I know most of you are great about privacy issues, but just so we're clear, here are some rules in light of the recent changes in LJ policy (you should read if you haven't yet):

1) If I post something here, public or not, you should NEVER ever EVER crosspost a comment on my post to Facebook, Twitter, or elsewhere.

2) If you want to link to any public post I make from anywhere on LJ, that's fine. Within the LJ community I don't mind links to my journal floating about.

3) If you want to link to any public post I make on LJ from anywhere else on the web, please ask my permission (forwarding to someone via email is fine - I'm talking on your website or other page). I don't really try to disguise my identity on LJ but I also don't broadcast the fact that I have one.

4) Don't ever forward links or references to my friends-locked posts without my permission. I do use filters. Most of them are just for relevance to the readers (for instance, most people I'm friends with here aren't on my weight loss filter) but I also just like knowing who knows things.

These are pretty common-sense and you all are smart cookies, but I figured I'd throw that out there.

I have some stuff I want to post, but I'm not gonna until they clear up the mess above.

I find it amazing that even after the facebook privacy debacles, LJ still initiated this "service" as automatically opting users in.

Do we know how this works with protected posts? Do commenters still have the option to crosspost to FB or twitter?

Commenters can crosspost their comments regardless of post security. So for instance, if you have a friends-locked post and I comment on it, I can post that comment to Facebook without your permission. Not the content of your post, but it does reveal that you made a post and what my comment was. Hilarious!

That's a problem. Of course, I haven't posted in the last five months--I think I'll be continuing that trend.

yeah, seriously. (hug)

Because there weren't enough comments without context floating around Facebook...

This definitely seems like something that one should be able to enable or disable on a per-journal basis, yeah. If you don't want people to be able to crosspost comments they make in your journal, then they shouldn't be able to. Of course, people can and will manually crosspost anything they want, but that doesn't mean we should give them tools that make it easy.

I'm pretty public on the web, but I'm extraordinarily lucky that I'm able to be that way (for instance, I don't have emotionally abusive parents, or a job that requires me to censor myself online much), and I understand that not everyone can be or wishes to be so public.

I hadn't heard about this until you posted. I would like to register my complaint: ARGH!
