Yes, I most certainly could. All I see is a lot of blah blah blah and ignoring the fact that other companies still do the same for a lot less. Nice try Mr. Apologist but the Real World(TM) business men disagree with your assessment. LJ is groslly overpriced compared to virtually every other competitor. Even non-technical people here have the common sense to see that, but you don't.

Why would they use an outdated pre-built NetApp anyway? They already pay for redundant bandwidth, bandwidth isn't even the issue. All you've got is a bunch of tiny "it adds up" arguments.

I've got a one sentence argument that beats all of yours: other companies do the same for much less. Must suck to have gone through all that effort to have your argument easily shot down?

They wouldn't. I was finding lowest possible prices period, so you couldn't come back later and say my numbers were too high because you can get bla bla bla on ebay, etc.


Sounds to me like you just want for them to make it cheaper. I suppose since you've got 100+ public photos, I could see your arguments for making it cheaper. You just don't want to pay them to do it, and you realize that you either don't have the skill to host them elsewhere, or the desire. So you blather on and on about how it's a conspiracy, how it's unfair, how other companies do the same for much less. Good, jump ship. Why the hell did you pay for livejournal, anyway, if you consider it overpriced? Why are you still hosting your photos on livejournal, rather than ordering one of those drives and doing it yourself?

I guess I can sum this up to one thing, you're one of those people who has neither the skills or doesn't have the desire, and instead wants to sit and bitch about how everyone else should be cheaper.

I'm holding a pity party for you at your house right now. See you there!

You retard, I'm using only 6.18% of my storage space from after months of use. Your AD HOMINEM attack is baseless. The storage space, mind you, which comes with the bare minimum paid account. Why would I host elsewhere when it comes with the paid account already?

Are you going to address my argument at all? The fact is photo hosting and other storage hosting services are all cheaper than LJ, by a considerable amount. This is about UPGRADING storage space, not using the pre-allocated 100MB. I already have a seperate web hoster with 400MB+ space anyawy if I really wanted to host off site.

Really, you're just pathetic apologist who couldn't come up with anything better than an ad hominem attack. The fact of the matter is: compared to every other service out there, they are overcharging. THerefore LJ is overcharing, QED.

since you got me interested....

do you have specific companies/services that charge less? i would also like to point out immediately that i'm talking specifically about photo-sharing services.

agreed with lenosvet.

whereas your opponent has provided actual evidence that lj is, in fact, NOT overcharging, you ascertain without any comparable evidence that they are.

who's right? not you. not until you can live up to your own argument. that's the way it works in debate, an offshoot of the real world.

I'm inclined to vote for noweb4u.
