at least 3 of you know why this has come up...

(update- answer the poll to be about YOU, the LJ-user, not ME, the poll giver)

Poll #99394 The LJ hookup poll

The following is the best answer about LJ's impact on my love life:

I've had sex with and/or a romance with someone I met initially via LJ.
14(33.3%)
There's one or more folks on LJ I'm after, but nothing's happened yet.
8(19.0%)
I'm married or otherwise off the market enough so that even the prescence of David Bowie on my friends list would not count as a temptation.
7(16.7%)
I would never use LJ as a medium to meet dates.
2(4.8%)
I would date someone I met via LJ, but there's no one I've found via LJ thus far that I have any interest in.
11(26.2%)

posting limits or, some people don't get it.

okay, so LJ brass dropped the ball in instituting posting limits without a lot of notice, and the angry comments in the LJ "news" community (http://www.livejournal.com/users/news/) reflect that. Also, I thought 3 posts per day for free users was a bit restrictive (since upped to 5). BUT:

check out this poll from LJ's architect of limits, Brad:

at press time, the answers to the question

Is 50 posts/day for non-free users reasonable?

is 273 No votes (7.7%)

and

Do you understand the need for limits, in some form?
is 118 No votes (3.3%)

Now, unless the people in question 1 are concerned about posts to communities (which would be severely impacted if limited to 50 posts a day, true)- what the hell is wrong with you people? If you can post 50 times in 24 hours, you either need a job, some sleep, or to get the hell away from Quizilla.

As for Question 2- What part of "things cost money, and someone has to pay the bill" don't you 118 people get? You must be the morons whose sub-literate LJs I always get when I hit the random button. Sigh.
