OK, so I'm browsing another forum, look at a persons sig, and they have a link to their live journal. Well, I've seen this several timez now, but I've ignored it. Finally, I gave up and clicked the damn link. WTF?! What is with these things? You go on their and broadcast what happened that day or whatever. I personally find it lame. Why would a person want to do this? What a person writes in their journal is private information. And, if it's not, then we all wish it would be. I don't care where you have a pimple or what your mom said to you that made you cry for hours on end.

If you have a live journal, why? Why would you put that stuff on the internet for others to read?

Unless you were gonna make shit up...

"Today, journal, on my way to work, i saw a woman being attacked by a dodo. Now, normally i wouldn't intervene, but on this occasion, i thought the girl was good looking..."

"So, i quickly ran to a conveniently nearby pet shop and bought a large bird cage. I ran over to the woman, and scooped up the dodo into the cage."

"She was so grateful, she gave me her phone number and said to come around tonight."

"So anyway, i went to work, and i thought about this dodo i still had with me... now, a dodo, journal, is extinct. So guess what - I SOLD MINE ON EBAY!! - so there i was, with a mound of cash, and this great chick's phone number."




Anyone care to finish this Live (fake) Journal??????

I have never seen quite such a wonderful journal story. :thumbsup: Rep. :)

Curiosity.
Yeah, I don't see how that can keep such a thing in business. I haven't clicked one since.

To discover a vulnerability in Xanga and steal my ID!

Because Xanga, Inc. didn't heed the warnings given by the GNAA.

True story...

Well Awaken, if you look just a little bit closer...

...what WTF is for some people ? Why do you post in "Life Sucks" ?...eh ?

Simple answer - some people are using web forums, as a substitute of a journal.

It is just some inner need to post shit about your poor self, even if you know, that noone will read it. Maybe a way of relieving your stress ? It's sure cheaper than a therapist, isn't it ? And if it helps...why not.

Bibas, they're called friends. :thumbsup:

Plus, you can write it out on paper. :thumbsup:

Good call removing the flame, skiffie.

Also, Bibas, on wtf.com, we can reply. Get other people's opinions. :)

Awaken :
1. You can reply to journals as well (comments)
2. What if a journalist haven't got any friends ?
3. It's way faster, to type it on keyboard.
4. What if someone's don't give a fuck about other peoples opinion ?

Aw-fucking-right. Junglizm as always spoiled the whole fun, with one pic :/
But seriously, it's very sad that this picture shows 99% of truth about livejournals.
