06:34 am - The My Family thing
At least, this is how I sort of feel right now. But, hopefully that will be changing in not too long. :-)
Edit 11:55: To be clear, I'm not actually feeling that lonely right this instant. But I am feeling sort of bereft of family. Partly because this meme has been floating around, and partly because it seems like it might be tantalizingly close to happening.
The pyzam.com site is really sneaky and underhanded.
Please do not use the 'auto-post' tool as it requires you give your LJ password to some random 3rd-party site. And note that the code it gives you includes a web bug (a 0-size image designed for tracking purposes). It's a web bug that I've removed from my posting.
Wow, that whole thing is an über-sneaky way of basically collecting a whole bunch of information from hapless social networking site users. How distressing. The web bug doesn't show up in the code they say they're giving you to copy, it only shows up in the code you paste.
I do not think I trust gigya.com much. And trusting these people with your LJ password would be the height of foolishness. If they're willing to be sneaky and underhanded in one way, they certainly are willing to treat your password with the same level of disregard for you and your wishes.
