Lj haz teh dumb again
Good grief, I take a little break from LJ to come back to pandemonium and panic! It’s no secret I'm not a fan of Facebook or Twitter. Obviously LJ has not figured out that many of its paying customers are on LJ BECAUSE it’s not Facebook or Twitter. *sigh*

While I don't feel the need to jump ship over this quite yet, I have to echo demode on this one - I'm not at all happy at the comment cross-posting feature. Too many potential mis-understandings and privacy concerns there. So if you're planning to enable this feature, please have the courtesy to let me know so I can either take you off my friends list or remove you from any private filters.

Privacy! It's your friend.

You may wish to add your voice to the thousands thus far: http://news.livejournal.com/129190.htm

Thanks! The link crashed for me every time I tried it yesterday... Hopefully I can get in today to voice my displeasure!

Ditto! I hate this new "feature".

Seriously what were they thinking?!

LJ has become increasingly stupid. (What part of "We like our privacy" don't they get?)

Rest assured that I won't be using either feature!

Yeah and what part of "I'm on LJ becasue it's not Facebook or Twitter" is so hard to understand?

I just left them my negative feedback on allowing cross-posting from private blog enteries here:

Maybe if we all voice our opinions we can get this feature removed for at *least* locked posts.

Agreed! But I'm not worried too much, yet. I trust my friends list to make the right choice. :)

Yeah I'm pretty confident none of my friends would be stupid enough to use the feature (especially on my tight filters) but I thought I'd give fair warning of how I felt about it.

I completely agree with you! I want my privacy, and I sure don't want my LJ life displayed on facebook, but I'm totally lost in the terminology of this matter, is this what LJ are calling pingback? And I should set it to disable?
