Spreading info about the oncoming strike - info snagged both from [personal profile] lirren  and [personal profile] yuvi  :)

WHY GO ON STRIKE?

* 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, sex and depression. This decision was not announced or explained in any way. Users found out for themselves.


HOW DO YOU PARTICIPATE:

Do not provide LJ with content for a full 24 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.


WHEN IS THE STRIKE?


On Friday, March 21st.
If you are confused about the time look up this table here to find out when the strike starts in your home country.

Need an extra push to participate in the strike? Just read this truly "magnificent" interview with Anton Nusik (SUP) here





I have had an InsaneJournal account ever since the first signs of witch-hunting started on LiveJournal and I will be on my InsaneJournal account during the strike.
Might just post some goodies to make it worthwhile haha

In case you'd like to drop by (maybe even add me?), I am to be found here :D

As a personal aside, I will lock down the fanfiction on my journal for the time of the strike, making them all personal entries.
