User Rep election turned into Anti-fandom war :(

Hey guys,

Have you voted for the User Representative on the LJ Advisory board? It's just been turned into an ugly anti-fandom drive by one of the candidates (jameth ) and his supporters. Just take a look at the later comments the Election thread itself is getting *shakes head*. You can also read more about their mass bigotry at the following links:

(thanksminniemax , jasmasson , catdancerz for these)

Urge you to please PLEASE go here and Cast your Vote if you haven't done it already. Do read the profiles of all candidates running before you do. I personally voted for the 3 candidates who are also active members of fandom - legomymalfoy , rm and vichan in that order.

legomymalfoy has experience working with the LJ support and abuse groups, has an established rapport with the LJ staff, as well as the respect of everyone in fandom. Her LJ is locked right now because of the massive attacks jameth and his gang are attempting to launch at her.

Whoever your candidate of choice may be, please don't let it be that anti-fandom asshole. Go on people - VOTE VOTE VOTE!

After reading legomymalfoy's statement and hearing her idea's i've got to say that all in all she's the better candidate and I'm really pulling for her to win.

Legomymalfoy 08! Wishing you all the best: fandoms.

Exactly! It's turned into a fandom candidate versus an anti-fandom candidate debate.. so really there was no choice left anyway heh.

Although really, fandom shouldn't really have anything to do with how lj is run. Even if we do own it.
% of LJ made of up fandom: roughly 70%

:D Go us!

What I don't understand is why everyones making such a big stink about her being on the abuse team. Yes they fucked up with the strike out, but she's part of fandom too! She was just as much at risk as the rest of us.

They're clutching at straws sweetie. I personally think its a good thing she has this rapport with LJ. The wank is under the assumption that interests of Abuse team will always oppose interests of users. But I think there was so much more damage the abuse team could have done to fandom during the strikethrough, but that didn't happen. I'd like to believe LMM's opinions and inputs might have had something to do with it.

*waves*

VOTED!

I've been away for a while and this is the first I heard about the vote. It took me a while to read up on each, but I more or less came up with the same three as you. :D

Rock On!

Good on ya sweetheart! And I believe we're winning now :)

I had a read of the profiles and I came up with the same candidates as you :). Legomymalfoy seems like a level headed person as is rm :). Legomymalfoy had me when she said she's not wanting to be on the advisory board to push forward her agenda. A neutral player is good to have. Thank you sweetie for providing the links :D

Same here! That's the first thing that jumped out at me because while I want someone on the board to "understand" us, I don't necessarily need them to push our agenda.. *shrugs*. I don't see a need for that. But having an obnoxious antisocial element like jameth on that post would be very very bad for us. So I'm glad LMM is winning :)

Definitely, people who are on advisory boards need to be open minded and not judgmental. It is good that she's leading :).

OMG!

I voted days ago, but I must admit I am addicted to the wank of the whole election… Who is this jameth person, anyway? Sounds like the kind of guy who beat geeks up for fun in highschool… *looks around, expecting seizure-inducing post anytime now*

Anyway, thanks for the links hun. The last two were new to me, and most informative.

This jameth person is an asshole that's all we need to know! Can you believe the whole seizure episode? I'm so appalled that people would think it's okay to do something like that *shakes head*

Good that you voted already sweetie. LMM is winning :)

I know, how crazy is that? Attack people, to the point of actually putting them in danger, because you don’t like what they’ve said about you? Yeah, clearly that’s the way to go. Maybe I should go change my vote, because I know that’s the kind of person I want defending my freedom of speech. Not. *rolls eyes*

Beh, I’m just ranting. It’s nice to read from you, in any case :D

Look at the anonymous comment left at the bottom of this post.. *shakes head and sighs*


I went over there and voted a while back.

Good on ya sweetie :) We need more ppl from fandom to show their clout.

ok - I'll admit to stupidity, which may in itself count me out of voting!!!! I've read, and read, and stuffed if I can see the drop-down window to vote! Is it just me, can someone tell me where is, please!
R (lj user idiot!)

Yep.. that's the link Leeds just posted! You should see 3 droddowns there with the names of candidates. Let me know if you still have problems hon.

HA! Winning now... hopefully

*fingers crossed* I went through rm's profile too.. even if LMM gets eliminated due to the allegations (false as they are), we still have hope with this second candidate.

Anti-fandom?

*Chuckles*

Can I start an anti-Jameth-and-whoever-doesn't-get-the-meaning-of-respecting-other-people-breathing vote?

Tell that guy to mind his own business, or throw an anti-violence/rape/discrimination vote or anything else that's really productive.

Actually you're right hon! He's not just anti fandom, he's pretty much antisocial and not good for anybody !! :)

The guy's just a sore loser, he doesn't deserve any more time or effort on our part *shakes head*

Okay, my head is obviously in the sand as I didn't know about the vote until now. So - followed your links right over there and did my thing. The results look very encouraging for our side.

Hee :D Good on ya sweetie! They are wondering how was it LMM's numbers jumped overnight to overtake jameth.. it is because all of fandom woke up and realized the person jameth really is.. and then word just spread through flists and posts like this one. Pretty neat huh? :)

Hee, hee... the pen is mightier etc! Or in this case, the keyboard, but you get the idea.

Voted!
DOWN WITH ANTI FANDOM ASSHOLES AND OTHER UNDESERVED INTOLLERANT...
[rest of rant not fit for human consumption]

Haha.. thanks hon :) I wasn't making a big deal about it until that camp started making attacks on LMM. Now I'm convinced we must do everything possible to keep him out of any positions of power or influence whatsoever. Hell I'm not even sure how much power and influence the user rep will have in the first place. But I'm sure HE doesn't deserve it.
