Voting  
I'm a huge proponent of voting. Here in the US, our ability to vote for what we want is one of our defining characteristics. I don't usually talk about it much (I avoid politics in general, as a rule here on my LJ), but I thought since the LJ advisory board elections are ending in a day or so, it was worth a mention to those who may not know about it/have not thought much about it.

Remember the great LJ Strikeout of 2007? Or the Apocalyptic Sequel? There are very good reasons why you should want a fandom friendly representative, or at least not the guy who appears to be actively against fandom. Especially since his tactics, past and present actions, and all around demeanor leave a lot to be desired. Others have talked about him in detail, and he's currently second place, and was first for quite some time.

There are some excellent pro-fandom candidates, one of which is currently in the lead - but needs a LOT more votes to keep that position:

Supporter icarusancalion has collected links to well thought out endorsements of fandom friendly candidates here and here.

I know fandom on LJ are legion, so why wouldn't we use our numbers and vote?

I already voted, but... I don't suppose this is one of those vote-early, vote-often things, is it? ;)

Alas, no. Although apparently you can change your vote by viewing poll results. I changed mine, as my earlier candidate is no longer in the running.
