I discovered that I can send in LJ posts by email. I sort of knew this already, but I discovered something even more interesting, which is that LJ will accept GPG signed email.

This makes me very pleased as it suddenly makes the feature secure. It also opens the door to LJ eventually using my GPG key to identify me for other things as well. It, in fact, opens the door to me putting my LJ on my own personal website and still have it show up in LJ and still being able to set up LJ people as my friends. It allows LJ to become distributed! Yay!

Using GPG keys in this way is a very CAKE-like thing to do.

Anyway, I just had to post about this, and test it. I also had to test how the auto-format feature (which I never use as I always write my posts in straight HTML) interacts with email posting.
