|12:06 am - What do we want?|
Posting during an LJ strike is like making ripples in a calm sea.
I love LJ downtime, LJ strikes, and really busy ADF festival weekends.
I'm so far behind on my Friends' List it isn't even funny. . . Stuff like this just helps me actually keep up with ya'll.
Catch ya tomorrow when you get back around to posting.
Or earlier, if you forget you're on strike. :)
Current Location: Southeast of Disorder
Current Mood: awake
Current Music: "Volcano", -JB
Illious posted the details here
I dunno... I just don't care to take a side.
All current free accounts are still free.
New accounts can be created for free still, but they're ad-supported.
Which is just like free, but . . . Oh, wait: you're still not paying for anything.

To use an overused internet cliche, THIS
I almost posted last week when I found out about the "controversy". I love free stuff, but I also understand that it costs money to buy servers and power and staff, etc. As long as the ad isn't a video with audio, or it doesn't try to take over your whole frickin' screen, fine, everyone needs to be paid.
I've had a paid account for almost the last year (I think), that's because I like LJ and right now I have the money to support them. I hardly ever use the benifits of having a paid account vs. a free one, but just view it as supporting a site I like. I do the same with Fark, I never go on TotalFark, but still pay the 5 a month.
To be honest, I'm very surpised that wikipedia has stayed around as long as it has without ads.
