Harry Potter Fan Fiction

Why I don't want to hear complaints about LJ Downtime

http://www.themoscowtimes.com/mobile/opinion/article/web-will-win-in-cyber-war/441377.html

Yeah, once again, when many folks were making snide comments about LJ, the issue was actually that the site and its network were under sustained attack by a hostile and repressive government bent on disrupting political dissidence.

I hate seeing people bitch at LJ when this happens. It's like seeing someone out walking with a black friend, and, when he's set upon by a racist mob who start clubbing him with truncheons, the "Friend" starts yelling at him for making them late!

Please, have a backup journal. Dreamwidth rocks, and it's actually my primary posting journal. I'm pretty sure I have some invite codes.

But don't slam LJ, don't complain about them, don't rail against or abandon them. No, LJ is not being an arse: It's being attacked!

STOP BLAMING THE VICTIM!!!!!

I went out for a ride today in hopes of visiting a really cool looking comic-book store I've driven past, and found it closed. On the other hand, when I was on the way, I glanced down at my cell phone, and found I'd received a text from sarahenany! She'd flown into New York yesterday, and was en route to San Francisco today, and had a 2-hour layover in Boston! So I called her, having the privilege of speaking with her for the first time ever, and she's got the most darling, charming voice, combining a very precise and sharply-defined British accent with a wonderfully spicy tang of the Middle East, giving it extra warmth and flavor. I did some quick figuring,and decided I could make it, so I drove into Boston's Logan International Airport, and had a wonderful Flist cuddle and chat and all around wonderful time with the very, very darling sarahenany! Go, me!
