So Highschool

weather: cloudy
outside: 11.5°C
mood: cynical
The whole LiveJournal paradigm forces you to look at your online existence in a certain way. You start to count "karma" in a way that you never have before.

People adding your journal is a good thing and people removing you is a bad thing. And because it's laid out in the open, everyone can see how popular you are.

The more comments you get, the better. And even in that small, insignificant way, it does matter. People get various shades of upset about their deep thoughts going uncommented while inane crap gets pages and pages of comments.

People also mentally evaluate the quality of the comments they receive too. "Me too"s, "LOL"s, etc. are scored much lower than paragraphs upon paragraphs of text.

Give us any communication/interaction tool and we'll turn it into highschool again.
