That 'Your turn' thing.  
I've been busy at work all day and wasn't able to read LJ until I came home. And what do I find all over my friends page? Nasty statements, the inability to comment and ask "WTF?" and all with the subject line "Your turn." Well, you all suck.

These were the "instructions" from the person who started this thing (I won't say who it was - that person can out themselves if they wish):

Let's start a cryptic post meme!

The rules:

Post must be public.
Post must have the subject: Your turn.
Post must be one-line only (and CRYPTIC).
Post must have comments off.

Now, in and of itself, this might not be so bad, except the majority of the people I saw do this apparently took "cryptic" to mean "nasty" or "rude." Certainly it isn't the fault of the person who started it; perhaps they didn't mean it to turn out this way. But here we are.

So out of my annoyance at the general negativity on my friends list, I would like to see something positive happen. If you want to do a meme, do this:

The rules:

Post must be public.
Post must have the subject: SOME LOVE!
Post can be as long as you want, open and honest.
Post should be about someone in your life who you think is wonderful.
Post can have comments on or off, depending on how bashful you feel about telling someone that they're wonderful.

Off you go, then! Spread SOME LOVE! >:D<

I realize I am negative at times too, but sheesh. Mass negativity BAD.
I feel: annoyedannoyed

What're you apologizing for? Yours wasn't nasty!

That's why I purposely kept mine non-negative. Not sure it was positive, exactly, but I don't think it was negative.

I liked yours! Kissing good!

Dude, I found the vast majority of the ones I saw on my friends list to be hilarious. I didn't see any real vein of negativity--in some, yeah, but not enough to matter to me, at least. And somebody even asked me if cryptic meant "negative" and I told them no way.

So, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it and seemed to be hurt by it--that wasn't its intent at all. I just meant it to be a fun, creative parody of all the posts that *are* serious. It was just a chance to poke fun of ourselves.

I wasn't hurt - more annoyed, plus I felt sorry for those who didn't know what was going on. But to give you some negative ones:

What a letdown.
as long as we're together we can only be misery.
It was never very much fun anyway.
Some people should learn to shut the fuck up.

I find it hard to see those as anything but negative. In any case, I knew it had nothing to do with your intentions, so no worries.
