I wrote this earlier and then deleted it. But it still applies.

After a protracted period of enduring Ken Livingstone's "Symphony to a London Traffic Jam", (Popular alternative titles: "yeah, fuck you and the dodgem car you're riding into town on" and "Who taught you to drive, Stevie Wonder?") I am not fit for anything but snark.


Shut the hell up:

Those whiney asses over on LJ-news. You know what, if you can't cope with a three-post a day limit maybe you should stop posting every time your cat fucking coughs* or that bitch teacher gives you extra homework because you passed notes in class or someone ignored you or you see a picture of Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan that provides "definitive, for definite, proof that they are so doing it"**.

Because I *am* that bitch teacher, and I recommend that you maybe do a "hey, my cat coughed/that bitch teacher/I am *snubbed*, I may die/Domlijah4eva" combo and save me the trouble of having to scroll past four posts that bore me to tears.

Yes, it's your LJ and I don't have to read friendsfriends -- however, logical argument does not come into this (because it's my LJ) and I still want you to shut the hell up about it. I'm irrational like that.

As it happens, I think a three-post limit would suffice easily for most people -- occasionally there is some personal circumstance, need to vent, big national news event or media talking point or fandom KERFUFFLE (Note, no extraneous L, since I am being Ms Bitch today) which prompts more posts a day. So if they just made it 5-10-15, they could avoid much of the hassle

It's a free service. It's only a small reduction of privileges. Deal with it or cough up the money, you tightfisted pillock.

* No one on this friends' list. You only speak of genuinely amusing pet-related things.

**Also, on the Domlijah tip, you might like to double-check McNae's Essential Law for Journalists or whatever your country's relevant code is for the definitions of "libel" and "published" and "fiction". The slashers probably have a defence; you don't.***

*** Yeah, yeah, I know, no one cares. But I'm just being a cow today, so I thought I'd get that bit in

I know that cases involving disgusting fictional things about real people have been overturned by higher courts here, but the fact that you can get it into court at all is something I wish people would think about more.

I don't think they think about it *at all*.

There are a scary number of ways you can land yourself in trouble, particularly with the web = publishing state of affairs, and just because you probably won't get done for it doesn't mean you definitely won't get done for it.

you said it!

I am also feeling intolerant of whiners lately.

Btw, if you're free anytime soon we can meet for a pint and discuss whiners inperson.

I should like that very much. I have the work schedule of evil for the next fortnight (I work nights) but would you fancy doing lunch? I work about 10 minutes from Islington.

My email address is infinitemonkeys@ntlworld.com and my mobile phone number is 07791 625975. I am working on not losing this phone or having it nicked. *g*

You had me at "Domlijah."

Oh, dearlord, that's funny.

Now, as a cheap free user, do I get as many comments as I want? That's what I'm all about...limit my comments, I may have to pony up. *g*

*Domlijah*...heeheeeheeee

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Because, like angstville, nothing cracks me up faster than the mention of Domlijah and their secret gay sartorial messages to the world.

Dude, you come right over and sit by me, and share in my bitchy worldview. 'Kay?

I was wondering that myself when I went over there and scrolled through 14 pages of comments (more than that now, I'm certain). I'm a free user (as it stands now), and I find 3 posts a day to be sufficent. If I were a person who had lots of random thoughts that I INSISTED be shared with the rest of the LJ scrolling public as they occurred to me, I'd just make a log of them throughout the day, and post them before I went to bed. Granted, this is what I would do if I had that problem, was saving my allowance for Avril Lavigne tickets or something ("two more lawns and I've got it!") and didn't have much bigger shit to worry about.

Hoo[ahem]-fuckin'-RAH.

I went over there yesterday purely for the rubbernecking value and was stunned by my own reaction, which was essentially, "Pay up or shut up, assclowns."

(I probably won't sing the same tune when CNN starts to charge for non-premium content, but that's still a little while off.)

YOU. RULE. In your decidedly non-cowlike nature. I am on my chair, a flicked bic in hand.

"assclowns". This word is beautiful to me. It doesn't make me laugh as much as "asshats" but I still find it very funny.

Re: Freebird!
[beam] Further proof - as if we needed any more - that all good things in life come from professional wrasslin'. I got "assclown" from Chris Jericho. Squee!
