Another livejournal election thought

Is anyone else thinking that this is the most entertaining "reality" show that the livejournal management have ever staged?

We have a group of people competing for the post of official scapegoat, basically - because whoever wins this is going to be blamed for every bit of crass mismanagement and bad PR the owners pull. I'm pretty sure that the job comes with no power whatever, so about all that you can do is bitch at the company, who have no commitment or legal obligation to do anything that the advisory board recommends.

Meanwhile all of them are doing the equivalent of going into the diary room and posting their thoughts, in some cases not to their own advantage, and eventually most of them will be voted off the island and back into well-deserved obscurity.
