Ok... where am I??: Not home....
My...state of mind...: contemplativecontemplative
ONE DAY CONTENT STRIKE: Friday, March 21, from midnight to midnight GMT.

For one day, make no posts. Make no comments. Let there be NO new content added to LJ.

SUP obviously does not realize that Basic users have given something of value to them, that it is content that drives the site.

So, for one 24-hour period, from midnight GMT to midnight GMT, let's see how many people we can get to pledge to contribute NO CONTENT.

This will create a permanent downward spike in the daily-posts statistics, a permanent reminder of the power of the userbase.

We are holding the Content Strike because we want to demonstrate that LiveJournal is content-driven.

We are holding the Content Strike because we want the new owners of LiveJournal to better understand the power and resolve of the LJ Community of Users.

We are holding the Content Strike because all of us, Paid, Permanent and Plus users as well as Basic, want to demonstrate our solidarity as a Community of Users. We do not consider Basic users to be freeloaders, we consider them to be valuable content-providers and Friends.

We are holding the Content Strike because we ache to do something to show our displeasure, and commenting on the news post -- even with cat macros -- just isn't powerful enough!

For more information about the strike check out the journal of beckyzoole .

hey what does this mean? i have a plus account, are they going to shut me down? are they forcing us to pay now? this totally sucks because if that happens, that's the end of my lj, there's no way i can pay for it.
Reading is life... :)

I don't really know Amanda, I read this in CT journal and decided to support it, but since I'm not in my city I just did it without really reading everything ;).

You can check the LJ of the girl who is promoting this, is in the post, hugs!!! Be well and take care, Monica
