LJ has finally gone too far. I've put up with them in some ways until now, but they've now sunk so low that nothing can redeem them, even fixing the latest fiasco.

LJ is now breaking their own privacy policy.

There's a HIDDEN javascript that redirects every link to one of about 150 e-commerce sites. A lot of the times the links no longer work, and you could end up on ebay, instead of another site they're trying to go to.

And LJ makes money on EVERY CLICK, while messing up your privacy.

In the end they're greedy bastards that will take you for every cent they can eke out of you.

You can opt out of this if you're ok using the admin console. Of course, if you're not logged into LJ, they manage to screw you over anyway.

More info, and even more info. Read this stuff, it's truly important you know what they're doing. Basically, they're stealing.

It's blippin scary what they're doing to their users. I refuse to pay LJ one cent if I can help it.

I'm on Dreamwidth, who are the most awesomest journaling site ever, and still on IJ.

This is my last post on LJ.
