I had great sushi today because of LJ! aka one reason amongst many why I'm NOT leaving.  
Okay, I know it's likely odd to some of you that I'm attempting to be the voice of positivity here, but deal with it.

I'm not saying I don't find this appalling; I do. However, I think that the continued bitching about it isn't going to accomplish anything, and as I said in the subject line, I'm not leaving. Boycott as you like; don't give them any more money and see what happens. Maybe something will - I haven't got a clue. I'm not a lawyer and I'll leave it to those who are to weigh in on all of that. I have a perm account, and even if I didn't, I still wouldn't leave because of the things I LIKE here. Things like:

- Communities for fandoms of ALL kinds (they're not all gone, and yes, I don't agree with some of the deletions, but again... we've been over this)
- Communities so I can get the quickest news about HP, 30STM, icons, or whatever the hell else might catch my fancy
- Communities for my new area so I can ask about the best sushi restaurants
- Being able to easily keep in touch with friends all over the world
- Playing in my RPG, which is entirely on LJ

Now, I'm sure that others can come up with other things that they enjoy about LJ, and the reasons they'd stay. What are your reasons?

Feel free to pimp this post out if you'd like, but if you want to be negative or tell me that I'm sticking my head in the sand, you'll be shown the proverbial door. You can call me Pollyanna, but you can't call me stupid. I think that we need to focus on the positive, people. You probably won't hear me this positive again in, oh, a zillion years, so I suggest running with it while you can. :P
Where am I?: OC
I feel: cheerfulNot letting go
I hear: Incubus - Dig

commence rambling here.
Agreed. Everyone is up in arms, and maybe it's because I'm tired or I've just finished fighting with my boyfriend and am now in a peaceful mood, but while there is reason to be up in arms, I think some of the animosity towards LJ is uncalled for.

I'm sure I'll regret saying that as I'm sure 9287432 people will jump on me for not wanting to be loud-and-proud for my Ginny/Percy fetish, and I don't feel like defending myself tonight, but LJ is handling it the best they can. If you don't feel that they are, take your business elsewhere, it's your right. But I'm not thoroughly dissatisfied with my LJ service; I use it for other things besides fandom, so stop demanding that I leave just because I like to on occasion read slash.

Katsu-Ya. In studio City and Brentwood. And Izaka-Ya in We-Ho ( West hollywood). Owned by the same company. Food is BANGING!

I feel so old *g* As though, I don't know... I've been through so much on LJ that I can't help but believe that it'll pass over and things will work themselves out, and that nothing is ever solved by people threatening to leave. I love seeing the posts on my LJ that are intelligent and 100% the deletion of the fandom journals - that's the spirit I love about LJ.

Okay, is this it? Because...TOLDJA SO! Except for the sushi bit. I don't like sushi.

Am staying because I really don't think that we have created here can be re-created anywhere else. Something will be lost along the way. Just a feeling.

Very nice. I am not leaving myself. Why? because Livejournal gave us a voice, and I firmly believe in using that voice- even if it means as a weapon against 6A.
