this journal is almost entirely1 friends-only and/or custom-filtered. please comment to this post if you wish to be added2.

-m-


1. i say "almost entirely" here because i had sloppily referred to it as being friends-only elsewhere, and some pedant ;-) informed me that some items were publically visible. i have reviewed3 said items and made all bar one of them friends-only, but that one will remain visible, as will (naturally!) this one.

2. i am not normally quite as officious and unwelcoming as this post makes me sound. whilst i am spiky, my bark is very much worse than my bite!

3. on 2005/05/21. this post is back-dated to avoid cluttering up anyone's friends' page, and to avoid it being the most recent item visible for any of my lj-friends should they come to my journal, while simultaneously being the most recent item visible for anyone not on my friends list ;-)

Most of the better things I post are friends-only. If you're interested, I'm mouseworks there.

Why did you delete your journal only to repoen it again?

a) to regroup when under attack; but more pertinently
b) because i have photo albums on pics.livejournal.com whose URLs are advertised outside LJ, and that people might reasonably wish to view, refer to, and link to.

... That doesn't actually answer my question.
*confusion*

I think it answers it perfectly. She deleted because of inappropriate comments. She has restored it to allow people to view her photos, which have been linked from other sites.

Doubtless.
But it really doesn't. You can delete inappropriate comments individually. It does not require a full delete of a journal. IF that were the case, to reinstate the journal would be to reinstate the questionable content, no? One would thus assume if you felt so strongly about..whatever (i have no idea what but I'm sure I would love to know), then the last thing you would do was reignite your journal. (In combination with that, the reason for her undeleting her journal is void, for I am sure LJ is not the only place in the net to store pictures and links etc; if she were so concerned about them, surely it eliminates her reason for deleting the journal in the first place aswell)

Hence I asked her why she did it. (and I believe i did not seek any response from you :) ) Hence I redidect my question at her.

i deleted it on the advice of a friend, who suggested that lj might be doing be more harm than good. deleting the comments could have happened, true, but for various reasons i didn't feel comfortable doing that.

yesterday i discovered that i couldn't still access my own photos, which i wanted to see for a variety of reasons, and which i have not got stored in any fashion other than chaotic elsewhere. i am not sure that it will remain activated in the long term; i intend to move my photos to fotopic when i have the energy to do so. i will then decide whether, on balance, lj is good or bad for me.

that particular unpleasantness is unlikely to reignite, as the relevant people have been removed from my friends-list. if they choose to comment on a rare public post such as this one, i can always freeze the thread and make this post friends-only, and post a new similar one with comments disabled. or i could pre-emptively ban them, i suppose.

Tried to message you but I couldn't, due to your settings. Anyway, I've friended you.
