Now I've done it.

So, lrc was waxing lyrical about a certain froup here, and opined:

There are times that I miss having a community of literate misanthropes who would write scathing commentary on the world in which we live. I even briefly considered trying to recreate adfp on lj, starting a community called "rants".

And autopope replied It's not a bad idea. In another place, cat_herder urged me to go for it, and lrc had already declared he had a lack of time for such things, so I went ahead and did it. And if you think it was a stupid idea, well don't let the doorknob hit you on the way out.

Other than the three of us, how many peevers are on LJ? I wonder how many lurkers that we didn't even know are.
There's yourself, and myself, and autopope and, cat_herder. I'm debating whether to mention the existence of this community to jpallan. And Peggy Currid is looking at starting an LJ - we could invite the others on the list, too.
It's me, Peggy. I don't like this interface because it takes me more than 5 minutes to figure out how to do anything. That, plus my fear of looking stoopit, will force me not to do much here until I get a feel for things.

Interestingly, I find this doing a Google search on something else, four years after the fact. Did the community ever take off? I'd be interested in lurking in a community of peevers.
I do have to wonder where we're all going to find the time to stay on top of these things. But I guess there's no harm in allowing a livejournal to lapse into a sort of pathetic obsolescence.

I can think of a few things that I could let lapse to give this venue a shot.
I was thinking of the livejournal page I created to make this account, not this forum. But I doubt you're going to get the more hardassed peevers in here. Using a web forum is a sign of weakness, you know.
I think in order to have livejournal work, you need to have a working email address. That filters out the trolls and 'bots. This is, as Martha would say, "A good thing."
There are also non-web lj clients as well.

It'll be interesting to see how this format works out.
theferrett has some entertaining rants in his lj. But, damn the guy needs to get a job, I linked to him as a friend and he must write 5,000 words a day in his journal.
well, NNTP does seem to have become a bit stagnant.

For some unknown reason this morning, I decided to check
if the meaning I know for "ADFP" had made google-page-1.

But below the Peruvian FA and a French publisher...
