Since You've Been Waiting  

Okay, so I probably can't answer all the comments related to the Facebook/Twitter fiasco, so post instead!

I do not have Facebook, never will. Way too stalkerish for me. I do, however, have Twitter, which is under the same name as here. If you feel compelled to do the crosspost comment thing, I have no objections. On PUBLIC posts, of course. If you break the friends lock sanctity, we're going to have issues. On the other hand, I think this has been an absolutely stupid move on LJ's part, and they seriously need to give everyone the option of disabling those stupid crosspost buttons, and/or modify them based on post security settings. Do these people not do the simplest research before implementing their kooky ideas?

Right there with you all the way.

The only thing positive I have to say about it is at least we have to go enable it to make it work if we want to crosspost.

Facebook had settings (and other sites have done this as well) where they automatically set this stuff for you and you have to find your security settings to *disable* what they are doing.

On a related note: are you posting all the same content to your DW journal that you post to LJ? This mess has accelerated my wish to move as many of my subscriptions to DW as possible.

Well, yes... but [g] I back up my LJ on DW, and if I'm being really efficient, that happens every week to ten days. But if it's usual me it's sometimes a month before I remember to import.

Ah! Good to know.
