The LiveJournal Project: July 2003 (Part 2 of 2)

I haven’t picked this up in some months, but this morning seemed like a good enough time to revisit The LiveJournal Project.  In short: When I started blogging, it was on a website called LiveJournal (yes – the same website for those of you that were paying close attention at the beginning of The Social Network.)  Last year I imported all the old posts into this blog for posterity.  The thing is, most of my LiveJournal posts were locked (aka “made private”) so I have started going back and unlocking them one at a time.

The process has been fun for me (and my friends who were around then) as we revisit the old days of convention fandom and the OMGDRAMAZ that ensued in the early days of online interaction.

Here’s the rest of July 2003:

Just because – here’s the photo from that last post:

    Was there a good reason to unbury Dade’s dispute with you?

    At this point, as Dade is not a figure in Florida Anime fandom, it could be potentially libelous.

    At the least it’s one-sided and out of context.

    @Dave: Your comment indicates that I sought out Dade’s argument specifically. I did not. I am merely going back through the old LJ posts and unlocking them/tagging them.

    From my journal.

    On my blog.

    The posts from Dade’s drama back then just happen to take place on the month that was up next for me to go through (July 2003.)

    As far as the posts being libelous… the content of these posts are nothing new. The information has been on the Internet for quite some time. Any damage can be attributed to *his* actions since (if you read) I was reacting to someone (him) that I had thought dormant in fandom for a couple of years at that point. (In short: he brought me up; not vice versa.)

    Hell. This one is just a reprint of his own words:

    So it goes. 🙂

    As I don’t have an intimate understanding of how the software behind your blog works:

    Is it possible for you to either unpost or not post in the first place, these type of entries from way back when: if you in fact chose to?

    @Dave: Correct. I can unlock them/lock them. I have yet, though, to come across any that have remained locked. As we all know, I’ve always been pretty vocal and open about things.
