It is also a good way to mask yourself over the internet. Stirring up internet drama on greatest journal is one of the most cowardly acts ever.
It goes by the acronym GJ.
The name is pretty much self-explanatory.
Girl #2: Live Journal is SO last year. Have you checked Greatest Journal out yet?
Most commonly called "GJ"
Whereas livejournal is more commonly used for the community scene and actual writing talent, greatestjournal's sole purpose is to spawn new rating communities where insecure girls get reaffirmation by other insecure girls or get shot down and commit e-suicide or take their issues over to the communities: shitlist or howmuchyousuck.
When they are not applying for rating communities, they are roleplaying celebrities and making them all gay.
The site is 98% female. All of the males on the site are either gay or not really guys but girls roleplaying pretending to be "real" guys.
I wonder how many icons I can make of some random ugly guy from some shitty post-hardcore band for my greatestjournal userpics.
It was basically LJ on crack: unlimited user styles, icons, and free picture hosting -- all at no cost to the user, with the exception of a few user info page ads and ads you'd see only when you weren't logged in!
Then in 2005, trends spread. Everyone had similar layouts, icons, and even user info pages, usernames, and pictures. It kept spreading and hasn't stopped. Now 70% of GJ is like that.
1) Girls between the ages of 12 - 18, starting online drama, making icons, layouts, and banners, and basically stylizing everything. Some share beauty tips and role play. All of them come out as clones.
2) Same as #1, but scene kids. They type in lower case and either use only one icon forever, or alternate between a thousand (no exaggeration!) They type up lyrics and take as many pictures whenever they have a chance.
3) Refined scene kids, a nice blend of #1 and #2.
4) Some weird anime-obsessed Wapanese. Horrible usernames, horrible fake layouts, and horrible icons. Usually non-Asian.
