SAD PANDA

26+ pages of drama condensed into a one-size-fits-all complaint

LiveJournal: "We're introducing ads."
Majority of the (computer-literate) userbase: "WAAAAAAAH", usually followed by one or more of the following:
  • YOU SOLD OUT.
  • I FEEL DEMEANED.
  • YOU LIED TO ME.
  • I WANT A REFUND.
  • THIS CHEAPENS PAID ACCOUNTS.
  • WHAT ABOUT THE EARLY ADOPTERS.
  • LIVEJOURNAL'S TURNING INTO MYSPACE.
  • I'VE LOST TRUST IN YOU.
  • MY OPINION MEANS NOTHING TO YOU CORPORATE FUCKS.
  • YOU HAVE NO INTEGRITY ANY MORE.
  • I'M GOING TO GREATESTJOURNAL.
I'm sure azurelunatic will have one of her excellent summaries posted before long. (Update 13:43: It's up.) And shatteredshards? Stop trying to organise a revolution. If you want to leave badly enough, you can.
