This warning is taken from ongoingmelody about a really bad virus running around LJ right now.
" A terrible virus has been rapidly spreading itself through LiveJournal communities over the past few days. Basically, seemingly-harmless links are posted by a robot who hacks the maintainer's account. Once the links are clicked on and activated, a worm virus inserts itself into the user's computer. oceandezignz says: "The links in question take you to a Russian language NON-LJ website where you will end up with a keylogger on your computer that tracks your passwords and the like for all the services you use (LJ, email, etc)." Additionally, the maintainer(s) of the community get removed, and the community itself becomes helplessly subject to viruses and spam. "
I did some revamping of the layout and changed some settings on my profile because it started looking a little crowded. I did a minor friends cut of old/dead journals, but if you find yourself not being able to see my locked entries, there is a reason for that.
As you've noticed, I re-did friends only post and deleted the old one. People who cannot see my entries it might be because you didn't comment the previous friend only post when you tried to add me. I generally don't add people unless they comment somewhere. Also I found at least two journals that only have one or even no entries, I consider that lurking status.
I know I shouldn't be talking since I haven't been the best updater or commenter for the past year, but hopefully it'll get a little better in 2009.
i hate doing these but sometimes they're neccessary
i have currently made a friends cut just now. i didn't base it too much on comments but for some it was about comments. i've already deleted and banned all dead and old journals and journals that have moved to a different name. other journals that i have defriended belong to people that i might've gotten close to in the beginning but we're not so close anymore.
so if you can see any of my unlocked it means i have defriended you. i'm giving you guys three days to remove from your f-lists. if you don't do so in three days then i'm banning you as well.
i've made a friends cut...i really don't like doing these. it was based so much on commenting, although i would like someone of you to comment more (like the people in the list that are under 20) but i was based on not updating and for some, we don't have much interests in common anymore. i deleted some old journals.
for old journals, i'll be banning those since people don't go on them anymore. as for the others that are not old journals, this is two weeks notice. in two weeks if you don't delete me from your list then i'll be banning you as well. i'm sorry for doing this, i hope you guys understand.
