Thank you, Zachary Quinto.

If you feel helpless or aren't in the US to easily join protests or marches, donate to the ACLU. I did. Every damn dollar counts these days.

Or do what someone I know did (before the Muslim Ban, when everyone was "only" up in arms about the abortion stuff):

I was angry at Donald Trump and so I donated $35 to Planned Parenthood as a gift in his name. Then I put the White House address as the 'notification recipient address' so they will mail him a Thank You card. Everybody else who is angry today should donate as well (the minimum you can donate is $5 so if you're angry but also poor, you should be able to still help) :

This? Is awesome trolling that helps at the same time. Kudos to Sarah for doing this.

There aren't enough NOPEs in the world to convey my feelings right now.

'Murica, why did you do this to yourself?! (And the rest of the world, for that matter.)

There's a tweet out there that sums up the situation perfectly (they read it out loud on the radio so I have no actual link to the source, sorry):

9/11 - Never forget

Even after sleeping on it, even after having over a day to get over it, I'm still beyond enraged.

You see this?

matt+mark emmy

In my headcanon, in my reality, this is what actually happened. This is Matt Bomer with the Emmy he oh-so-rightfully won. With Mark hiding his Emmy somewhere because he, too, of course, won. This is not the ONLY Emmy The Normal Heart won, with Matty and Mark showing it off and smiling into the cameras while inwardly not trying to hulk out over the fucking injustice of it all.

more ranting behind the cut )

I promise I'm done ranting now. I just needed to get this out of my system.

The Normal Heart won ONE Emmy.

Just. A. Single. One.

Are you fucking kidding me???

I am so incensed right now, I could scream. In fact, I did scream at my laptop when Matty lost. HE WAS ROBBED. Hell, everyone (except maybe Julia Roberts - I did favor Kathy Bates) was robbed.

And you could see Matty's disappointment when the "winner" was announced. I just wanted to reach through my screen and smish him.

FU, Emmy assholes. Eff. Yoo.

I don't know why they're so obsessed with Sherlock (of all things! *shudders*) but this year more than ever, they fucking missed the opportunity to reward and honor something very special. Something very important. I guess I should be thankful that they recognized The Normal Heart as Best TV Movie. Pardon me for not feeling very thankful right now. *fumes* (to be honest, I was convinced that this one would also go to Sherlock, because, hey, it's totally a TV Movie and not a Mini-Series, right??? *fumes some more*)


Going to rage myself to sleep now... (Can't believe I stayed up to watch this trainwreck.)

You're completely changing the design without prior notice, which results in LJ being down - again, without prior warning.

Now that the deed is done, there still is no official announcement.

You want feedback on what I think about the new design and the way you treat your paying customers?

In other words:

So, I'm working my way through all the feedback that kind readers left on my MMOM fics...

...and I'm suddenly thinking, "Hey, waitaminit, I already responded to this!"

And then I'm thinking, "Why's there suddenly an obvious response from me posted as comment to my own entry?!

And then I'm thinking, "Why are there only four comments (two of them from yours truly!) when gmail tells me there should be ten pieces of feedback?!"

Fuck you, LJ. You've deleted/lost/otherwise got rid of comments to my entries! I have no clue how far back this goes, because I began responding to feedback for my fic posted on May 7 (!!!) and I don't want to double-check even older posts. Either way, you suck, LJ. SUCK!

So, apologies to anyone who receives any responses again. I just want to be courteous and thank everyone for leaving feedback, and if LJ makes it look as if I haven't yet...well, prepare to be spammed. *helpless shrug*

I'm just glad that I use gmail to archive all of my feedback so I can go back and reread the kind comments there...since apparently LJ is completely incapable of leaving my entries alone. *fumes*

So, I wake up, grab my tablet and go online to check my emails and flist while still lounging in bed (dontcha love the 21st century?!) when I realize that something is missing. Or, more precisely, my flist isn't spammed with dozens of new entries as it usually is. Then I scroll down and see my own last entries...and in my A/N, the comm name for [ profile] mmom is striked through.

My first thought is that I was too stupid to get a four-letter name right, but then the lack of new entries suddenly makes sense.

I go to check out the comm in question, and lo and behold, it's suspended. SUSPENDED!!! Seriously, LJ?! For what?! Masturbation?! Last time I checked, adult content was still allowed here. Or did our Russian overlords change the rules?! Again?!

21 April 2013 @ 07:14 pm
So, I got spammed today.

LJ deemed it time to finally send me all those notifications I should've received in the last few days (or, more precisely, notifications from last weekend till about Thursday or so).

I did change my email addy in hopes that LJ likes gmail better than my previous addy, and it seemed to do the trick. I think. I hope. At least I started to receive notifications again (no clue if it's all notifications I should have received, of course...), so I'll go with that for now. And this morning, I found about 70 old notifications in my inbox. Joy.

LJ's been slow and acting erratic at times lately, so the notification issue was basically just the icing on the cake. It's so damn frustrating. If only all of my fave comms were on DW, I'd've moved there permanently a long time ago! *sulks*

Just a quick heads up:

LJ hasn't sent me any notification emails in at least three days.

I have no way of knowing if you commented on one of my posts or replied to one of my comments.

Worse still, I'm not informed if there are any entries waiting to be approved in the comms I'm modding.

I track certain comms and personal journals (the ones that are important to me) because oftentimes I don't have time to peruse my entire flist. That way, I at least know there's a new entry that's worth my time, and I check it out directly. That, also, doesn't work now, obviously.


I don't have time to spend hours on LJ due to RL issues, so I might miss new entries from you (the ones I'm stalking tracking), and I honestly don't have time to constantly double-check my own journal or any journal/comm I might have left a comment, just to see if someone responded. I'm sorry. Please rest assured I'm not ignoring you. I'm just...ignoring you. :(

*kicks LJ*

Once again, I'm not receiving all notifications, be it about your comments or new entries or whatever.

So I'm back to being pissed off.

Also, I realized that some of my icons are missing. Or, at least, not loading. Because LJ informs me that I'm almost at my limit (279 out of 280 possible icons are "uploaded" though a good 20 or so are clearly missing). I don't know if they're gone for good or just not loading at the moment because Stupid Goat Frank (TM) is once again nibbling on the wires and cables or whatever.

Either way, me no likey.

Apologies in advance for potential lack of responding. I just might not know you posted something. *despairs*

So, am I the only one who's wading through molasses while trying to do anything on LJ right now?

No, I'm sure I'm not.

And I have a pretty good idea why. *glares at Russia and Putin's less than legal election*
