LJ Content Strike participation poll

Poll #1157234 LJ Content Strike

Will you be participating in the 24 hour LJ Content Strike on Fri 21 March 2008?

Yes, I might even use the time to experience this thing called the "great outdoors" (or I won't be online that day)
Yes, I'm migrating to Insanejournal (or other blog/journal site)
Yes, I'll still be online but will be actively avoiding LJ
What's a content strike and how does it affect me?
No, I don't think it will make a difference.
No, I don't care about the issues behind the strike.
No, nothing will tear me away from my beloved LJ
Other (leave a comment?)
As today is the last day I can post polls, I thought I'd sneak one final one in before my paid account expires.

Tell me what you think!  You can select more than one option from the poll.  

This is a public entry, so you can vote or comment even if you're not on my friends list.

I wont be able to post heheh... I dont think I would post anyways! I think its a bit of a "WAH I GET FREE STUFF HOW DARE YOU CHANGE IT" thing, but at the same time we've been here for a long time. :P

I've had a paid account for the past few years, so I'm not complaining from the 'free stuff' perspective. I don't like the decisions that are being made without consultation or warning (why did they set up community consultation groups if they aren't going to use them?), I don't like the choice to 'hide' interests like sex, bisexual and fanfic from popular interest lists, and I don't like the idea of restricting LJ to a user-pays community, because it will lose a lot of it's colour. I don't like ads, so if I didn't have a paid account I'd hate not being able to choose a basic account instead. I like the choice of paying for extra features, having extra features for free if you view ads or having a basic service for free with no ads. If you reduce these options, you're reducing the pool of people who want to be part of the LJ community, and devaluing everyone's experience.

Rant over.

I can do some LJ stuff from my phone, but won't be on Friday. Distance from computer is no excuse. :)

Fair enough I guess! :P

Indeed! Nice rant.

I am tempted to make another posting quoting Mr Russian Dude and his opinion of all us "consumers", as I don't think enough people followed the link with the big WARNING on it :P

I read that post... it made me angry. I considered signing up for insanejournal, however the site seems to be blocked (or not responding) from work, so I didn't follow through any further.
