First on the agenda: it seems pingback is worse than previously suspected. Shutting down pingbacks on your own journal doesn't work, pingbacks happen both to and from locked posts according to murky and inconsistent conditions. Not very cool. Pingbacks work on blogs because if you're blogging on Wordpress or something you expect everything you write to be visible to the general public. It would take actual thought to make a pingback system that works in LJ's culture and nobody has bothered with that.

Second: the Facetwit debacle is not making me happy. I have some overlap between LJ and Facebook and don't want the two dragged together by a careless comment. I keep my Facebook locked down pretty tight as far as possible, but the way they change settings around stealthily doesn't give confidence.

Third: is getting under way. I don't know yet how I'm going to handle things: do I want to hide all my LJ posts and use LJ just to comment on communities I'm in, or use Dreamwidth's crossposting feature to keep both journals active, or something else? Those who have no intention of moving to DW, please let me know so I can put you on a special reading filter and see your posts easily. I'm adding people on DW as I find them :)

And for anyone who would like to try Dreamwidth: invite codes available here.

I like to draw. I like to draw on people, sometimes, with felt pens or ballpoint pens or with that nice herby-smelling henna stuff in a tube. Now I find that I have a friend who has a friend who has tattooing equipment and would be happy to let me use it. This is almost tempting even though when you draw on your friends and you make a mistake you can't throw them away like with paper. It would almost be interesting to try.

BUT I believe that tattooing involves needles and maybe even blood, not quick needles at the doctor's and all over with but protracted needles for as long as it takes to finish the drawing. There's just no way. I don't have any sort of needle or blood phobia, it's just that I don't like hurting people. Not even if they would quite like me to. This is where the golden rule falls down, isn't it? Even if they say they don't mind, even if it's what they really wanted, I would never be able to bring myself to stick needles in people.

Related to this, I am going to rant a bit. )
