To every free user that has complained about posting limits for Livejournal

More thoughts when I'm more coherent. Read news for more information.
Current Mood: Pissed at the upcoming LJ civil war

Heh. I never complained. I think it makes sense to have a limit. I'm a fan of the 5 posts/day limit. That seems reasonable.

There is also a relative bug in the system. I currently have 2 outstanding codes. I could get myself 2 more livejournals, tell my friends about them...and a week after that, get 2 more...wait a week, get two more...

But I wouldn't do that. I've been thinking of getting a second one in order for it to be my source code repository (the best off-site backup EVER), but so far it has been only thoughts.

I'm personally pissed off that I missed the few-hour window for a permanent account. To have one would be divine. If I had one, THEN I know I'd start using livejournal as a source code repository without regret. Heh.

The "generate more codes, get more journals," is a known "bug," which the LJ team has no plans of fixing. They know about the so-called abuses of it, and as long as you aren't bogging down the LJ repository in general, they don't care. There are a bunch of lamers with some perl scripts who have made LJ slow as fuck, and these people need to die. But that's neither here nor there.

Permanent accounts are a "shit, we need money, let's offer some permanent accounts" fix to the problem of buying servers and paying for bandwidth. They do it every couple of months - the window will be open again, and probably soon. Since they cost $100 a crack, when LJ offers 50 up for grabs, it's an instant five grand. But it won't be if they offer it all the time - which is one of the few inklings of business sense I've seen the creators make.

Anyway, off to finish writing the forthcoming rant.

This is all because I didn't mention the Teriyaki sauce, isn't it?
Well, it's great! Are you happy now?

I didn't complain?!?!?!

*sniff* 'sides, I'd rather just get a paid account. :( Therefore, you're not pissed at me and life is all good :)

Re: But.....but...
No, not pissed at you - everybody on the friends-list is exempted. The people in the two latest threads, however . . . "Argh, ARGH!" I say

The only point of contention that I can accept is that it limits posts in communities as well.
Although more often than not I've wished people in communities would just shut up already.
So I guess I don't really care.
