|01:21 pm - wellspring announcement|
From the announcement for Wellspring:
"There is no pre-registration again this year, and we have two prices. ADF Members are $60 and Non-ADF Members are $75. Our intention was to have non members become members but apparently this idea is not palatable to some people. We are not forcing anyone to become an ADF member, but this is an ADF members event and we of course strongly encourage everyone to support ADF by at least joining."
Haha. It appears that I am now "some people" :)
Current Mood: hot
Current Music: "Autour du Rocher", -JB
*shakes fist* You some people you.
Ohh. I will check that out :)
I don't quite feel right making friends-only posts. I'm actually rather proud that I don't have any (or any private ones, either), but I'm weird like that. I'm a big fan of saying stuff openly, but it's definitely not for everybody.
Besides, if someone did direct them to it, that's probably for the best.
Yeah, I know. It's crazy like that, and I've seen it happen.
Me, I just leave things in friends-only posts alone. I've been mistakenly included on filters before, and seen some very interesting things. But I know that those posts were for personal steam-blowing, and it simply wouldn't be right for me to talk about them or post about them.
I'm remarkably immune to the forms of criticism I've experienced so far, mostly because I write better than my detractors, and I'm popular enough that attacking me isn't too smart (not that that has stopped people in the past, mind you).
Wow, that sounds almost hubristic... :) Cool.
I salute you. I don't make friends-only posts because this is an open journal. I'm a-gonna put my thoughts down. If someone doesn't like it, they can click that mouse button to somewhere else. It took my a little over 30 years to realize that I don't have to care what people think.
To paraphrase, "I'm here, I'm loud, I'm honest, get over it" ROFL
Honesty is always the best policy. I'm constantly amused by people who think otherwise. :)
Some of us have "friend's only" journals which has nothing to do with being honest or open or not honest or not open.
I have a child and it is my duty as a mother to protect him. Plus I have stalker issues; as in finding people in my home and them threatening me physically stalker issues.
But I'm always honest (ask chronarchy
), in fact I can be brutal. And I don't give a rats ass what other people think about me. If I wasn't a mother my journal would be a mostly open one (sorry, there are something things that are meant to be private-- like what I went through when I lost my baby).
Well done sir. You've stepped up in the world. Next time, aim for "a small but vocal minority."
I can see why you'd want to be "some people" in this situation. But what do I know?
That is a good second step. Maybe after that, I can become "the minority of the religious right", and then the "Moral Minority", followed closely by the "majority because not enough people care to vote".
Or one of the extremists who give everyone else a bad name. I've always wanted to be that.
Ooh! That's a good point!
"Michael J Dangler, the extremist who gives all other Druids and Discordians a bad name, declared jihad against the stupid people of the world today in a nationally televised press conference. Randomly reading from a laundry list of 283 names of people in power who had been overcome by stupidness, he declared that the smart people of the world must rise up, destroy the structures currently in place, and sieze the means of production. He closed his speech with the words: 'Idiots of the world, be you ugly or hot, your time has come!'"
