LJmeme.com -- someone please tell me I'm dreaming.

Otherwise I might start constructing a massive bomb for use upon a disgusting website www.ljmeme.com with these Terms of Service:

LJmeme.com's proprietary rights

By submitting, posting or displaying any Materials on or through the LJmeme.com service, you automatically grant to us a worldwide, non-exclusive, sublicenseable, transferable, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable right to copy, distribute, create derivative works of, publicly perform, display and or sell such Materials. By posting said information, you grant us full ownership over it for any purpose. Don't give out information you don't want other people to see without reading the fine print. I'm just sayin'. A lot of people tend to get all pissy about these kinds of things, so don't be a dumbass. And no, we're not going to sell your email addresses to spammers, we hate those guys.

Full ownership of whatever information you post...  What should I post there -- perhaps a picture of GWB?

Fuck them.

P.S. By the way, this is the very site that comes with the `How many people have a crush on you' meme.  As you see, it's quite catchy -- which is precisely why LJmeme.com is evil, because a lot of people will fall for it without any doubt.  So yes, spread the word.


Sean: irrevocable right to copy, distribute, create derivative works of,...
Sean: irrevocable
Sean: now that just sucks.
Me: Yes.
Sean: We reserve the right to modify or terminate the LJmeme.com service for any reason, and without notice,
Me: Basically it's the same clause from orkut's propriety notice, plus an additional clause about automatic assumption of ownership.
Sean: what's orkut?
Me: A Google-sponsored social engineering site
Me: Think of an invitation-based Friendster.
Sean: interesting
Sean: hmm
Sean: you have to log in to access it
Sean: watch, they'll steal your lj password too.
Me: That Orkut and its TOS BS made me check for both privacy notices and propriety notices whenever I join a new website.
Me: Exactly.
Who uses that shit for anything vital anyways?

The thing is, you have to authenticate against LJmeme.com by providing your LiveJournal username and password.  See what could get stolen?

HELLA STUPID. I hope they die. I am just lucky I never signed up with them but JESUS, they are fucking retards.
This is why I use a different password for things not important to me. :P
Jeez, that's horrible. That definitely goes up on my top 3 of 'Worst TOS of all time'.
