Regrets, you may have had a few...  
On one of the recent news posts, a user said they regretted their friend buying a perm account for them (for reasons that were not entirely clear). I was wondering if, on reflection, any of you regretted getting a perm account(s)/having one bought for you?

Poll #1169936 Perm accounts

Do you regret getting a perm account?

I want to vote in the poll, but I don't want my vote to mean anything (aka Ron Paul option)

Edit: If you do regret it, comment why!

I assume Ron Paul is someone running in the US presidential elections?

If so, the UK version is "Liberal Democrats option" *G*

Your assumption is correct. A fringe candidate with some very odd ideas.

I don't regret getting it when I did - I sure as hell wouldn't get one now!

I'm not too happy with some of the ways the business has gone, but I don't regret having it. I'm hoping to see the website turn around in the next couple years, though. I still have faith, and I have no reason not to stick around to see how things turn out.

Not in the least. I have trouble even understanding why someone would.

I don't regret my perm account at all. I didn't buy it myself, and I'm extremely grateful to those who gave it to me.

Well, I used LJ to keep in touch with my friends but, ironically, about the time I bought my perm account, alot of my friends either stopped using LJ, or only read it like once a month. :P So I'm stuck here, essentially.

As someone else mentioned I don't regret getting mine when I did (2001 :)), definitely got my money out of this one :), but I wouldn't for the life of me get one now.

If anyone wants to get ride of their perm account, I'd gladly accept it as a gift :-p

No regrets here.

anyone that "regrets" or is terribly upset with livejournal needs to consider getting a life.

i've not run into any issues where i've needed to file a support ticket while i've been a perm member.

The only issues I've filed support tickets for since even getting my paid account (before I upgraded to permanent) are edits to syndicated feed URLs that moved.

I got my perm account for free for patching bugs in LiveJournal, but nothing they've done would make me regret having bought one had I bought one. I just don't see what a lot of the fuss is about, to be honest. Sure, they've done some kinda dumb stuff, but nothing to get up in arms about.

Mine was a gift. I'll only regret having it when/if the person who gifted it to me becomes dissatisfied with LJ, if that makes sense.

If I were as pissed off at LJ as I am with my government (US), I might regret it. But compared to the stupidity I see other places. LJ is OK by me. Now, if the Russian takeover extends to th US government, than might be a problem. OTOH, they can take George and welcome.

And for goodness sake, resist the temptation to turn this into a political wrangle. It's just a stupid LJ comment.

I regret because...

1.) I could have used the money elsewhere at this time
2.) I'm not particularly happy with how things are turning out with SUP, but at the same... I'm not about to give up my account either. LJ is basically my online drug. :\
