About the content strike  
I don't know if it affected LJ, but it certainly affected me -- I about went nuts with the not even logging in. I suspect that this means I'm spending too much time on LJ and should find some additional outlets for my life.

Much the same conclusion to which I was unwillingly brought, dear Janet --

I recognize all the classic signs of addiction when I experience them in this much-abused flesh... [grin]

Or it could be that LJ is where most of your social outlet is. This is not a problem - I fail to see why it would be. The only problem I see with it is the very stuff that the strike was made of: corporate idiots screwing around with the way we do things on LJ making it less habitable and comfortable for those of us who actually build the communities and social networks here.

I know that I am here far too often. Other outlets are brief and intermittent.

Thoughts
So, people who disliked the effects of the strike could help encourage LJ owners to respect user needs, by complaining about the strike and asking the owners to stop doing things that make people want to quit writing LJ content. They won't care if quit unless they know the *demand* for our content is strong.

I want to add you as a friend! Cymru Llewes pointed me to your journal (in re a problem I'm having with Sears Home Delivery). Why do I want to add you? Other than the obvious we don't live nearly as far apart as most of my lj friends:

"Q: How many surrealists does it take to change a lightbulb?
A1: One to put the giraffe in the bathtub, and one to paint the tractor a bright happy shade of A-flat-minor."

And your Cousin Ivan icon. That is one of the best lines in that book! (Of course, she comes out with 9 million best lines in every book she writes...)
