Also, I see people who I know are very smart devolve into prattling children on there. I think that a group conversation really cannot be maintained above the average level of intelligence of all the people involved. This means when you get 2 severe idiots involved, the conversation is over. Bleh.
So I am going to try to use LJ more and only use FB for communicating with the people I do volunteer work with. LJ is not a good place to spread the word about, well, anything. But it is a good place to record your thoughts and not worry about every friggin person on the planet seeing it.
