Really cranky this morning

Really really cranky. I live in Canada. It's not my election, and it's not my country, but media-wise, you wouldn't know it at the moment.

Anyway: Because I'm cranky, I'm once again advocating the fact that lj-cuts are your friend. Or they're my friend. Honestly, I wouldn't have flisted people if I weren't interested in at least half of what they have to say -- but I'm trimming people who insist I see 100% of what they have to say 100% of the time, because. Well. Look at the subject.

I'm with you on cut tags. There are many people who have unwisely vented in a place where I could see them, and whose opinion of my opinions is now so obvious I can no longer read them.

I have no problem with people spewing. They should realize that if they spew publically, in a way that no one can NOT see it, that the spew will have consequences. :,

Ummm. How to say this.

I don't actually care what the content of the one- four screen post is. I hate it when people don't use cut-tags, but I'm cranky and tired today, so today, I'm doing something about them. I don't hate the person; I realize that not all readers have my reading protocols.

I don't care if what's on the screen is pages and pages of lush, fabulous prose or hysterically funny commentary (although I lean toward the latter); I don't care if it's inspirational and warm and human. I, in fact, don't care if it's political drivel.

I just don't like to have to scroll through screens of something I probably wouldn't be reading. No, let me change that: I don't like to scroll through the ones I would read otherwise.

Everyone should do as they please with their LJs; it's their own space, their own word-corner. I should have just cut the list a bit, instead of ranting, because by telling people to use cut-tags, I -am- stepping over a boundary. But it's not any fault of their content. It's just me.

And. Ummm. I don't think I've ever seen you use a cut-tag.
