Throwing My Hat In

Hi, I'm Elizabeth, and I'm nominating myself.

I am a webcomic writer, photographer, and writer, as well as a government intern (not in that way!) I'm a recent graduate of Rutgers University with a 3.82 GPA and an active writer for the campus newspaper, the Rutgers Gleaner.

I've been involved in LJ since 2001, and have had a paid account for most of my time online.

Prior to my involvement in LJ, I had my own online journal (one of the first) from 1997-2001 called bitterfame.com

I'm an active LJ member and even run the community for my and my husband's webcomic, http://www.raincannon.com/ on LiveJournal. I'm an active member of brits_americans, comix_grrls, and hip_domestics communities!

So, hi!

I intend to be an Advisory Board Member who has two platforms based on libertarian philosophy

1. Non-interference

2. Sensible Copyright Enforcement.

I want you to be able to have icons of your child eating, whether that's from a bottle or a breast, and I will fight for your right to do so.

I want you to be able to post all the Harry/Snape, Harry/Draco, or Giles/Spike slash fic you want. I want you to be able to post your fan fiction and your original creations, your true stories and memoirs, without fear of being shut down. And, when someone finds what you write offensive, I want there to be a sensible, utilitarian and libertarian policy toward our treatment of members, the kind of policy John Stewart Mill would be proud of.

Do no harm and do not interfere unless you do harm to others.

Sensible Copyright Enforcement
As a webcomic writer myself, I want to see an artist's rights protected as fully as possible. As the wife of someone who does a comic based on parody of another comic, (that would be shadowofsummer's Fred Basset parody), I want to know that works that parody or are created for social commentary are protected. I want to see more Creative Commons less copyright. I want to never again see in LiveJournal what happened to kumimonster and I will fight to make sure it never does! There should NEVER be a policy of ban first and ask questions later.
