Just a quick post; I saw a post on this over at authoressnebula and wanted to make sure my position was clear.
DO NOT LINK OR COMMENT ON THIS JOURNAL AND CROSSPOST TO FACEBOOK OR TWITTER.
I have FB and Twitter. There is a reason I have LJ, and there's a bigger reason the two do not mix and never will. This is fandom. This is my escape from RL. This is not the place I want my underage cousins or homophobic relatives poking around. These are not the things I want my bosses to be reading. Full stop.
So far, I'm going to leave everything up and unlocked. I'm hoping, given the screams of protest (the official poll is currently over 10,000 for 'and who came up with THIS stupid idea?') that LJ will see the light, remember the minor details of, oh, I don't know, how much effort they've put into allowing us to keep our privacy, and remove this option. I will be keeping a close eye on this and I might f-lock if the need arises.
I do have a Dreamwidth account, and this might motivate me enough to go check out A30 and getting an account up there. So even if I lock this down, my stories will be accessible elsewhere and those links will go up here.
Obviously, if you want to link to FB or Twitter, that's your call. It becomes my call if you comment here and link that comment there, because then my content is on your FB and Twitter for the world to see. If that happens, I will cut you instantly. No second chances, no appeals, you're gone. My privacy is one thing I don't mess with. If that offends you, please feel free to defriend me, no hard feelings.
