Minor Annoyance

I'll tell you what irks me. You find someone on LJ that you think looks pretty interesting, so you add them...somehting soon comes up that you will respond to, you type out your comment, click to post it...and get the message that you can't because this person has the option turned on where you have to be listed as a friend to comment to them.

I know a few of you reading this probably do, as well, and it's your journal, your option, do as you like...but I don't claim to understand it. I'm fine with turning off anonymous comments, sure...there are jackasses out there. but you are cutting yourself off from people you don't know...and all friends start out that way.

It probably wouldn't get to me as much, but I just saw someone on my friends list witha computer problem that was really bothering them (EMM386 stuff), and I typed out a nice long comment that explained what it was, how it worked, and two different links I searched out on how to fix the problem relatively simply...and then got that when I tried to post it.

*shrug* Your choice, it's cool. I'll support your right to do what you choose...but I'll make no bones about how little sense it makes to ME.
