Aghhhhh okay so I've been blocked on writing in my journal for a while now. I keep wanting to post stuff and linkspam, but I get stuck trying to decide whether to crosspost or not.

Mostly what's stopping me is the Driving Revenue stuff.

If you don't know what I'm talking about: Driving Revenue stuff (cut because most of you have heard this before) )

The more I think about it, the less I want to put up posts with any kind of links on LJ, and that's hard, because links are the backbone of the web. How will I show you guys COOL (and DISGUSTING) stuff if I can't link you?

So, there's this Three Weeks for Dreamwidth, a celebration of DW going into open beta, which is a content-fest where you post (select) entries to only your Dreamwidth journal and not repost it anywhere else for three weeks. So far there's been a lot of amazing and positive content. I'm not officially part of it, and the fest doesn't ask for all crossposting to stop, but I feel like I need to step away in order to get past this block. I'm turning off crossposting for the next three weeks; I haven't yet decided what I'm going to do long-term.

*deep breath* If you want to say something, I've turned on screening for anonymous comments on this entry for both LJ and DW. I've also disabled IP logging for comments on LJ.

Urgent security notice: embedded content security breach

And a few things:

Easiest way to know if you've been infected is to look at the top entry on, and check for any <lj-embed> tags. (Mine had four in a row; I don't know if that is the case for everyone)

LiveJournal has temporarily disabled embeds for your safety, so if you're not already infected, you can't be anymore.

Dreamwidth is not affected. Clone sites like InsaneJournal and DeadJournal, I'm not sure; my guess is they're not, but it depends on how they've set up embeds.

(I know it's irrational, but my journal feels dirty now :-()

ETA: After poking about a bit, I am pretty sure (some 95%) that IJ and DJ are not affected
