This Journal Is Now Friends Only


I don't really have specifications as to the kind of people I do or don't want on my flist. Friendships can obviously develop for all sorts of reasons! However, we might get along better if you:

*share common interests with me
*are on the left side of the political spectrum
*are able to at least politely scroll past the kind of long, tedious rambling I am sometimes prey to - and now you can't say I didn't warn you :P
*like to comment, for comments are shiny

I usually write about my life more than I write about any specific subject, academic or fandom-y. But you should still probably be aware that I'm a huge history nerd and absolutely passionate about the French Revolution. As far as the telly goes, I love Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Blackadder and occasionally post about those. I wouldn't describe myself as being active in any fandom - I sort of just lurk at the back of some of the main communities that deal with my interests. The notable exception is [ profile] revolution_fr, which I mod. But then, 'French Revolution' isn't exactly a fandom. XD

I read a lot, watch quite a few movies, enjoy writing but am seldom able to motivate myself do it, and make icons whenever the urge strikes me.

Overall, I think I'm a relatively easy person to get along with; I'm not the sort to go around picking fights, looking to be offended, or anything like that. Well. As long as my favorite revolutionaries' postmortem honor isn't at stake. :P I kid. Sort of.

Anyway, yes. If you want to know anything else, just check my userinfo or ask me.

Hi - can I friend you? I love your French Rev site and you have Burn Gorman as your icon-thing. Unless it's you and you just look very like Burn Gorman.

Hello, fellow Robespierrist! So few in the world it seems. I'm new to LiveJournal and in reading the French Revolution site here, I feel I've found my people!

Ooh, it's alway nice to meet more people interested in the French Revolution! I've added you as a friend. :)

Right, I virtually know nothing about the French Revolution because my grade nine teacher was awful, but I wouldn't mind learning about the French Revolution at ALL so feel free to rant.

BUT I do adore House,(Hugh Laurie ...just...I have no words to describe him) the Pirates of the Carribean, Johnny Depp, and have just recently over the summer discovered Dr. Who. Unfortunately where I live, there is no channel that has Dr. Who shows unless my family pay for the overly expensive package of several million other channels we don't need. (This goes for Torchwood as well)
..and I'm a friend of dragon_tearz (I just recently got a LJ account and don't know how to link you to her journal)
so please friend me?

Hi, this is [ profile] arcueid under a new username. My friends list ended up getting purged through the rename process, and since I didn't keep a connection with my old name, I'm off everybody's friends list. If it's okay, may I be added back? ♥

Of course! :3 ♥

I am writing to you with a request re the community. The community's rules clearly state (#1) that bashing other members is not allowed. Could you please look at some of the comments made on a recent thread regarding the BBC documentary? One poster, who seems to be new to the community, shared his/her comments to which another member replied with "By the way, if you have anything good to add up to contribute to the debate, or, I don't know, to this community at all -- who are you? -- please do so." I personally believe that this amounts to "bashing" another person. Nobody should have to justify who they are in order to be able to comment in the community. Also, we shouldn't fear that we will be personally attacked or accused of not contributing sufficiently or not having "anything good to add up to". Otherwise, this forum is no longer enjoyable for any of us. I would very much like to share my comments, but for my part, I don't feel like being pilloried if I don't agree with everyone on everything. And to be honest, this episode is just the latest example of an increasingly hostile tone on the community. Could you please intervene and restore the debate to a civilized and non-personal tone? As you will see, I have tried to explain this to the offender in question, unsuccessfully.

A Respectful Community Member

I really like your posts on revolution_fr and in maelicia's journal. And I fulfill at least two of your conditions: I share your interest in FR and I am a leftist. D'you mind befriending me?

Hi! I'm a member of your French Revolution community. This is a simple question since it seems there is no other way I could contact you. I was wondering why is the last post gone? What was so controversial about it that it had to be deleted? Was it my reply or the post itself? I'm confused and curious to know the reason(s).

Date: 2010-12-17 02:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]

I actually never saw the post itself on the community (I just read it in my e-mail when I got a notification that the comm had a new post) nor your response to it, and I didn't know it had been deleted; I'm quite tied up with finals at the moment, sadly! So it must have been the original poster who deleted it. Considering the content of the post, my only guess as to why they might have done so is maybe that they were afraid of the teacher or some other school official finding out that they went online to ask for help on an assignment? Seems rather paranoid, but there are people like that.

Sorry I can't really do much to help with the confusion!

hi! :)
Fellow leftist with an interest on the French Revolution (I believe we crossed each other on the community or through some common lj-friends).

I don't post too much, but I love to read and comment :).

Shall we friend each other? :)
