I've been reading this community for a few days now, it's been pretty interesting. With so many recent changes to the site, people seem very excited to suggest this that and the other new feature, fail-safe, or policy.

I personally always find it useful when doing organizational planning to give some thought about what I don't want to happen or what I don't want to find myself doing.

I'm curious as to what others don't want for the site. I'm not necessarily talking about social contract things like "no advertising." I'm talking about features I don't think would be useful, or concerns that other users have that I don't share.

For instance, I don't think Livejournal should concern itself with a supposed scarcity of user names. I also don't think, as I've seen suggested elsewhere, that we need to be able to control who adds us as a friend, or that we should somehow be able to make "public" posts that are invisible to certain users, or to be able to give permission to read friends-only posts to users not on our friends lists on a post-by-post basis. Another feature I wouldn't be interested in is the messaging feature that Greatest Journal fans often tout.

Does Live Journal administration keep a list of what they don't want to do, aside from the Social Contract?
