LJ Advisory Board Elections [May. 27th, 2008|05:23 pm]

Wow, this place sure has been quiet.

In any case, some of you may not be aware that the LiveJournal Advisory Board Elections are taking place.

If you haven't been following the election, then—surprise surprise!—the current front-runner, legomymalfoy, is an active member of LJ abuse and self-described "Abuse Nazi" who has stated that she will not resign that position if elected.

In other words, the person who is about to be elected intends to simultaneously represent and police the userbase. If that sounds like hiring your arresting officer to be your defense attorney, then maybe you should take this opportunity to go vote for one of her opponents. I would suggest the current second-place candidate, jameth, both because he's the closest to beating her and because I personally believe he's best for the job, but really, anyone who is not also an abuse team member is a good choice.

Don't give the Abuse team a free pass to keep walking all over users.

I'd also like to note that I (and several others who can provide their own screen shots) asked her a very valid question concerning this issue:
LMM_scr_sht

Her response was to locked down the entry and not reply to me at all. Why won't she answer?

Although that part may be true, her post regarding this was made after she returned home.

I now regret that I did not save enough of the screenshot where she states she is home and preparing to answer everyone's questions. But as you CAN see by the shot, she has taken the time to answer at least once question, and has also had the time to lock down her post.

Oops, I take back my statement that she says she's home. She doesn't actually state that.

NOTE TO ANYONE LOOKING TO USE THIS AS PROOF OF ANYTHING: This is my bad, not Jameth's. Please do not misconstrue my innacuracy as "evidence" that Jameth is a troll.

This post isn't about Jameth. It's about a self-described "Abuse Nazi" being elected to represent the LJ userbase.

FAIL!

Oh, I do do I? When, and where, did I ever say that *I* thought Jameth was a troll?

Also, since when have I bahleeted any serious posts in here?

Re: FAIL!

These past few days have been filled full of statements based on assumptions and rumors.

This is why I now make it a point to not say anything unless I have some sort of verification, like *points up* a screen shot.

Re: FAIL!

*nods* Hence why when Marta said that the Interests policy on interest meaning like "was retracted nearly as quickly as it was said", I grabbed a screen shot...

...in case the comment all of a sudden magically vanished.

Re: FAIL!

Thing is, I don't actually twist words, I state exactly what I mean (typos aside), it's just that - IME - most of the rest of the world has trouble with NOT twisting the actual words that they see in front of them. *shrug*

I'm just happy that I at last appear to've achieved LJ in70rw3b fame, since - according to your good self, whom I have absolutely no reason to disbelieve at all (even despite that fact that I don't know you from adam [there's gotta be one, I'll eat my... erm... next chinese if there isn't one ;)]) - I am "one of the better known trolls on Livejournal", which is not bad for having been here seven'n'half years. That quote is SO going in LJ user inof. y'know!

I don't like heavy handed moderation, so I don't understand why I'd want to be doing it myself. In here I try to put a stop to outright slagging off, but if *I* feel it can come under hyperbole, then I'll leave it unless I get ordered by LJ Abuse to pull it. If they order that I pull it, then I've not really got any choice, since it's that or they shut the comm. down, which is what I don't want to have happening.

Re: FAIL!

But again, I didn't say that *I* thought it made him less of a candidate, only that that' what some, nay, many, people think.

As for who I am. Well we're in a total of one mutual community - this one (which has been bloody quiet of late anyway). *shrug* What can I say, your ironing leaves much to be desired, since it looks more like it came straight out of the washer, still all scrunched up. Either way, you've said it in public on LJ, and so into my user info. it's gone - as does any comment made about me that I feel leads to an amusing glimpse of who I MAY be.

Thank you. I'm glad at least one person understood my explanation. :)

I intentionally didn't make this a thread about Jameth (though I do still enthusiastically support him) because such a thread wouldn't be on-topic, but a thread about how an abuse team stooge is being elected to represent users' interests most certainly is.

Yes, because a comment in the same thread is really hard work to track down.

So were you washing your hair that night too? :p

Is this the Sifl & Ollie video for "Don't You Want Me"?

If you feel that LJ abuse uses its authority in an arbitrary and capricious manner, a vote for jameth is the best thing you can do in this election to help.
