Answers to common questions...

Brad, there are thousands of inactive accounts that are taking up space... just go delete all those and then LJ will be fast again!

Nope. Disk space isn't the problem.... and it's not bandwidth. We're CPU and IO limited on the database slaves. Deleting old accounts wouldn't make a bit of difference

I think LiveJournal is just making the site slow on purpose to make more money!

Nice conspiracy theory. I laughed the first time I saw it, but the 10th time is getting a little annoying. Seriously, everytime I go out in public (infrequently) I get everybody asking when the site's going to work. I didn't make LiveJournal to make money... I made it because it's fun. It's pissing me off that it's not working and there's very little we can do about it until the new servers arrive. If I were running this site to make money I'd have a Porsche by now, and I don't.

Also....

I just came back from picking up Blythe from the airport and there were 164 comments in my LJ comments folder. I had to delete them all. If you had something important to say to me, use email, which I always read.
