I don't usually get all worked up in re: LiveJournal politics, but this is ridiculous. Have you heard? They've eliminated the possibility to make a new "Basic" (i.e. ad-free, cost-free) account. One has to choose a Plus account (ads! ew!) or Paid.

Not only did they do that, but they DIDN'T MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT. They were like "oh, hey, lookit these changes we are making, we are doing really super awesome, also the sign-up process is easier!" They meant it's easier because now there are TWO account options instead of three. When someone realized what was happening and posted in the comments, and then everyone freaked out, they were like, "oh, our bad, we thought you wouldn't care because it affects new users, not you. Also we're still trying to figure out the right "tone" to take with you people." This is absurd for a million reasons.

Here's Brad's take on it.

The whole thing is gross.
