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.
