So this is my Livejournal. I had over five years of stories and belligerent caterwauling on here, under a paid account, but then some jagoffs hacked it and deleted everything. Now Livejournal refuses to restore any of it, I guess because they don't backup their servers? Either that or they're just assholes. I prefer to assume incompetence over maliciousness.|
I know there's caches out there on the wayback machines and all that but that's beside the point.
You guys this is what happened to me.
There will be more stories and caterwauling, and it will make people very happy.
Sue. You should sue. As a web-based personality, this represents your livelihood and marketing. Do you know how they got your password?
It is so awful and it makes me want revenge against LJ. They totally have backups.
Welp, stop having a paid account. What is it good for, having a rss import that lets people read your content on livejournal instead of on your site? Sounds to me like paying them for providing content.
My sympathies. You going to be staying here with LJ, or moving on?
I know this is closing the barn door after the horses are gone, but for other people reading this, maybe consider using a backup tool (Windows)
for your journal. This one
is for Linux/Mac.
That's completely awful. One hundred and billion percent. I wish there was some way we could get even.
Your story has inspired me to back up my livejournal...
I'm sorry, Jeff! What a set of tools :(
You don't use LJ a lot lately, do you? Why do you still pay for an account? I do feel they didn't give you proper support.

You pay for it a year at a time, and last year I was using it a bit more. I kinda thought I was paying for this to not happen.

I am sorry this happened to you.
If those people were going to hack your LJ for spam purposes, they didn't have to delete everything. D: Even if they didn't want your actual entries distracting from their nefarious purposes they could have made them all private. Ugh. Of course this is coming from someone who would never hack somebody's LJ in the first place so and I'm rambling now.
Again I'm sorry this happened to you. Whoever did that is a real special kind of jerk. He probably has truck nuts.

Also I would like to say, and I don't know if this will matter any or even if it should, but ever since I have been reading Wigu and then Overcompensating, on the rare instance I have felt the need to comment, it has been on here. When your LJ crashed I signed up to Twitter to say that I was sorry but I couldn't figure out how to make it so I said it to you and not to the internet at large so I just gave up.
LJ is run by shitballs. Literally. They're balls of shit with weird arms made of toothpicks. I've seen a clip of them on YouTube. Disgusting.
Anyway, keep pestering them and threaten to, I dunno, invade Russia or some shit.

So, how long until you start hacking Russian websites to put up links to Topatoco products as some awesome form of revenge?
