Filters - Her Most Regal Majesty, the Queen of Snark
void where prohibited, except by law
I've not really had a good vitriolic rant in a while, but the rants filter still exists, and is still opt in. Disclaimer: It's not big, it's not clever, and it may contain some words that you might actually be happy saying to your mother. My mother is rather wonderfully laid back about that sort of thing, so I'm quite happy to swear like a trooper in front of her, but YMMV.


Poll #660381 Geek ghetto

Should I create a separate filter for postings with a high technical content

I could give a masturbating monkey, but I don't

I would like to be on a technical filter if you set one up

Stop being so bloody self-obsessed. It's not as if I read your journal anyway.

Ooh - I can't remember if I'm on the rants filter, but yes please!

And I would fill in your poll, but I couldn't give a masturbating monkey, because I don't have one :P

Yes please to rants; not bothered about computery stuff (since I don't understand a word of it).

Don’t filter it — people not on your friends list may be interested in it — but hide it behind a cut so non-techy people don’t have to read it.

Filters don't really work unless you only ever make friends-only posts. Personally I have enough wit to not read articles I don't find interesting anyway.

I said I didn't care about the filters, but yeah, actually, what rjk and mooism said. But if you do make a filter, I probably don't need to be on it, because what I know about "hi techie content" could fit on a postage stamp. I mean, dude, I'm only a webmaster.

I'm not exactly t3chno-l33t myself. I just thought some people might be getting bored by them. Sounds like the right thing to do is to lj-cut them anyway.

Put me on any filters you want. Some days I just skim, some days I'll read it all haven't the foggiest what my friends are talking about, it's all good.

I admittedly don't get high technical things.. not being great with techy things.. But I'm not really bothered by seeing them either.

And I do care!

So... none of the above.. or maybe a little of each?
