A note for my LJ friends

If you would rather follow me on dreamwidth, I am at innerbrat; everything the ends up here always also ends up there.

If the friends page changes come in and make my fpage unreadable, then I will have to do the work of tracking down everyone who crossposts, but at the moment I prefer reading my friendspage on LJ than DW - because I RP on DW and therefore logout of my main account a lot.

That's not the point of this entry.

The point is that spam is currently getting out of control on my LJ. I have been going through the old posts that are the biggest problems and disabling comments, but the new posts are also causing problems as I post.

So if you currently read and comment on my LJ rather than my DW - would disabling comments on future LJ posts seriously affect your willingness to comment? If so, do let me know. I currently would rather put up with spam in order to continue conversations.

I absolutely have zero issues with you disabling comments. I have other ways to make my opinions known!

I'm getting lots of spam too, but it's all anonymous. Isn't it possible to turn anonymous comments off? Real humans usually have OpenID or Twitter or similar.

You're right. I hadn't turned off anonymous comments as a point of principal, but there are other places for anonymous commenters.

I usually reply to your posts on LJ here simply because I have a tendency to read my f-list on LJ first and then on DW. (Most of my non-Milliways friends still blog only on LJ.) The only drawback to posting on DW is that when I use my phone, there is an LJ app that I find easier to use for replies than posting through a browser for DW, but I don't use my phone to post that often yet. (And while I know DW lacks the resources to develop an app now, I can't imagine they won't find a way to create one at some point.)

I respond here. Depends if you want to leave your posts here public or not as that can cut down a lot of spam too.
