this is a rant. i don’t know how to properly phrase or describe this, or even if this is a wise thing to do since it’s probably NOMFB, but i thought to bring the topic out for discussion, and hope someone wiser will comment on this.
i do not use and am not entirely sure why livejournals seem to be so popular. i am relatively new here and do not know the people or the politics here. in RL, backstabbing happens. so perhaps it’s not as surprising that on the internet, backstabbing happens too. however, i feel the internet equivalent of those dark words whispered among cliques behind people’s back would be ICQ or some such; but, livejournal?! that is like a spurned lover stapling her juiced underwear on the neighbourhood cafe’s bulletin board, where he knows she is unlikely to visit!
if you feel like !@#% someone, please have the common decency to do it in the pit, which seemed to be made for just such a purpose. if you feel you'll be @#%^ for pitting the person on the board itself and will rather do so somewhere else then please do have the simple courtesy to link or inform the person involved. but no, because then it wouldn’t be #$%^& backstabbing would it? :mad:
if this is a non sequitor, whoosh, have been done or just plain lame, excuse me, but i needed the rant. i feel better now.
