WTF

Here's what I don't understand.

I can't be bothered with the bullshit that happens on here 99% of the time. I let a lot of things roll right off my back. But seriously? Seriously. I just don't get some people. Why do you have to copy someone's journal. Why can't you just come up with your own shit. This chick who's not even on my friends list is copying and pasting my public entires, and claiming them as her own.

Handy Tweezers.
The Evil Centipedes.
Etc...
Even shit that I wrote in my old journal.

I left her a comment last night, telling her that I absolutely love her sense of humour, and that she should come and check out my journal sometime. Today, her journal's gone.


I refuse to lock all of my entries.







Try to copy and paste this one now.

Heh. Nevermind. I'm sure that you'll find a way around that too.



I'll be back later to read and comment and all that jazz. I'm running out of juice and my computer cord is at work.

That is totally FUBAR. Why would someone want to do something like that???

I have no idea. It's pretty damn stupid if you ask me.

I know. I hear about people stealing pictures of other people's children and passing them off as their own too.

For some reason, this doesn't surprise me. I just don't understand why someone would do that. It's kind of creepy.

I know. Some people really need to have their head examined.

God, I'm just going through the same thing right now and it's ten shades of fucking drama.

Good luck.

That's one way of looking at it.

How did you even find out about it? It seems so unlikely you'd ever come across it, yet you did!

It'd be interesting if someone did that with mine, not that I write anything interesting to begin with, but mine is like 99% public.

It was by total fluke. I was going through the old entries in one of the communities I'm in, and I saw this pic that I'd posted in my old journal. So I was reading the comments, and she wrote the exact same thing that I wrote in my journal, but she wrote it in the comment. It caught my attention. She used the exact same words that I did.

yikes, that's a bit creepy...if she returns, be sure to post the username so we can all go fuck with her :-)

LOL... I just had to add that if there's one thing LJ friend are good for... it's forming a posse. :-) That's hilarious.

But it's a very good idea though.

yeah, we're nothing if not loyal to our LJ-friends :-)

that and we need amusement, and trolls and stalkers are such good amusement :-)

Nah, she's not worth it. I don't even want to bother. Pissed off I am though.

But thanks for the support! Much appreciated ;)

Well... I know that this is a tired old expression, but "imataion is a form of flattery."

This person apparently does think you're smart and would like to be you!

But it's still NOT okay though.

I guess so, but I don't see it that way. I mean, if someone were friends with her and then friends with me, they'd end up thinking that I copied her.

Wow............ how did I flub up the spelling of imitation so badly? LOL!

Anyways, yes, that is a pain in the butt... trying to prove you're the original and not the copy-er. :-(
In the end though, the truth shall set you free. Yee Haw, I pulled another sorry old tired practically meaningless expression out of my butt. :-D

trying to prove you're the original...

It would come down to whose post is timestamped/dated earlier. But what would be the point?

She can set her date for an earlier time.


I really shouldn't even bother with this...

Oh! You can change the date of an entry? I didn't know this (guess after 2.5 months I'm still an LJ newb!).

So now what do we have to do? Copywrite our LJ entries??? LMAO!

Aug. 29th, 2007 04:00 pm (UTC)
You're a total newbie!! Yeah you can change it. It's on top of the page when you're posting. You change the date, and check the box that says "date out of order" or whatnot. And tada!

Nah, we just lock them. But my sister-in-law reads mine and she doesn't have an account here so I don't want to lock them, you know?

Aug. 29th, 2007 05:32 pm (UTC)
Ahhh, then I guess this is how people change the date to like 2030 when they make their journals friends only. Doh! Still a newb!

Aug. 29th, 2007 07:00 pm (UTC)
Yep. I have an entry on here like that too. I have it on private though. I have a couple of counters and html on it. It's easier to find that way.

WTF is right! What purpose does it serve to copy someone's journal? What would someone get out of it? Is their own life so boring they can't come up with ANYTHING to write about? Maybe they should just stick with MySpaz!

I'm stalking her now. She deleted it for now. I'm waiting for her to start it up again.

Keep all of us informed - we'll spam her to death or something!
