HAI THAR, DREAMWIDTH

Unless you never read the lj news updates (possible) or none of your lj friends have ranted about this (less possible), EVERYONE should know by now that an almighty stink is being raised about the crossposting to Twitter and FB. Basically, what's happened is that a new feature has been added to the comment box for replying to any entry. Now people can crosspost their comment to either Twitter or  Facebook or both. This wouldn't be so bad, except  you can do it even with locked posts AND the comment includes a link to the entry. So a complete stranger might be curious about it and click on the link to the entry. Even if the post is flocked, the stranger can still read your profile page and other entries that aren't flocked... including porny fanfic. What if your Grandma was able to figure out that this person was you? Egads!

So, I've decided to start using Dreamwidth again, because at least they're not stupid enough to do something like that. I posted a couple of entries when I first signed up, then forgot all about it because lj was so handy. But if lj doesn't remove that feature post bloody haste, then I'm considering leaving it. I do NOT want my privacy to go up in smoke.

That is all.

I'll see you over there, maybe. Right now, Kate Sherwood over there is my 'public' journal, but you're right, this is getting silly. Maybe pekover needs to have a re-birth...

Why not? You're already keeping them seperate on lj, so have pekover on Dreamwidth. At least that alter ego will be safe!

Ha ha, I make it sound like we're superheroes. But seriously, it's like they don't understand lj subulture at all.
