I don't like LJ putting in place LJ-cuts that override my own and thus don't let the reader make an informed choice about reading material. I talk of spoilers, TMI, and porn - you might be OK with the one of these and not with the others, and I don't want anyone to be made to read something they don't want because of their very natural curiosity. I know I can rate my journal to "kiddie-safe" and thus get rid of the cuts, but there's not much point in doing that when LJ is trying to make us behave like responsible adults, is there?

But the breaking point was the flagging button. A community where delation is encouraged or even supported is no place I want to be in. It just... squicks me I guess.

So I'm doing what reactionaries world-wide do and emigrated to a world that resembles what LJ "used to be" before it "went to the dogs" (why yes I love tropes).

You can find me at

I'm having a housewarming drabble party here - want to come over for a drink and some porn?

I'll go on flocking a lot. If you can spare the time, I'd love you to create an account over there as well so that you can read the locked posts too (Here's a linky to start a journal, it's free and you get a lot more icons than at LJ).

The wonderful [ profile] cosmo_jenny went to the trouble of creating a syndicated feed to LJ; as I understand it, if you friend it you get a link to my posts on LJ. It is here:

Of course I'll go on reading your entries here :)

That was no trouble at all. :)

Locking.... As a paid user, I can access a privacy tool which takes just a few minutes to lock ALL my entries if I want it to.

Thank you all the same :)

Well it's OK for entries to be unlocked if they're just links or so. But I do like to keep the flock option for personal stuff and such.

Oh when I decided to f-lock my journal, I just locked them all because with 600 something entries I was just too lazy to decide for each entry whether or not lock worthy.

It try to do it as I go, precisely because I'm far too lazy to go back afterwards and correct things.

Btw, [ profile] duniazade is asking whether you can be bribed into making a syndication for her as well:

Oh sure, no problem.
I just need the address of the link and she can decide how I have to name it.

Thank you very much, you're adorable!

Here's my IJ:

Here's my LJ:

As for naming...I suppose my username is the simplest?

I know I'm pushing my luck, but do you know, by any chance, how to get a sidebar with tags on IJ? I'm used to have one on LJ and I miss it greatly on IJ.

It is like Livejournal. You need to choose the right layout that allows you to show it.
I am using Bloggish at IJ and have my list of tags in the sidebar.

A zillion thanks! You are a fount of knowledge and I love you! :D

Haha! You're welcome!

No, I am just bored enough to actually work with all the shiny stuff LJ and to an extent IJ offers.

I'm breaking down and beg: How, how do you do it? I have two communities and want to move to ij for good sometimes soon. If I could, somehow, syndicate the communities, people who want to stay on lj would also have the posts on their flist. I've been looking around, but I don't have much spare time and am not a paid user on ij (I don't trust any of them much), and won't be much longer on lj. Can you point me, pretty please? :)

I have no idea how to do it on IJ. (Probably similar to LJ, though)
But on LJ, it is pretty easy: You look for one of the lists of syndicated feeds and on the bottom of the side, there will be "Add Feed by URL". Enter the link; it will ask you for a name and you're done.

Oh... feels stupid. I have seen that, but always thought I have to do it from the other end. I'll try. Thank you! :)

I tried it and it worked! Yay! I'll better make and syndicate all my ij accounts I want in the near future as long as I have the paid lj account. :)
Thanks again.

The syndicated feed does work. I can read your IJ posts on my f-list on LJ. I wonder if commenting from here works. *waves*

It does! *waves back*
