Some of the responses in one of my threads got me wondering. How many people here are on Livejournal (http://www.livejournal.com/)? Just wondering.

Count me as one. I'm suprised at all the "friends" I've met on livejournal that are into guns. It's pretty cool. Oh, and my user name is "Petard_hoister"

Actually I think I found out about THR/TFL from there...

Yup, some of us spend time there. ;)

We don't all post a lot. :o

Mine is "haschen" but I don't quite talk about guns that often, more a way so friends don't always have to ask my how I'm doing and get a 10 minute response.

Not very many!!! One time I posted something about guns and I got so many comments I landed on some website called LJDrama which is run from the UK.

I would guess about 95% of the users on LJ are a bunch of libs/commies.

Me too. Same screen name. (friends only though, so you won't see much.)

It's a pretty good site. I've met some good people there, even traveled around the country to meet a couple of them.

Same name.

And I'm not a commie, Sturmruger, nor am I 5% of LJ. Trouble with LJ is, a majority of LJ'ers are *too young to own guns*.

Mfree I am sure age has a good bit to do with it. I have met quite a few of my wife LJ friends in person and was suprised that most of them were over 25. They were all rabidly antigun.

Sturmruger, I am not a commie. I am a liberal, though, (As in firearms liberty.)

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

Perhaps Thomas Jefferson was a commie?

I've been on LJ for four years, under the same name. About 50% of my posts are friends-only, but the rest are fair game. I am proud of the fact that my LJ is workplace friendly and rated PG-13, unlike some others to which I've been unfortunate enough to click-through.

I save all of my gun-related rants for this forum, however.

Neither 'guns', nor 'firearms' nor 'shooting' appears on the top interests list (http://www.livejournal.com/interests.bml?view=popular). 2.6 million active users, and the least popular item on the page has 16,000+ people interested in it, makes gun types much less than 5% of the population.

I'm on there (http://livejournal.com/users/sigstoat/), though I don't write in English.

I hate computers, I just spent fifteen minutes trying to go in and read in the "armed citizen" community, and I feel like I have been swimming in mud :fire: ,,, I guess it was not meant to be.

That might be because we put down other stuff. Here are some of mine:.45s, 7.62x39, 7.62x54r, aviation ordnance, bumpfiring, ecm, exit wounds, imbiber beads, m904e, ma deuce, offhand shooting,


On top of that, you will get people who put 1911, M1911, 1911A1, Colt45, 45,45s, .45, .45s, .45ACP, etc, etc, etc all for 1911s. So it isn't going to show up on the top interests.

Doctorogenki here, I'm on guns all the time.

LJ is also where I first started talking to Oleg.

I'm on there as SMJAYMAN, and I co-moderate the guns community. There are a bunch of antis on LJ, but there's also a bunch of whiney 15 year old kids who don't know anything. Figure there's a lot of overlap there....

LJ, being pretty much totally devoid of a given subject, is bound to be a cross section of the people who are given to this kind of activity... meaning liberals, conservatives, gunners and antis, people who get out of bed on the left or the right side... split as it is in the rest of society.

hmmmmp....

Never heard of live journal until you guys brought it up so figured it probably would be worth a look.

:D Geeeeeeez! There's a lot of diversity of thought there - interesting in some cases - not so in others. And the quality... ranges from the illiterate to the intellectual.

There's so much diverse content that going back will be added to my list of things to do.

But the format makes me wonder :confused: - I saw no ads - so who the hell is paying for the huge amount of bandwidth that must be used and why are they doing it?

Some people pay money for their account in exchange for extra features.

Heh -

Its def a kid thing (i'd assume - being a geek i've never felt a need to make a message blog site for .....whoever ... to read) - they get all around on that thing... posting this or that - its almost like a youngins newspaper - since thye get to look at all thier friends "stories" ... rofl

I'd consider myself a computer nerd and didn't know a dang thinga bout this till i was monitoring our router and making sure where went what etc.... So had to figure it out =)

Some answers here (http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=4).

This thread makes a THR LJ community somewhat appealing. Wonder how practical that would be.

I believe that would be the guns community pretty well. It seems like most of the THR'ers on LJ are in that community from what I've read.

One can always start their own community, though.

My LiveJournal (http://www.livejournal.com/users/mattpayne/) - recent entries:

And the carnage continues... (http://www.livejournal.com/users/mattpayne/5847.html)"Be Prepared" (http://www.livejournal.com/users/mattpayne/5536.html?nc=3)
The Boy Scout motto is "Be Prepared."

Except, apparently, in Utah, where the motto may as well be, "Huh?"...South Minneapolis: Seven strong-arm robberies in seven days (http://www.livejournal.com/users/mattpayne/5288.html)
If you live in the Whittier neighborhood of Minneapolis, watch your back....Language matters (http://www.livejournal.com/users/mattpayne/4997.html?mode=reply)
The Star Tribune reported on the opening of a Mexican Consulate office in St. Paul. No problem there.

But the reporter wrote this:According to Census data, there are about 100,000 Mexican immigrants in Minnesota, though with the influx of undocumented immigrants, that number is probably closer to 140,000, said consul general Nathan Wolf.That term, undocumented immigrants, is doublespeak for illegal alien.....Papers -- even restraining orders -- don't stop bullets (http://www.livejournal.com/users/mattpayne/4354.html)
...Delmore was 53, a "middle-aged white guy from the suburbs" -- the kind of guy always put up by carry opponents as the kind of person who least needed personal protection....

I believe the guns LJ community would be closer to TFL or possible GlockTalk. It is usually well behaved, but god help you if you post a pic with your finger on the trigger, (Unless it is a hot babe with a finger on the trigger, then it is okay, for some reason.) :rolleyes:

It gets a little rowdy there sometimes, but it is pretty even-keeled.

Maybe comparing it to GlockTalk is going too far.

We do moderate the Guns community, you know. ;) If I catch somebody misbehaving BADLY I warn them then if they continue they are more than welcome to post in somebody else's community because they won't be posting in ours anymore.

My apologies if I implied that smjayman and ernunnos don't moderate.

And after visiting some of the flame-o-ramas on GlockTalk again, that comparision was certainly unfair.

And while guns is certainly not as strict as THR, a THR community would be pretty redundant.
