Sayid pwns all?

Anyone still voting at Lost Madness?

Right now it's Sawyer vs. Sayid! What's a fangirl to do? (Sayid is winning right now-- the man is made of pwnsauce this season. While I love Sawyer, domesticated!Sawyer is not my favorite version of the man. And yeah, Sawyer beat Kate and Sayid beat Jack in the last round.)

Looks it'll come down to Sayid vs. Charlie and Desmond vs. Ben. And then... possibly Sayid vs. either Desmond or Ben? Going up against his new boyfriend or his boss? Or will it be the battle of the Brits?

I don't know if I'm going to participate in the LJ strike this Friday -- the timing sucks. It's the day after the Lost midseason finale!!

Well, call me cynical, but I don't see what good that will do. :/ Maybe it's just the principal of the thing, but...I'm sort of shrugging my shoulders about it.

It sucks that the choice is Sayid v. Sawyer! That is my ship! I can't choose between them - in my world, one is as essential as the other! Oh hell, I guess if I'm honest, Sayid is the most essential, but it's a close call.

I, too, am undecided about the strike. I think it's not likely to be effectual. On the other hand, I don't want to undermine the efforts of those who feel more strongly than I do.

It IS hard to choose! I voted for Sawyer, so if you vote for Sayid, that'll even it out, LOL. I have to admit that Sayid pwns Sawyer this season. I hope Sawyer has something to DO this week.

Yeah, not sure about how effective the strike will be.

I voted for Sayid, so we canceled each other out. ;)

I don't know that Sawyer will play much of a part this week. It didn't look that way from the promo. I guess we should just be grateful that the strike ended and there's 5 more eps to go. If all we'd gotten of Sawyer this season was what we've had so far that would have been really sad.

Oh, well, I was just happy to see Sawyer in the promo at all. :-/ And it does look like he knows Michael's back, so maybe the whole gang's getting back together? I know it must make it easier on the writers to split the cast up but I really, really hate it. A lot. The whole "Eggtown" camp has been such a bust.

And yeah, a really pitiful season so far, Sawyer-wise! It's a good thing I'm not only watching for him or I'd have been really upset.

I voted Sayid. I mean, I love Sawyer to pieces, too, but Sayid has always been in my two top characters since I started watching and seeing the latest Sawyer developments..

Uuhm. If it becomes Sayid vs Ben I'll sure hope Sayid pwns him (and I'll gladly vote for him), if it comes to Sayid vs Desmond I'll just abstain, they'll give each other a consolation prize however it ends up ;)

I think I'd have done it, but I'll probably be out of town for Easter stuff and so I don't think I'll have the time to post anyway even if I manage to watch Lost before I go. But the timing sucks, indeed, though the intentions are definitely good.

Sayid has a had a bitchin' season. Which I guess is only fair, considering how pushed aside he was in S2 and S3.

But Sawyer is S4 is a rather sad affair. :-/

Sayid vs. Desmond is another dilemma! Sayid vs. Ben, no contest!

Okay... so I read the info on the strike... and I still don't get it. I mean... I don't see anything wrong with LJ as it is... And people need advertising free space-- advertising? What advertising? Maybe I'm so used to it that I block it out, but hell, I'm not adverse to a few banners as long as I don't *have* to go to the sites and buy something. I don't quite understand the objection. Beyond that, I think protests are great. They send messages to people who would otherwise be unreachable, even if the message is blatantly ignored. Good luck to those who are participating!

On the Sayid vs Sawyer front, I find myself ambivolent as well. How can one choose between two smokin' hot guys?! Honestly, I like how sweet Sawyer's been lately... although I totally miss the bad-ass snark-aholic he used to be. Couldn't they find a way to balance the two attributes? Sayid has much more of an interesting story right now, but that's because he's in the middle of all the action. I hope Sawyer shoves dinner up Ben's nose or something. :/

You don't see it. You have what they called a basic account which means you don't have a lot of bells and whistles but you also don't get the ads. They're eliminating the basic account option (don't know if this will change for current users or only new ones), which means that the only way to avoid the ads will be to have a paid account. The ads can be annoying but are livable (there are ads at both Insane Journal and Greatest Journal), but the real problem is that LJ seems determined to target fanfiction as being BAD. They had removed a bunch of "interests" though they are back now. More info here. The two things are tied together because the new owners want to make the entirety of LJ users more attractive to advertisers.

