PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR ALL ON LJ

If you get an IM from an unknown person on G-Mail, AIM, etc. saying “Your friends-only posts have been stolen” with a link that includes your username, don’t click it. Lord knows what it does, but some testing in IM convo reveals it’s definitely a bot.

In other words, YOUR FRIENDS-ONLY POSTS HAVEN’T BEEN STOLEN. And under NO circumstances should you click on the link.

Also, don’t put your G-Mail address in your LJ profile, because you get stuff like this apparently.

    Phew. I’d hate for the world to know about my period and my dead Mom.

      They already do. I told everyone, Maeve. I was like “GUESS WHAT? Maeve has a menstrual cycle”

      Your secret is out.

        FUCK! I hate you.

        On a lighter note (like the last days of my cycle?) I have a borrowed car for tomorrow and I’ll be in reliable cell service. Coffee party, take 3?

    That shit is precisely why I took my AIM screen name out of my lj userinfo!

      See, that’s the thing. Your AIM s/n (and your e-mail) is safe because they do stuff to mask it from bots/crawlers/etcetera. They don’t, however, seem to do that with GAIM.

        I was getting messages from that robot on AIM.
