An L.J. deathwish?

O.K. ... now I am a creature of inertia, I don't like changing unless I have to and I don't like systems that I'm used to not working for me. As such (and as an "early adopter"/"permanent account") it would take a hell of a lot to sour me on LiveJournal ... but, damn it sure does seem like they're trying to be dysfunctional!

I had two comments each on two of my posts this afternoon, and I got only ONE of those in my mail box. Then, when trying to comment on others' journals, 2 out of 3 times I got funky error messages about the damn server's availability. All this while the official "status" thing says everything's just peachy keen!

I mean, come on ... it's not like L.J. had some huge jump in usership that would be stressing their systems ... and while I understand that moving things is a good way of invoking the FuckUp Fairy, we're still talking about X-oranges going where X-oranges are supposed to have gone, right?

This is the first time that I've really felt that L.J. is the "bastard step-child" of the Six Apart family. This is the first time that I've felt that Brad is uninvolved, leaving the details of L.J.'s transfer to underlings ... underlings who have no "stake" in L.J. and are just "doing their jobs" as directed by the Six Apart brass.

Dammit ... I feel hurt by the amount of time things have been fucked up here ... it's like those currently responsible for L.J. neither appreciate its users or really care about it as an entity. Frankly, I get the distinct "vibe" that those handling the L.J. transfer think "you get what you pay for" and that as a free service (despite the fact that many of us ARE paying or have paid for it) L.J. users should be happy with whatever limited functionality dribbles down to our desktops.
