Yes, I'm Open to Other Points of View

But starting now, I'm only open to your view if you are my friend.

LJ is getting spammers who will open an account, then post comments that have nothing to do with the post and everything to do with peddaling their own site/product/spam/virus.

So while many of my posts will remain public, comments will be limited to friends. Sorry that a few assholes have to make this necessary, but trolling really pisses me off, and I'm not putting up with it anymore.

almost duped by "I have a crush on you" message
This has happened to me several times! I nearly fell for it the first time until I got the exact same message a second time.

Re: almost duped by "I have a crush on you" message
It's a fairly big tipoff for me when someone who's never friended me or posted a comment decides to comment on a post from three years ago to tell me that they have a crush on me.

Yeah.

Awhile back, I was getting spammed by people posting a link to their Indian escort service!

I don't know what these "crush" links would have taken me to. The posters and links were all different, but the message was exactly the same. ;-P

Ugh, sorry about the spambots. :( I got one on a response to a public comm I posted in.
