Hey I know there's very few people on my flist but since I know you girls like your fanfiction I'm gonna warn ya. Especially you Vivian, though I'm sure you've already taken steps to protect yourself. I hope the PoT community is battening down the hatches so to speak, since the HP fandom got hit.
Quick recap of what's been happening. A group of people, Warriors of Innocence, made a large public claim against livejournal. To remove the journals advocating child molestation or they were going to their ad sponsors. LJ at first defended us saying that as long as no crime had taken place they were powerless to stop the speech of it's users. This group got LJ's back against a wall and now they've deleted communities that have things like incest, chan, shota, slash, rape, noncon, and other things in their interests. Many were writing communities that were breaking no rules in WRITING works of FICTION on these subjects. One pornish_pixies was a four year old fanwork archive. Lolita also came up and one spanish site discussing the book has been deleted. So to my jrock fans spread the word to change your favorites. So p;lease edit your favorites and place freedom_of_speech or other similarly worded interests.
Many are trying to find a legal leg to stand on, however I feel a financial protest will be our best bet. Also change down to a basic non-ad supported accout and tell them why when you add to their comments of why you've changed to an unsupported account. Money is the only thing that talks. If you have a paid account call the company and talk to sales explaining why you won't be renewing. I'm thinking of starting Greatest Journal.
So you know how I've been really stressed over the fact that ACEN doesn't seem to know about our registration. I finally got an answer. It's from an assistant head that was brought over from Panel programming.
Here's my pm to her.
So went and watched the Turtle movie as a pressie from my brother. YAY!!!! This movie was so gay it wasn't Leo/Raph undertones.. oh no it was blatantly obvious they'll be having sex tonight bitches!!
As you can imagine I'm very happy. I'm geeking out right now and while the movie had a few plot holes that you could drive mack trucks through all in all it was a decent flick.
I only have two complaints Splinter's voice which grates on you whenever the rodent speaks.
... Though hearing Splinter say he needs to watch his stories and them being soap operas was pretty damn entertaining. The second is when the hell did April Oneil become a ninja?!?
WTF? Suddenly she's a good enough ninja to take on Karai and hit her? Karai took over for Shredder she's a match for Leo, since when did the Reporter possess leet ninja skills? Huh? The what? Two years that we've not seen them she's become a Mary Sue?
My brother would like to add there should of been more Donny. And where the fuck have the monsters been for 3000 years? I'm sure someone, somewhere would have found these fuckers and killed a few. Especially in this techno world we live in. These bitches should have been in cages at the local zoo.
In other news my fish benny is jumping a lot. I had to put a plate over his vase cause the little bastard is trying to commit betacide.
Well I lost my job, or will lose my job fairly soon. Like on Monday. So I'm kinda sad. Not really about losing the job though, which tells me that I've been there way too long. But the not going to Japan in August part. Which might still happen depending on if I can get enough old coworkers to take us. It'll up the price a bit, but it'd be worth it.
So yeah... I gotta go buy a paper to look at the want ads now.
Oh on Wednesday we're not going to Great Lakes Crossing. We'll go to MJR though to see a movie with you guys for Tochi and Duo's b-day.
OMFG two posts in two days.
