It's another WONDERFUL day with LJ|
I just noticed that LJ had changed my preferences and had my email displayed on my user info page. Thanks ever so, LJ! I just <3 all those Canadian pharmacists contacting me to offer me mail order brides and awesome investment oppertunities in Nigeria!
Current Mood: irritated

That's all kinds of awesome ;)
dammit! *goes to see if mine have been changed too* god I dislike LJ.

They've become so good at finding new and improved ways to piss off their user base that I'm half convinced it's part of some new anti-marketing strategy.
Maybe they truly believe that being utter dickwads will make LJ into the success that myspace is? but mostly, I just think they're morons. *hugs JF tight*
Hm. Mine just shows username(space)at(space)livejournal.com.
But then I have a little time left as a paid user.
Do you see the email even if you're logged out?

Yeah I could see it logged out as well :( I still have paid time left as well. I have been getting a LOT of spam recently.
It seems like a glitch that didn't hit all users: some people had their live journal email showing, and some (like me) had their actual email displayed.
I'd better go checkI dunno what that means. I know it's not my email, tho. However, I am getting increasing amounts of spam and don't know what to blame it on...
*opens another window & looks*
It just says email@example.com (Jabber)

I am getting a ton of spam too, actually.
Mine was displaying my gmail and my LJ email - both of which I set to hide, but LJ decided I needed to share with all our friends in Nigeria.

All those lonely Canadian pharmacists from Nigeria who want to hook you up with C-I-A-L-I-S and hot dates with horny housewives!
[head desk] So THAT'S where my spam has been coming from. [goes to change....AGAIN]

Was it displaying your @LJ.com email, or your real one?
My @lj.com one. The spam followed me to a new email when my old one went down for maintenance and I redirected it so I wouldn't lose notifications.
I recently changed my main email address, then created a bazillion forward addresses through my domains. Crazy but if I start getting spam, I'll know exactly which site it is originating from... and change the forward address quick!
This all stems from having 600 spam emails over 4 days time.. crappy porn messages, virus laden messages, Nigerian chain mail, home loans, and greeting card spam.

I've been getting buckets of spam in the last week - and it's getting past my filters which is extra annoying.
I only checked because someone commented elsewhere it had happened to them - but the glitch seems fairly rare.
I checked my settings and they were normal.
Yeah, I noticed the spam because it was getting past the filters.
Lovely. Now I have to go check mine. Thanks for the heads up.

It appears to be a rare-ish glitch. I've heard of three people so far with it - although I'm admittedly not looking. Most people just have their @lj.com email showing.
Oh THAT would be why my old address was spammed out the butt.
Way to GO, 6A.

It takes a special sort of person to work at 6A.
*considers sending that as a tag on a virtual Pepsi to Rachel*
*remembers that virtual Pepsi's are no longer available*
*waits knowing in another month or less 6A will provide yet more fodder to mock them on*
Thankfully, they seem to have missed me. Yay having a plus account?

Lucky! No idea what the pattern is, but it has happened to now 6+ people I've seen.
