Do You Feel Lucky?

That's it - this is bullshit, I cannot deal with this 2000 label limit. I am ON STRIKE. From now on, I'm not posting a DAMN THING that needs a new label to describe it, until I can get off my LAZY DAMN ASS and deal with these labels that need to be pruned! Until then, I am ON STRIKE. No new posts that would ideally require a new label. The only posts that are going to get posted are those posts that by sheer coincidence, utilize only labels that I've already used before.

Every other post is not getting posted. Just saved to drafts, until it ROTS for all I care! Or until this issue gets RESOLVED.

EDIT: DAMN IT!!! I can't even post THIS post!

There's no label for 'strikes'.

Shit. Okay, I will be making a sole exception for this one post. After this: ON STRIKE. Subject to the conditions as described above in more-than-sufficient detail.

Better get ready for a lot of re-posts of music videos I've already posted. Hey, don't blame me. I'm not the one who forced this situation, but I'm dang sure going to be the one to hold out for as long as it takes for it to be resolved.

On that you may damn well depend.

Glad we got smartassery in there before "they" went all repressive on you. Close call though.

You're just trying to save that one from the chopping block! I'm going to be having to make some hard calls, Mel!

I'm going to see what I can do about consolidating borderline redundant ones, first, before I start axing the good, detail-laden 1-time sweet labels. Those are VALUE ADDED.

Although, I shouldn't worry about it too much, it's not like I'll be getting around to label maintenance any time real soon. I haven't even got time to procrastinate on that one. Back burner's FULL.

Ah, you got me. I thought by using the collective “we” in my statement you’d feel like uniting with me against the forces of “the man” who just want to limit, restrict and contain your free and liberal use of labels.

Seriously though, in these harsh times of economic rationalization of label usage, in these dark days of enforced curtailment of uninhibited label expression, in an era where you are forced to lay-off and make redundant perfectly functional words from your side bar, I would like to plead the case for smartassery. As you said in your comment when it was first discussed, smartassery could apply in many posts, it could do the work of 3 or 4 words that are far too particular to a, er, particular post, therefore allowing you to maintain a functioning label system without breaching the draconian quota.

Smartassery: a label worth leaving alone.

Thank you. That is all.
