Community Background and Lineage

February 10, 2006 - Several LiveJournal-ers with Permanent Accounts decide to band together in an uprising and revolt after suffering grave injustice and loss of benefits. One complication stood in the way, threatening to smother the emerging rebellion -- there was no place to rally. Searching high-and-low, it was discovered there were zero communities specifically for LiveJournal-ers with Permanent Accounts to discuss issues of importance relevant to their social status.

A daring suggestion was made to migrate to GreatestJournal, and with that a community was born (on GreatestJournal): ljpermacct ljpermaccts But GreatestJournal sucks like a Hoover, and since many involved parties were unlikely to frequent GreatestJournal, the community was syndicated here on LiveJournal so that when posts were made, members would not miss entries of import: gj_ljpermaccts

Thus completes the first half of the circle.

The second half of the circle is incomplete, as of this moment; it will involve creating a syndicated account on Greatest Journal from this community's RSS feed, then creating a syndicated feed here on LiveJournal pulling from the RSS feed of the Greatest Journal account that pulls from this community's feed. A perfect circle! This can not currently be done, however, because GreatestJournal really does suck something horrible, and the syndicated feed can not be created, as of this writing.
