You probably already heard that LJ is going to start paying a few of us, but if not--- read this.

Didn't read the post but don't care.

If you can make money from the LJ, then more power to you.

A $20 donation to use the site is the best value on the Net (and free if one is so inclined).

Heh ... maybe you can get 1,000,000 shares of Yahoo by linking up with them.

Wishes for continued prosperity !!

You should have been getting paid a long time ago. You all deserve it. Thanks.

i'm all for helping to fund the three of you for all the hard work that you do here on LJ. As it is, I intend to keep my account paid as long as LJ is about, and hopefully will scrounge up the cash to pay for my community as well, but that'll have to wait for a little while longer. until that point, i'm glad to know that my measely $25 (which i would've just wasted on something stupid and pointless anyway) is going to something worthwhile. keep it up guys, you're an inspiration.

I only wish there had been a "+20: Your hard work has produced one of the best online communities on the 'Net, with more features and potential uses than any of the other online community sites I've belonged to in the past. This is a long time coming, and congratulations. I'm so glad you're finally able to do this." option on the poll.

Rah rah! If I didn't support LJ and you guys for doing a good job, I wouldn't have given you money in the first place. I hope you guys can eventually make this worth your while in more than just the "I feel good 'cause I made a kickass online community" sense.

You need money? I'll give you a dollar if you touch my infection. I won't tell you where it is, you have to agree to touch it first.
