Yes, I'm trin. Yes, I'm mad. Yes, I'm putting me up for election because ha! Why ever not.
So, what's my manifesto?
Well freedom of speech is obviously important, but I'd really like to be able to ban complete and utter idiocy, if that's all right? I mean, there's already enough idiots in the world, why the heck should we have to put up with them infiltrating our dearly beloved LiveJournal? We shouldn't. Ah, but then that'd fall foul of the whole free speech thing, wouldn't it. Well in that case, I'd advise opening things up to public
What else then? Well what else would you like? Nooo, I'm never gonna try to bag you more user pics, so don't even bother asking for that one. Well, pretty much my big thing is that stuff on here needs to be coming from where it counts - in other words, the thoughts, ideas, and opinions of the user base need to be listened to, and not just glossed over to keep the glitter girlz happy. Other than that? Well I don't think we need ten million official communities to have to follow to be able to keep abreast of the stuff going on in here, but I do think we need more people over in Support. I also think that finding the FAQ should be a whole lot easier than it is, with obvious links on every LJ page you care to visit (yes, even on your own page, where it should be listed along with your user name, calendar, and the other stuff like that. There's also the whole decent writing and grammar stuff - as in, everyone should be encouraged to write properly, with none of this 1337 poop, and they should also be encouraged to use good html skills so we can rid the world of things like the dreaded tag forever!
Who am I?
Haha! If I tell you that, then I'll have to kill you. All in the spirit of hyperbole, of course.
I am, essentially, a boring housewifey type at the moment, but a boring housewifey type with a penchant for stirring up poo by asking questions that people tend to not want asking, and for stating the obvious when no-one wants it stated. As a result of this trait, I've been called "something an anthill kicker", and defined as "as prickly as a gauze sack full of hyper-active hedgehogs," "the fire in which definitions are either melted or refined," and have an actual dictionary definition of:
Trin: proper noun.I have a few communities under my belt (hence why I'm so fat), and I absolutely prefer hands-off moderation, based on the theory that idiots will show themselves up as that anyway, and so will just get hounded off instead.
1. The exception which proves the rule.
2. The one in the corner laughing manically and drinking mead.
1. To make things rise: tempers, debates, occasions, bread etc."
- exceprted from a copy of the Intergalactic English Dictionary which fell through a time-warp in Tom Baker's coat pocket.
I grew up on Usenet, and I've been on LJ for almost forever, or at least since the turn of the century, and have pretty much my whole life that isn't the boringy houseworky stuff on here. I love LJ with a passion. Oh yeah, and I also believe very strongly that

Well like I've said, I need to give my fans someone to vote for, there's also the expenses paid holidays to wherever it was that the meetings are going to take place in, there's also the whole fame and

Vote for me because I'm honest, and I'm fun to have around (sometimes), and I think these votes should based on more than how many people we've all got on our friends lists.
ETA: Oh yeah, and just so's the fandom lot know, I wrote my own Buffy fic, twice upon a time, long long ago, and it was very very sad.
