So I read this:

"A note to users of RP, Meme and other communities, where subject line is crucial for operation: for the moment we are developing only standard commenting representation, well know in LiveJournal as S1 styles, but we will keep subject lines, both in terms of form and representation, in advanced — S2 — styles, and provide an ability to keep it forever for certain communities, as well as, by request, will develop an extra functionality for such communities thru OpensSocial applications going public next year."

On a preview page for the new comment layouts and you know what would be SO MUCH SIMPLER than having all these different styles and trying grandfather certain comms with titled comments etc etc? Leaving the comments the fuck alone. I know, radicle idea right, leaving something that has worked for ages (10+ years) alone and making your users happy. Who ever thought of that?

I mean seriously livejournal, what harm were comment titles doing you? it's not like people HAD to put in a title if they didnt want to, they could just leave it blank and then it would show up ... without a title. And for everyone else who regularly wades through pages and pages of comments and stratified comments, titles were extremely useful. And it's not just comms, RP and memes who use the bloody comment titles for fuck sake, regular people in their regular journals also receive hundreds and hundreds of comments, a situation where again titles? SO useful at organizing and directing the reader.

You'd think that after the great Delicious fail and massive fan migration other fanservices would pay attention to things that are bad: ie redesigns that alienate your users. But apparently you can't. So fuck you livejournal, I have been a faithful user since 2003. I havent moved to any of the other free blog fan networks because I always felt at home here but this really cuts the cake.

I suggest you wake up and notice people's displeasure with your shitty changes or I believe you'll see a great Livejournal Migration of 2011 because guess what? We have options, there is nothing that says we have to use you.

so, politically speaking i'm pretty much in the middle, not ultra-conservative nor super liberal. i like happy mediums.

my parents, suffice is to say are very conservative. that's fine, thats there prerogative. my father holds a deep and unyeilding scorn for anyone who uses the phrase global warming or climate change. and, personally i havent looked into the issue too deeply so whether or not there is any conclusive evidence to suggest that the planet is undergoing drastic and bad changes verses a cyclical climate change i dont know and i think it's a little besides the point. because the truth is, if nothing else, we *are* generating massive amounts of garbage, we are pumping out chemicals and gases that are, if nothing else, toxic to people and animals.

so, looking at it from their perspective it confuses me when it suddenly became non christian to worry about the planet and want to take care of the place god gave us in the first place?

it irks me to no end when people mistakenly mix up their politics with their religion and then makes political judgements as though they were handed down from the hand of god, as though that was justification when really its just pig headedness with no biblical basis that they've wrapped up in dogma.

I just want to register damnit.

So, i very foolishly listened to my freshman advisor when i registered for summer quarter and NOW I"M TOTALLY AND TRULY FUCKED. I'm in the completely wrong math track and this math proff i emailed says i have to go back and take MATH 140, 141 and 142 when i'm totally qualified to be in math 142 THIS quarter *crycrycry* I'm so frustrated. and i cant register for classes until my bloody cont-student-advisor gives me my PIN number and i couldnt find her office on advising day *which i didnt want to go to because she was talking about getting an Associate of Business DT which i DONT WANT* and i already have all my classes picked out and scheduled.

this thing is, i can read a schedule, its not hard. it *really isnt* i dont need to talk to anymore advisors who dont understand how i think and what sort of degree i want when *I* dont know what degree specifically i want. i want to keep it open, take some classes, find out what i'm good at. i dont want to get locked into a degree program right now. GRAR. and thats exactly what they've done.

Pisses me off. Now i've got 10 credits i dont need. ARG

I am NOT cooling my heels in math 140, it would be such a waste of fucking time. I took calculus and self taught myself Linear Alg in High School, i really dont need to take fucking College Algebra.

And my show is still cancelled.

Nano please come already, i need something else to distract myself with.
