LJ has implemented a new feature: you can now crosspost your entries and comments on other people's entries - even the flocked posts - on Facebook and Twitter. Aren't you happy to know that comments on your flocked content may end up over there? No? Really? How weird *ironic*

- LJ announcement
- Link to disable the feature so that you do not crosspost accidentally
- Script to get rid of the Facebook/Twitter checkboxes
- Poll to express how much you enjoy the idea

Courtesy of becca_radcgg via badboy_fangirl: this should prevent the facebook/twitter checkboxes from displaying:

⇒ Go to Custom CSS, paste or add to your layout .b-repost-item {display:none} into the Custom stylesheet box and save changes.

NB: This trick only impacts your layout. If someone has turned on the feature by default, their comments will still be cross-posted (eta: except on FO entries).
Apparently, you need to paste the line at the top of your custom layout. I tried adding it at the end and it did nothing. At the top, works like a charm ♥

Although I don't use it, I've had a Dreamwidth account for a while. If you're already on my flist here and I find you on DW, chances are I'll add you over there too, just in case ;) I also have a few invite codes to give out. Just send me a PM if you're interested.

I don't even have a Facebook account. I'm a bit paranoid about the info I share online so a site where you (are supposed to) register under your real name? Not so much. My twitter account is eclair_de_lune and I tweeted a grand total of two times. Moreover, given the reactions, I don't think anyone from my flist would repost on FB or Twitter except accidentally.
Sorry for the capslock.

I think we're connected there already.
Yes, we are. I gave you an invite code to create your account: you had no other choice than friending me over there too *g*

Yes, it was the principle, wasn't it? It looks like LJ might be modifying this facility though, if the latest post reads how I think it reads!

Yes, you did give me an invite code!! I remember!

you had no other choice than friending me over there too *g*

I did have a choice! And I chose to join you!

Going for catching up again!!

I've seen their post in the news too and, apparently, cross-posting from flocked entries won't be possible. Same for screened comments (I guess that if you *really* don't want people to cross-post their comments in your LJ, you can always screen all comments by default and unscreen them when you read them...)
If I understood the entry right, anyway.

I did have a choice! And I chose to join you!
I know. I was joking *hugs*
