Hello, I'm Shay, I've had a perm account since last year, nice to meet other folks with chemically treated hair similar accounts.

Probably many of you know, but there's a huge discussion about LJ becoming more like MySpace and trying to appeal to a 'younger' crowd.

You can read about it, and a petition, two entries down.

Now, this affects perm members because of loss of service, yes, but I'm also wondering- will they allow transfers between LJ and Vox with a transfer token? Hmmm...

Call me cynical if you like, but I have to wonder if anyone actually bothered to proof-read that petition, or ask a couple of simple questions. Like, for example, why do they need the email addresses? If people are posting from their accounts that's surely sufficient proof of ID. Or am I missing something?

If I was a spammer and wanted an easy way to harvest 5000+ email addresses that'd be a pretty good thread to visit.

That thought occurred to me as well.

That's why I put my email as [at] and [dot] instead of the real deal.

Well, I wouldn't call loading 199 pages easy, but I take your point.

There's also a poll here:

That would be the main reason I'm not signing.
