Well, a big old howdy-do and thanks to all the folks who are assuming I'll run right out and break the confidentiality of their locked posts.

Your (and there are a LOT of people in that your) faith is heartwarming. Really.

EDIT: Okay, let me explain my understanding and philosophy of Internet Privacy.

If you say something on the Internet, it's like shouting it on a street corner. Even if you say something in a locked post, it's like saying something in the middle of a party. If one doesn't want people either repeating or hearing what he or she says (or doesn't trust that they won't do so by accident), I strongly suggest that the invitations be strictly monitored.

I'm not saying that the LJ/FB script is good, or okay, or whatever. I don't even think LJ itself is good or okay anymore, hence the fact that my original posts all come from DreamWidth these days. However, I am saying that if privacy is a major concern for you, you need to be the first person to take responsibility for it by carefully setting up and maintaining filters, and by seriously examining what readers go into what filters.
