I finally lost my patience with several communities on LiveJournal, and did what will probably be one of the stupider things I’ll have ever done, at least online: I created a new community, “The Ivory Tower of Fake News.”
The user description sort of says it all,
The original academe was a society whose purpose it was to promote a particular aspect of knowledge or culture. This community is for people who enjoy The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, but are frustrated with the influx of fans who don’t have the ability to critically think about issues.
Or, in planer speak: no fangirls, no slash, no fluff*. This is a place to talk about the shows and what’s on the shows with people who can actually finish a sentence without saying “squee” and who realize that sometimes, a slice of pizza is just a slice of pizza. If you insist on squees and pizzasex, this is not the place for you.
Your moderator is a cranky graduate student with little patience. Don’t piss her off.
Oh, and please read our FAQ.
*No, this doesn’t mean people can’t post funny, fluffy, sense of humour things. We’re not all suits’n’tea’n’crumpets here. But, in the wise words of one member, this is more than an online, The Daily Show/The Colbert Report themed Tiger Beat.
Wish me luck. I’m going to need it.
