Oh, LJ. Please say it ain't so!

Okay, whoever came up in LJ with this idea of reposting comments to Facebook and Twitter was on crack. Particularly since you, the poster, do not have the option to opt out of that.

In my case, most of my entries are public. I very seldom filter anything. However, I do have a number of private (for my eyes only) entries, which are available to no one but me. Yet, I checked in those entries, and lo and behold, the repost comments via FB and Twitter are mocking me from there.

WTF? No, it's not like I am going to post comments to myself. But this is simply ridiculous.

I do hope that after the whole foo and wah that has resulted from this ill concocted idea, LJ will come to its senses and fix this thing. Otherwise, this is going to backfire on them really bad.

In the meantime, I just want you to know that I have no intention of using that feature in mine or anyone else's journal, and I do expect the same courtesy back. (Not that I need to say that, since I know that none of my friends will do it, but I just felt that I needed to get it out of my chest.)

And now, back to the salt mines.

Belfebe out.

Um, is this relevant only if you have your LJ and FB accounts connected to each other? Is this the 'pingbacks' thing they mention at the top of the LJ screen today?

Oh wait. I think I see how to do it. Does it also re-post YOUR post to FB/Twitter or just my comment? Even so, you might not want me to share my comment 'I agree that Duke Silly-Butt is a dork.' in public.

Apparently it does not matter if you have the FB linked or not (the original poster). I can see what LJ was trying to do, but the execution is poor and it's leading to all sorts of problems. The ping thing is simply a notification if someone links to your entry. That one I don't mind. It's always nice to know who linked you. But the comments thing, that's a whole nother matter.

Ohhh, I love the Duke Silly-Butt reference!
