One of the things I hate about LiveJournal is that it's so easy to be judgemental about things you read. Like the humans we are, we read something and immeadiately jump to conclusions about things, even if we don't have enough pertinent data to make those leaps. I'm not trying to say that those conclusions are always wrong, but so few of them ever seem to be right. Maybe I just notice it more often because I tend towards playing the role of neutral bystander rather than the friend who swings in to bad mouth whomever has done wrong because it seems like the popular thing to do. It's funny, here I am bitching about people who are overly judgemental, yet at the same time I'm being overly judgemental of them. Always the hypocrite, this one is. All the same, it makes me sad to see how quickly people tend to make assumptions that have very little basis in reality. It's no wonder people get turned off by LJ.
