We interrupt your scheduled programming...  
I apologize for not posting about Middlebury and what's transpired in my life since then, but here's something important for all of you to read.

Are you listening?

Are you listening?

Good! Now, you all know about the snafu surrounding LiveJournal's new cross-posting feature for Twitter and Facebook.

The problem is that LiveJournal is integrating somewhat with Facebook, most likely with some kind of contract between the two websites. The meaning is that we're all that much more unsure about whether or not the administrators will listen to the users' complaints.

Now, I'm not saying that it's time for us to finally pack all our bags and head on over to Dreamwidth (even though I do have invite codes available, and am looking for more friends for my account there); most of our respective fandoms and f-lists are situated pretty firmly here. I'm saying that, if you value your privacy and respect the privacy of the people on your f-list, please undertake the following measures:

1) Don't cross-post comments made in f-locked entries to Facebook or Twitter. (I think I've made it clear that I would very much like it if no one cross-posted anything from this journal or even [livejournal.com profile] momoizumu, if anyone still goes there to look at the tumbleweeds.)
2) Don't enable cross-posting to Facebook in your LJ settings, unless you want your Facebook (and most likely real) name to appear in your LJ profile and your LJ name to appear in your Facebook comments.
3) Install this handy code to get rid of the cross-posting boxes under all comment forms, for everybody, on your journal!
4) Take the poll. It won't hurt.

Finally, here is the response from the LJ staff concerning the changes. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] starlady38, [livejournal.com profile] vegetas, and everyone listed above for the information!

With all that said, I'll definitely be able to make that journal entry tomorrow. Good night, everyone.
