Well I certainly do feel sorry for those who won't be around tomorrow cause I'm gonna be posting about THE COOLEST MOST AWESOMEST STUFF EVER and it's gonna be great and there'll be a party and there'll also be a cat party for cats and there'll be balloons and dancing girls and popcorn and free ice cream and beer, but I'm going to delete everything at 11:59 pm on Friday night so, like, oh well.

I suppose I should take a few paragraphs here and make a little ahem-hem statement about how the "day of no posting" protest should be called just that: a protest, not a strike, but I'm willing to bet most of those around who are intelligent enough realize that the effects of this are purely symbolic.

And really, as a one-day measure, this activity will achieve nothing that an actual "strike" should, because its very nature is nothing like a strike -- namely, the prolonged and continued deprivation of an industry's revenue, manpower and product by refusing to do that which one is contracturally obligated to do.

If you seek to make a symbolic statement by refusing to voluntarily participate in LJ for one day, by all means, make your voice heard by not making it be heard for once, and more power to you. But if you've got the WGA strike fresh in your mind and believe that you're really gonna show SUP a thing or two by lessening their server load and reducing their bandwidth usage for a day, boy howdy are you are barking up the wrong tree.

But enough of that. Anyway, it was more fun to write things like "THE COOLEST MOST AWESOMEST STUFF EVER" and "a cat party for cats"
