ZOMG! People can find me on the INTERNETS [Sep. 1st, 2010|08:22 pm]
[emotional state |awakeawake]

Wait, if I post something on the Internet, it's not secure? But it has a little "lock" picture. That totally meant that no one that I didn't want to see it could see it. It totally protects from people copy-and-pasting, screen-shotting, or letting other people read it over their shoulders!

*rolls eyes*

But seriously folks, while I respect the level of privacy people want to have on their journals, and I hope that people respect me in kind, I know very damn well that what you send out into the Internet, even e-mails, isn't all that secure, and can come back to bite you on the ass.

http://crschmidt.net/dl/facebook-comment.png , for the record. There is a link to the thread, a subject of the comment, and a snippet of text from the comment. The link to the thread, I fully admit is information disclosure.

The fact that my LJ is crschmidt is something that I feel I should be within my 'rights' disclosing. Not everyone is comfortable with it, but if I am, I don't feel that my friends should feel that it's their position to get upset at me for it.

The text of my comment, and the subject of my comment, are within my control. If I was worried that posting them to Facebook would cause negative consequences, it would be my responsibility to keep that in mind.

I don't think that LJ is in the wrong by allowing people to post from LJ to Facebook. I feel that the technical implementation leaves some things to be desired (but what implementation doesn't?). Other than that, I think that this is just people getting upset over nothing.
