First, if anyone’s got one and is feeling charitable, I’d love an invite code. If you are being charitable, you can use my firstname.lastname@example.org address.
Second, I wanted to just point out that despite Dreamwidth’s promises to support open expression, diversity and open operations, they still have a pretty broad set of rights they’ve reserved [...]
This post used to contain a large round-up of archival links to folks writing about the Wiscon Troller, a woman who, in 2008, attended the Wiscon feminist science fiction convention, got in a useless fight with someone there, and posted fat-shaming and geek-shaming pictures of some folks with whom she took issue.

I’m preparing to delete my old LJ posts.
I have just exported via LJ’s export utility, all months since I started (2003-07), as XML. I plan to use LJArchive (requires .NET) to download all posts and comments, and I will probably also wait until I have made a PDF-based LJBook as well (and may donate [...]
