I know 'screwups' have happend over several managements, but seriously.. how many times does LiveJournal get to say "oops, we fucked up, we'll do better next time"? I was tempted to go through the past news postings and count, but then I'd have to take my socks and shoes off.

Nothing spanks of arrogance more than "But to make our intentions clear, LiveJournal needs to develop: we don’t intend to undermine the culture of LiveJournal, we intend to invest in it." coming from 'the group'. I read it as "Hey, we bought this bitch, we're going to make money off it how we see fit. Take it or leave it." On one hand, that's their right. On the other, it still pisses me off. We've all made an investment in LiveJournal.
