Two thoughts on Livejournal

1) If you are the kind of person who appears on Livejournal once every six months to say "I keep meaning to post on Livejournal more, but it's dead nowadays" then YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM. People will post more if they see their friends posting more. If you don't care whether people post more, or have nothing to say, then fair enough. If you want to make a positive difference then start using LJ to write about what you've been up to, or comment on your friends journals when they say things, to let them know it's worth their while continuing.

2) On a more personal note, if I see someone saying something that was difficult for them to say, or which is due a sympathetic response, and they haven't already had a sympathetic response from anyone, then I'll generally make thirty seconds to let them know they've been heard. Conversely, if they've already had a bunch of comments, and they aren't someone I'm good friends with, then I won't see much point in piling on (depending on how busy I am, and the nature of what they're posting about, obviously).
