For those of you who don't already know, there has been a strike scheduled for Friday, March 21st, 2008, during which we hope to have many members of LiveJournal provide LJ with absolutely no content for twenty-four hours. This means no posting and no commenting. If you post elsewhere and have it set up to be posted through a feed on LiveJournal, don't do it. Stay away from LiveJournal for twenty-four hours. That can't be too hard, can it? I know some of you are probably quite active on LiveJournal and will find it hard to stay away for an entire day, just as I will, but this is something that needs to be done, to show the people running LiveJournal that we're watching the changes they are making, that we're paying attention, that we're discontent, and that we want to be heard and taken in to consideration. We are not simply users who can be tossed to the side and ignored. We are the people who make up LiveJournal. Without us, without the content we create, without our words, our voices, our creativity, our participation, there would be no LiveJournal. This is a fact, and it needs to be realized and understood and then taken in to consideration when making decisions regarding the way that LiveJournal is run. The strike is only a few days away, so there isn't all too much time to prepare. While this is unfortunate, it isn't enough to keep this strike from taking place. It will take place, the second it is meant to, and it would be best to have as many people take part as possible. Please, spread the word. Spread it fast. There are only a few days to organize this. If you find that you care about LiveJournal or care about the people you interact with on LiveJournal or simply want it to remain a place where you can entertain yourself without constant censorship and money-hungry practices being thrown in without the consideration of those who use the service, act now. If you don't wish to spread the word, that is fine, but please: refrain from using LiveJournal on Friday, March 21st. Do something else for a change. It's for a good cause. (:

For background on this strike and why it is being held, please read the following posts:

To find out exactly when the strike begins and ends, depending on where you are located, please see this:

What's this about?

* It's about free and ad-free LiveJournal accounts being abolished for new members, ignoring the advice from the newly-formed Advisory Board.
* It's about LJ staff trying to sneak this decision in under the radar, and when people found out, telling the users it was done 'to make the signup process less confusing'.
* It's about LJ staff failing to apologize for trying to hide the facts from view and for lying about the actual reasons for their actions.
* And finally, it's about the latest decision to hide certain user interests from the list of Most Popular Interests, some of them being fanfiction, bisexuality, lesbianism, sex and depression. This decision was not announced or explained in any way. Users found out for themselves.

Today I was looking around the net like I always do when I found myself at Facebook.com. I had an invitation to join a group in protest to the Phelps Family with the Westboro Baptist Church from being at the funerals of the victims of the VA Tech shootings. For those who do not know who this family is they are the family that pickets the funerals of dead soldiers... and well anything they believe to be against God... Even other churches. This hurt my heart so badly that I had to look at their website and see just what this stupid little group was all about. Their website is called www.godhatesfags.com That right there should tell anyone that these people are crazy. But to read further into their site is just all out heart breaking.

This entry is all about This family... and how it made me feel. Please read what I have to say. Please watch the video I have found and please sign the petition to keep them from being anywhere near those funerals.

I would like to first start off with how they do not answer any question with a just answer... I have chosen 3 out of many FAQ from their site that I find should be asked... but are never answered.
3 FAQCollapse )
So please tell me were the answers were in any of those...

My Next part is about the family who do these picketing....
The FamilyCollapse )
And do they not get it that if it wasn't for the men and women now and the ones before them that they would not have the freedom they have today to stand out there and do what they do. No because they do not care... they have their freedom... and you do you know what I think?

I think that if those men who died for our freedom many times throughout time could see these people and how they speak out against them... or if they could only see how our country abuses the power of our freedom... I think they would still fight for that freedom in the first place. The men and women that die for this country aren't fighting so that a man can sleep with another man... they are fighting for the freedom to do so. They are fighting for the freedom of all the people in this country... even the Phelps... and I hope that one day they will see this... because now all they are doing by hating is saving their own place in hell.

Goodbye Ohio Hello Boston [Oct. 4th, 2006|11:25 pm]
So I am moving to boston. I am leaving Akron and Ohio for as long as I can. My brother is letting me living with him... which is cool.

I am kind of scared but then again I am leaving behind everything I know and care about
But I am also leaving everything that hurts me or reminds me of the pain...

So Goodbye Ohio
