What the??  
I used an icon to reply to a comment and it wasn't my icon. Trying to decide if my account has been hacked or some sort of fried bit of LJ data.

Changed my password just in case.

I had the same thing happen the other day - it was incredibly strange. I suspect some sort of LJ error. T_T

Error is much better than hacking!

Agreed! Although I suppose it could be some sort of epic multi-account hacker...does that even make sense?

Yeah, it does make sense :)

That's a relief! After all the stories I've heard of Russian bots hacking into people's LJs, I was a wee bit worried.

This happened once a while back when LJ was switching servers. The user icons got all jumbled up or didn't appear at all.

Also, if it was in a community, then it could be the settings. A community can be set to use only its own icons in posts. (I'm not sure, but I think you can do the same for you own friends page, too.)

This was here. Hopefully, it was just a weird fluke.

Perhaps the universe is trying to tell you something. What was it an icon of?

It was a head that looked like it had been drawn with a coloured pencil. Very odd.

ahhhh this again?

this issue was going around my f-list a few weeks ago, apparently it's an LJ glitch.
