Green Room - Week 1 - Day 7

Those of us watching the situation play out in Crimea have been waiting to see what the next step was going to be. In the wee hours of the morning, something happened that I'm not sure anyone was expecting.

The Russian Livejournal Support Techs annexed parts of Tumblr, Facebook and a few SubReddits.

Declaring this "the liberation of terrorities stolen from us years ago" Livejournal has already announced that they have started a resettlement plan for the LJ "anon communities". They will be moved to the newly vacated portions of Facebook where they will be forced to log in and comment under their real names, so that they will be held socially responsible for the things that they say.

There is no word on how this will impact the long-running civil war between the LJ factions of "People Who Think the Internet Should Be Used to Go After Everything and Everything, Except Themselves" and "Social Diversity Warriors Who Haven't Lived Outside the Academic Environment". These bitter foes have been at it for years, cutting large swaths through the internet, and dragging the majority of folks (who are somewhere in the middle) into their battles. The rest of the population of LJ is waiting to see if that cools with the new acquisitions or the conflict continues to spread.

Tumblr will continue as the image sharing portion of LJ, while no one is really sure what use Reddit will be, but they are sure that people will still post there anyway - as they are further brought into what people are calling "The Second Livejournal Empire"!

***

While we are waiting for that to play out, we have our own empire building to do within these very halls! Some will live! Some will die be eliminated!! Who will it be? We will know tonight! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/716621.html Get out there and support your favorites, and let people know what they might be missing!

(Note for newbies: Within a half hour/hour of those results being posted, the Week 2 Topic and Work Room will be released. Just a heads up)
