In Which We Walk Away

This Journal Is Closed. (until further notice?)

No new entries will be made.

At this time, I will not be deleting the journal, so I'll still use it to read my friends pagea and communicate with other users. I, however, strongly encourage you to move to an alternate blogging site. DeadJournal, GreatestJournal, and InsaneJournal are all options.

You can find me on both InsaneJournal, though primarily GreatestJournal under the username wafflexofdoom.

I no longer wish to contribute to a group that ignores its users and feels free to delete journals without notice or discussion.
I've seen a couple posts about the residual issues from Strikethrough but haven't thought they were worth citing here. Now GJ's Fandomtossed and innocence_jihad (a community created against Warriors for Innocence during Strikethrough) are both reporting that a few users have reportedly been suspended for artwork they submitted to pornish_pixies, the Harry Potter fanfic/fanart community.

Instead of strikethrough, deleted journals (ponderosa121 and elaboration are the ones named in the 2 communities) show up bold.

Just thought everyone should know.

For future reference, I can be found on GreatestJournal as wafflexofdoom.

[Edit] I've been posting over at the latest news post, along with a number of other angry members of fandom. I recommend you all do the same, as it is past my bedtime and I have to go to an early lunch AND tea tomorrow. I hope fandom can unite again and that LJ will stop being crackweasels, but I'm losing faith. [\Edit]

Links:
- innocence_jihad post
- GJ's fandomtossed post
- I'm not sure how applicable this is to the situation here, but this article is circulating on some of the communities and discussions, about Contract changes and online companies.

Ironically, I'd just moved my original entries about Strikethrough to my GJ wafflexofdoom journal.

Seriously, LJ--WTF?!?

My Responses so FarCollapse )

Quote Icons Poll

Ok, so I was planning to never update this journal again, but I find myself in a predicament. I am going to make a large quantity of my funny quotes into icons. A number of them I am going to icon even if I'm the only one who finds they're amusing. Others, I am not sure if I want to bother unless other people will enjoy them. The following quotes come from various sources. Please help me decide if they are icon-worthy. (If you have specific requests, comment and I'll let you know if the quote in question is already on my list.) Also, I may be hitting up random people for helpful artwork. Some of them would just be more fun with images.

Please help me out! Thanks!

Quotes and Silly

I came across some random quotes and stuff in my notebook, as well as some that I had forgotten to post. Yays. Oh, not all of them are funny, though.

witty cut hereCollapse )

RE: Strikethrough '07

"I say that you cannot administer a wicked law impartially. You can only destroy, you can only punish. And I warn you, that a wicked law, like cholera, destroys every one it touches. Its upholders as well as its defiers. [...] Can't you understand? That if you take a law like evolution and you make it a crime to teach it in the public schools, tomorrow you can make it a crime to teach it in the private schools? And tomorrow you may make it a crime to read about it. And soon you may ban books and newspapers. And then you may turn Catholic against Protestant, and Protestant against Protestant, and try to foist your own religion upon the mind of man. If you can do one, you can do the other. Because fanaticism and ignorance is forever busy, and needs feeding. And soon, your Honor, with banners flying and with drums beating we'll be marching backward, BACKWARD, through the glorious ages of that Sixteenth Century when bigots burned the man who dared bring enlightenment and intelligence to the human mind!" ~~ Henry Drummond // Clarence Darrow
Ok, so there are a number of people on my f-list who probably don't care about this. Others, like Andrew (hi Andrew) might care just for the sake of what's happening right now. A group calling themselves Warriors for Innocence is cracking down on so-called pedophilia and related crimes on LJ. I, along with most lj users, think pedophilia is wrong. Period. However, a lot of fandom sites are being targeted for fanfiction and such. Also communities like Lolita dicussion groups. Seriously. LJ, I love you. Please stop being so stupid about this. I support the deletion of pedophiliac sites, but I don't agree with all these fan sites being targeted without cause. I know a lot of fanfiction is not to people's tastes. Tentacles, yaoi, abuse, bondage. You have a fetish? It's in fanfiction. There are so many fandom circles that are weird and kinky, but that doesn't make them illegal or in violation of the TOS.

I'm not articulate. So: links! YAY!

1. Warriors for Innocence post

"Things aren't all so tangible and sayable as people would usually have us believe; most experiences are unsayable, they happen in a space that no word has ever entered, and more unsayable than all other things are works of art, those mysterious existences, whose life endures beyond our small transitory life." ~~ Rainer Maria Rilke, tr. Stephen Mitchell

"Shrill notes begin, the grim violin. Then from the silence a violence of sirens orchestrate the score, to which one more corpse is left quiet. How we've become the hollows of drums, the rest between notes and the hollers than ever reach throats..." ~ "Salty Eyes," The Matches

"Poetry is realer than history. History tells you what happened on an occasion. Poetry tells you what happens again and again." ~ John Moore

Tea: the first sip is joy, the second is gladness, the third is serenity, the fourth is madness, and the fifth is ecstasy.
