New vgift (or gift shop item) suggestion

Title
New vgift (or gift shop item) suggestion

Short, concise description of the idea
Add a replica of the emergency power-down switch that shut down LiveJournal to the vgift section of the LiveJournal store, or maybe arrange for a plastic-and-metal real commemorative item to be shipped while supplies last.

Full description of the idea
One example of what this button looks like is http://www.4imprint.com/Big-Sound-and-Light-Button/exec/detail/~SKU103651/~CA103651.htm. Alternatively, an image of a hand (fist or palm) about to hit it, or hitting it (animated image) may be added, perhaps followed by a cut to black, then the word "Ooops" after a few seconds.

It could also be used as a ban, defriend, or screen button for paid-only layouts or for permanent accounts. (Since complete power losses are unlikely to ever happen again more than twice, there's no reason to make it available to Plus accounts. And it would probably upset advertisers, fandom, or both.)

If offered as a material item from the supplier above, it should feature the sound of fans and computers powered off, followed by an alarm going off in the distance and loud swearing.

An ordered list of benefits
  • More money for LiveJournal
  • Wish fulfillment fantasies (eg, for shutting up those people who insist on polluting your friends page or your inbox with inane twittering)
  • A better way to state your opinion of LiveJournal ideas
  • Fisting jokes
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Someone will question LiveJournal's priorities
  • Someone will want it accessible to Basic Accounts or Plus Accounts
  • Someone will misread the default text as "WANK promotions"
  • Someone will fail to pay attention to the date on the suggestion
  • Fisting jokes
