Who made you get a LiveJournal? Post that person’s LJ, and if this meme spreads, see, you’ll eventually be able to click click click and see who your LJ grandfather, great grandmother, great great grandthing, etc, etc, is all the way back to the pioneer days.

I checked out LiveJournal in February 2001 as a result of email sent to the www.polyamory.org webmaster, which is me, telling me about the polyamory community on LiveJournal. I'm pretty sure that insomnia sent the email. At the time I joined, none of my in-person or net.friends were on LJ -- which was, in fact, the attraction at the time. (I was feeling disillusioned with my on-line communities.)

speaking of dissilussionment
That low fat diet thread never worked up much of a head of steam, and seems to be done.

I agree that online community is not at all a substitute for in-person community.

However, for a while now most of my in-person friends have come from online connections.

I could have a conversation with you about strategies for making in-person friends, because I've had similar problems. But I'm not sure you want that.
