If you friend me and it's not immediately obvious how you came upon my journal (IE, we have no friends or communities in common), please tell me how you found my journal. Especially if you have no posts (or no public posts) in your own journal. Satisfy my curiosity, ok? Just leave a comment on any entry I've made introducing yourself. Hell, feel free to do this even if it's really obvious where I'd know you from.
My interests are intentionally left blank, but you can probably get a pretty good handle on what I'm interested in by reading a few of my posts and looking at my tags.
This has come up a few times. People have asked if they can quote me in personal blog posts, in communities, metaquotes, whatever. The answer is yes, as long as it's a public post... and most of my posts are public. Please provide a link back to where you got it from (my journal/blog, the community it was posted in, etc). If it's a locked post, I ask that you contact me first.
I HAVE DISABLED ANONYMOUS COMMENTING.
I know there are some people I know IRL who comment on here without accounts. Sorry, folks. Please feel free to either email me, or comment on my wordpress or DW. I've been getting ridiculous amounts of spam, and some really ugly trolls as well, so only people with LJ accounts can reply.
Some changes have been made to LiveJournal, and we hope you enjoy them! As we continue to improve the site on a daily basis to make your experience here better and faster, we would greatly appreciate your feedback about these changes. Please let us know what we can do for you!
