Fuckin' Spam - Now On LJ!  
Well, the spammers have stepped up proceedings. I guess LJ is popular enough now.

You may now get anonymous comments that are spam. The most recent one I saw claimed "I added you as a friend, add me back" with a link marked 'my journal'. It was actually a link to a yahoo webcam.

First off, why would you leave an anonymous comment if you were a registered user, asking to be simul-added? Sheesh...anyway, give serious though to turning off your anonymous comments. AT the very least, make sure your IP tracking is on...that could be useful for tracking down where this crap is coming from.

Yet another reason I am "friends only". Keeps out the stalkers and the spammers. It's really sad that I have to do it, as I'd rather not.

I got some already...
Of course you know I love the porn. So it thrilled me to no end to get an anonymous comment with a link to it. Thankfully I screened it. Like people couldn't find that shit on their own. Good thing I'm tired. Otherwise I'd be really pissed. But I guess... in the words of Diamond Dave... "You buy the land, you get the Indians."

Sad but true. On the other hand, we were able to MOVE the Indians.

Personally, I'm surprised that it's taken them so long.

Thanks Frank. I got mine at 6:56pm PT. Lucky I don't D/L anything unless I already know I want it. Lucky my virus detector is a nazi 'cause as we just discussed via phone...the d/l it tried to do was one or had one or was a wannabe.

Lucky you! Check your e-mail or your ICQ, I gave you the link as we discussed. Let me know once you finish getting it, so I can take it off the server.
