Links, LJs and Blogs

This is going to be an entry of links and little commentary, I've been exceptionally busy IRL and apologize for not dealing with all the emails from the past 2 weeks yet. I promise more comprehensive updates soon!

A tale of LJ Abuse, vampire hunters, and screened comments.

Reassuring: Six Apart VP Anil Dash says "we really like having our community do a sanity check for us."

Less reassuring: Anil Dash offends some other LJ users.

These posts relate to another Petition about LiveJournal. You might also be interested in this post by former LJ employee insomnia.

Lastly I'm sorry to see that someone is using the comments here to further a private vendetta with another LJ user. If it continues I will turn on comment moderating. No I am not yellowest-finch, and it has not been at all hidden that Christine D (who took over the updates on the breastfeeding icon fiasco one weekend for me when I was away and it was all happening) is realcdaae on LiveJournal. I have linked to some of her posts.
