Seriously, LJ?

I, like many others on my flist, am seriously disturbed by LJ's bright idea to link to Facebook and Twitter. There's a reason I don't share my fandom related giddiness (see also: gay porn) on my FB account.

I'm asking everyone who reads my stories and comments on my journal not to link anything to any social networking site. I'm seriously considering friends locking all my posts to ensure some level of privacy.

Major LJ fail right now.

ETA:

"You're probably all aware that Livejournal now allows you to repost comments to Facebook and Twitter. This is a very unpopular new feature. Firefox has an addon that hides the new Facebook / Twitter repost ticky boxes. But here's a little line of code you can use to make it so that no one, no matter what browser they're using, can repost comments.

.b-repost-item {display:none}


Here's what to do:

1. Go to Custom CSS in Customize Journal Style.

2. Copy and paste .b-repost-item {display:none} into the Custom stylesheet box and save changes.

Voila! As you can see the boxes are hidden on the comm now :) (daphnie added note: the text will still be there but the ticky boxes are gone! Basically rendering the ability nul and void)

FYI I did not write this but it was doing the rounds on my f-list and I encourage you to share it."

Oh holy shit - seriously?? I admit as of late my RL has made me more of a stalker on LJ but to link it to my FB, where my kids' friends want to *friend* me because I'm (hee) "cool" and the people I work with, socialize with and am not my girly squeeing geek self with will be able to see my LJ from my FB?
Um, no. I think not. That cannot happen.
I'd have to delete my LJ first and I think that would kill me.

If you look further down this thread, there's a way to disable it, and it seems to have worked. I don't see the option anymore to cross post to FB or Twitter when I reply to a comment. I believe that applies to anyone who posts my journal.

Whew. I was getting nervous!
