Consider me fuckin' Willy fuckin' Wonka! This is my fucking chocolate factory!  
Argh! This post by elfflame has me good an' pissed off! If you oppose censorship, I highly suggest you read it. She has said my sentiments more eloquently than I could.

That is also why I only have one interest listed, "freedom of speech".

Another hot button issue going on, outside of LJ that is, is Rosie vs. Elisabitch. I think you can tell by the play of words what side I am on. Normally, while I do agree with Rosie a lot, I don't really like her too much. I admire her work with kids and all, but I always thought her to be kind of a blowhard. But at least she isn't a toddler having a temper tantrum like Ms. Hasselbeck. If you also would like to see Elisabitch go, sign the petition.

Now that I've ranted about all that, I will stay away from politics, and believe me, I had a lot to rant about. But I will wait until after I finish Al Gore's new book, which I bought today. "I spent the last of our money on this Al Gore doll." *pulls string* "You.Are.Hearing.Me.Talk."

And of course I also bought Hannibal Rising Unrated!!!!! And I got carded too. LOL! Mass fangirling during my laundry, that I can assure you.

Okay, the good news is I found a Starbucks drive-thru closer to my house. The bad news is I found a Starbucks drive-thru closer to my house. :P

I woke up early on my day off. I hate when that happens!!!!

Anyway, I am going to watch the season finale of House at my friend John's house. And since I always get at least minorly lost, I should get ready. For the locals on the list, he lives in Lynwood and the first time I drove there, I ended up at where you get in line for the Bremerton ferry. Damn you, MapQuest! And my lousy sense of direction!

*EDIT*
Okay, that entry is FO, I am stupid. Feel free to take me out back and shoot me. Long story short, a bunch of LJ communities were suspended or removed due to having certain interests listed, such as "incest". I can understand why taking down RL communites that promote or condone pedophilia. But fannish communities?! pornish_pixies and others were good, not-so-clean fun!

There are more complete lists of late communities here and here.

I don't like Rosie or Elisabitch. Rosies comment about Trump should have never been said and talking about Ellen was crossing a line too, but you know how I feel about censorship. I do agree with her though on some things like 9/11 should be re-investigated.

I can't read that post, but I AM going to see what the petition is all about :)

It's f-locked. D'oh! Basically LJ has shut down communities that have interests like "incest" listed. And it's not only real life communities, but fannish ones as well. I know that
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<ljuser="pornish_pixies">') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

It's f-locked. D'oh! Basically LJ has shut down communities that have interests like "incest" listed. And it's not only real life communities, but fannish ones as well. I know that <ljuser="pornish_pixies"> (an HP community) is gone... I can understand how they took down some RL pedophilic groups, but fictional work? C'mon now, LJ.

I could not believe Rosie said that about Ellen! Like it's any of her fucking business!

I don't pretty much anyone on The View. The only who is somewhat non-bitchy is never there anymore!
licensetodream on May 30th, 2007 06:53 am (UTC)
Ugh at LJ. It somewhat still reminds me of that whole library situation.

I KNOW! Ellen has to tone down her gayness? Uh, what? No... Ellen's pretty vocal about it. I mean, it's not her whole show and if I had a show, my pansexuality would not be what my talk show revolved around. Sorry, but no. Ellen's show is just so lighthearted and a good thing to watch when you want to get your mind off of things. You know?


I love how there's jokes about The View being Estrogen Central. You can tell there's people with permanent PMS and permanent menopause on that show.

Yeah pretty much the one political issue that I really get into is censorship. I'm very against it! Unfortunately I could not get to that post. So I don't know what exactly was being said about it. lol That link was just giving me an error message.

As far as the whole rosie, hassellbeck issue goes, my thoughts can best be expressed by something I heard on an episode of scrubs. I don't remember the exact quote but it was something about hell involving being forced to watch episodes of The View. They both drive me insane, though like you, I would say I'm more inclined to side with Rosie if I had to choose one lol.

Yeah, I just realized it's friends locked. I'm an idiot. :P

But basically LJ has suspended or removed all together communities with specific interests, such as "incests". And it's not just real life communities, but fannish ones as well. I understand taking down RL pedopholic groups and all that. But pornish_pixies is great, pervy Harry Potter fun!

I leave eljay for like a day, and all this goes down.

From what I can tell, pedophile groups have been taken down (which is good) but it looks like some fanfiction groups have been as well? The latter is what is kinda irking me. I mean, a bit, since it doesn't effect me in the least bit, but it does effect some lj friends of mine probably.
Allee: lunalovegoodlady_lyca on May 30th, 2007 07:13 am (UTC)
Hehehe. Well, I missed all the FanLib drama, so I understand how ya feel.

Pretty much. They are deleting pretty indiscriminately from what I gather. I think I did hear somewhere they sent a more detailed e-mail about the suspension to some mods... But yeah, if it's fiction, it's not really LJ staff's business.
Aude  Odeh (Aw-day O-duh)zenithyoda on May 30th, 2007 07:20 am (UTC)
FanLib?

I work 45 hours a week to be this poor: bad wilson!zfiledh on May 30th, 2007 10:07 am (UTC)
I've already heard of the late pornish_pixies from a friend of mine. This sounds awful for the fannish communities. :(
Chrissyx_starbuck on May 30th, 2007 11:43 am (UTC)
Agh WHAT IDIOTS. I mean after the Hacker (the one who hacked x-files communities) and now THESE idiots. *sulks* Why do people have to make our online-life stressful just like our RL.. and how can they 'flush out,' pedophiles. They'll just make new emails, and new journals.
Allee: andrewsayslady_lyca on May 30th, 2007 04:13 pm (UTC)
Siriusly! So far this has only really affected the HP fandom. But I can see it totally snow-balling and LJ becoming like FF.net when they banned NC-17 fics.
Chrissyx_starbuck on May 31st, 2007 07:57 am (UTC)
FF.net banned NC-17.. seriously?
Only the HP fandom? Really? LOTR fans are upset too. I'm just upset cos you know.. I'M IN THE HP FANDOM.. AND WHY WOULD THEY DO THIS ANYWAY? THEY ARE SUCK WANKTARDS.. AND OMG I'VE NEVER USED THAT INSULT BEFORE. :s
lambobrat on May 30th, 2007 04:03 pm (UTC)
I just saw the fight between Elizabeth and Rosie last night...(I've been in Texas the past few days)
And whoaaaaa, what a wench!!! She was so innocent and sweet on Survivor...I could hardly believe my ears! *resists urge to rant*
Allee: jameseyebrowlady_lyca on May 30th, 2007 04:15 pm (UTC)
Until this, I had never watched more than 5 minutes of The View.

So. Much. Estrogen!

Thank gawd for YouTube. I wish Elisabitch would just stop pretending. "Oh we're on our way to forgiving. We talked A LOT this weekend." No one believes you. They all hate each other, I wish they would drop the facade.
lambobrat on May 30th, 2007 04:41 pm (UTC)
haha me too!!

yeah, so she needs to...like...die. hmmm..I wonder what will come of The View now? Not that it matters to us...hehe :)
