Apparently comma-separated lists are too complicated now, so we give you checkboxes to ask if you're interested in emo or snowboarding:

Wow.

Also note the lack of <label> tags.

"laughing" was also cut I hear, despite being popular.

Couldn't you put the missing tags in, being in charge of LiveJournal and all?

You should combine the two and start off an incredible snowboarding revolution.

I can't think of anything more soul-crushing than a flood of weeping snowboarders with bad haircuts.

It also goes off the side of the window if you're like me and have windows that are somewhere between 800x600 and 1024x768.

The next step should be to only allow certain interests-- get rid of the text box altogether. Also, all users who have not previously specified their interest in "furries" will be updated to include that by default. It can be disabled through the profile after the switch goes live. ;)

I'm glad "they" still let us type in new interests. The next natural step is a bunch of []Other: ______ fields.

Now you made me change my interests so I don't have any of those extra popular ones.

Style is much better now.

I got confused when the checkbox JS didn't insert the items in alphabetical order, though.
