woot!! free is good!  
Well finally...

Every time LJ goes down, the "paid" users get credit or time... but the "permanent" accounts are pretty much S.O.L. since it's tough to add 3 days on to forever...
Last time it happened, I suggested in the news thread that maybe a free v-gift or two would be the way to go for perm accounts.

Well, now they're giving all paid (and perm!) users 1 free v-gift... so I consider myself recompensed for the recent downtime.  And I'm perfectly okay with the benefit going to non-perm paid members too - because it increases the odds I might get one! heh.

Details from the news post:

Paid members can send a free v-gift

We're celebrating all the new gifts by giving each Paid member a $1 coupon to spend on a v-gift for a friend. Just choose your v-gift in the gift shop and then look for the dropdown menu under the "Have a gift certificate?" section at the bottom of the page. Select your $1 coupon and click the "Use" button next to it, then hit the "check out" button to send your free v-gift.

Indeedy. mehitabelmmoss brought it up here, with a very polarizing discussion to follow in the comments. (No one really seemed "meh" on the idea...they either loved it or the hated it.)

That was me! I guess someone pays attention. And it was a rousing discussion.
Now as to whom to gift w/ mine.........

I'll meh on it. I don't think much of the rather ugly v-gifts, and have no desire to get or give one, as I spend almost 'never' looking at profiles, and I'm probably not the only one out there.

Actually, giving us extra time credit that we may gift to someone else might be nice.

Probably because the 'meh' people were so 'meh' that they did not bother to reply... ;-p