So... they think that people who write fanfic are not responsive to ads while others are? *scratches head* I mean, I see that the advertizers are concerned about advertising effectively, but... so what if people list their interests as "bondage"? People who like bondage-- and gay porn-- need to eat too! I don't get why they can't just say, "Okay, the weird people will be interested in the basic necesities of life... y'know tp and stuff, and the people who profess to be interested in business is where we'll stick the broker advertisements." Makes sense to me...

I'm glad you told me that they're getting rid of the Basic account-- that sucks. I mean, if they're hell-bent on making money, I don't see how people not using their journals for a day is going to deter anybody, but I've always marveled at how LJ is making any money in the first place. I wouldn't think very many people have paid accounts. And it's not like people who *do* have paid accounts will be able to access communities that they've "gotten rid of" because they won't exist and *that* bugs me.

Thanks again for the info... and sorry to Halfdutch for dragging this out in her LJ. *bows apologetically*

the Lost Madness thing has been having unfair battles since the beginning!
Sawyer vs Hurley? Jack vs Sayid? Why?? The Oceanic 815 survivors had it much harder than the other ones (Because, come on, Bonnie, Abbadon and the smoke monster are simply not as formidable as opponents!)

re: the Lost strike... I read the post you linked, but being a bit out of loop, I don't know what the problem is, this time. Recent changes, ok, but which ones in particular? I'm not one to get involved in these things, usually. Plus, missing the chance to comment on the last episode of Lost before the hiatus? Not really likely...

I can't believe Hurley and Sawyer were pitted against each other right off the bat! My vote went to Sawyer, but still, not fair!

I'll probably be right here Friday, chatting about Lost!

Sayid all the way! Gosh, the man is made of awesome, those arms, that hair... *drools* It doesn't beat Jack in my list, but hey, I would never throw Sayid out of my bed (actually I'd ask him to join Jack/Me for a threesome ;)

Sayid is made of awesome this season, and that gets no complaints from me. Jack and Sawyer have had very little to do. I was just thinking: What *has* Jack done? Played b-ball. Talked on the walkie a lot. Ate cereal. And kissed Juliet. That's about it! Oh, yeah, and almost killed Locke

(Hey, I'm finally friending you back!)

Lolz! I thought it might be Allie! Now, you have to agree that Sawyer's gotten the shaft this season. And not in a good way! Srsly, the show is giving us such great stuff with Sayid and Desmond but nada with Sawyer, besides the boxers. And horse-shoe playing. I can only hope they'll give him something GOOD in the rest of the season.

And fwiw, I voted for Sawyer. A few times! :)

Hee. I don't even remember what I said. lol.

Sawyer has gotten more than the shaft. He's Claire 2.0 and that makes me see red. >:/ I would trade a 1,000 boxer scenes for just one juicy dramatic moment.

You can kiss Sawyer goodbye in the poll. They fanboys just love thighs of steal. Whatever.

I did make this, though, to help suppress my anger.

Sayid knocked out Jack? I didn't see that coming. If was tough but I went with Sayid over Sawyer because he's out saving the world while Sawyer plays horseshoes. I wonder if Desmond can pull a victory over Ben?

Jack's barely *in* this season. I think the voting is reflecting how people are feeling right now, although I know Jack's always had his detractors. I wonder how this would have shaken out in S1. A lot less characters to vote for, definitely!

And yeah, Sayid is pwning because he has a fantastic storyline and is kicking ass every week. Sawyer's playing house and Jack's just talking on the walkie. I enjoy Ben as a villain but NO WAY does he win. Not over Sayid or over Desmond, I don't see it!

I couldn't help myself. I voted for Sawyer because, uh, I'm sentimental? And because I didn't like Sayid's s1 flashback episodes that much, to be honest.

I'm not participating in the strike. I'm doing my own alternative, Let's Fight The Man thing, which will be posting "DEAR SUP: I'M HERE FOR THE PORN (and all those fun things you want to get rid of) !!!!" in all caps, in the biggest font possible. I know it'll be just as ineffective (possibly, sadly) as the strike and at least I'll get to speak my mind.

Hee, I voted for Sawyer too, I must confess. Don't think it'll turn the tide but dammit, I still love him. And I do love Sayid too, esp. this season. I just wish they had scenes together. Like I wish Jack and Sawyer had some scenes together.

And woo, save the porn!
