IDEK what is going on, bbs, but my ankle is puffier than Motley Crue's hair.

Went for lunch at Big Blue with Carmen, then walked around the West End's fine delis, bought some cheese. It was all very exciting, as you can see.

BUT REALLY, WHAT I WANT IS SOME AMERICAN IDOL FIC WHERE IT IS LIKE OCEANS 11 BUT COWELLS 11 OR SOMETHING YOU KNOW YOU WANT IT. ADAM IS GEORGE CLOONEY'S CHARACTER, Y/Y?

Also I have the urge to write het!fic for Scott, or like, the strangest, lulziest slash EVER with him.

[profile] kirana_44, your boss is a dick, hope you find a new and better job soon.

[profile] heynderyckx : your geek love fantasy is so PERFECT.  It is like how I want to marry a hot anthropology geek. I have a major crush on Blair Sandburg, obvs.

Thank goodness, it looks like [personal profile] jameth  lost the advisory board election. I was kind of made aware of the situation by a post of [personal profile] astolat's, but I also saw this post by a [community profile] metafandom mod , which linked to this one and immediately went over and voted for [community profile] legomymalfoy.

Finally that kickass bitch Jessica Valenti tells it like it is in the Friday Feminist Fuck You:

  • A group called Warriors for Innocence are searching Lj's and comms by interest. I assume they use keywords like 'rape' or 'incest'. You can read Liz Marcs for more info on the group, its aims and its policy. I would advise against directly linking to their site, as one person (whose comment I can't find) suggested they are using backtrack, and I believe this is possible. ETA: Liz has received another letter from the organisation, where they claim they did not intentionally target fandom.
  • The group then reports the lj or comm to Lj abuse, who permanently delete or suspend the account in question. [personal profile] jamoche  is collecting a list, on which comments are anonymous and screened. [personal profile] lolaraincoat  is also keeping track of deleted comms. [personal profile] catrinella  also has a fairly detailed post on the subject.
  • Several people such as [personal profile] liviapenn  are warning fen to be careful about their interests. 'fiction' is okay, 'crazy spacecest' is probably not.
  • If you are worried about bahleetion, you can backup your lj at l jarchive (thanks to [personal profile] seperis  for the link)
  • It's probably a good idea to keep an eye on [profile] fandom_lawyers
  • [personal profile] femmequixotic has a good post which explains her experience with Lj abuse, and asks that people not blame them for the current kerfuffle. I have to say I agree, they're in a bit of a bind.
  • ETA: [personal profile] dorrie6 has started a Greatest Journal comm for the discussion of the issue, and its here
  • ETA 2: [personal profile] cordelia_v has a post on what we can do to push back at SixApart here

That's what I've got so far, folks.  Personally I'm with the 'WTF?' exclamations which can be heard on flists all over lj. I'm also with the slight paranoia, though.  All my entries from January back to 1999 have been flocked, which you can do en masse if you have a paid account.  If you're not on the flist and want added, or have more links for me, you can e-mail me at rudhoreiel@gmail.com or comment  here.
