Well, Dreamwidth has enabled you to make a poll that lets people pick, say, three out of five choices"? Why it it just "LJ management sucks", all the time?
