I've posted a couple ideas to the LJ suggestion board about things that would make maintaining this journal a lot easier for me. Unfortunatly no one thinks that these ideas are wanted or easy to implement.

What this means is that it is not easy to maintain an LJ at a level of medium paranoia. You can either do total paranoia or none at all, and anything inbetween is damn difficult. I've tried to maintain medium paranoia for awhile, and it just isn't working out, so I'm afraid that I'm going to have to switch over to the method that seems to be encouraged by the LJ staff, iron fisted dictatorship.

From now on a fair percentage of my posts are going to be friends only, and I'm going to add as friends the people I'd like to be able to see them. If anyone has been lurking around here, or stumbles accross this LJ in the future and is interested in seeing more, let me know, and I'll consider adding you to the list. If you're someone that I don't know, it's pretty likely that you'll be added. If you're someone I know, I'll have to think about it some, because although I've made some wonderful friends with random people on LJ, it's the people that I know in the real world that can have a large impact on my life.

For anyone I know who doesn't get added to the list, please don't be upset about it. I might not feel safe opening up to you, but you do matter to me, otherwise I wouldn't care if you were on the list or not.

where to jump in...
you left a comment on one of my Islamic musing posts, and i didn't particularly agree with it, but you're the first commenter i don't know irl, so it made me curious.

i don't feel comfortable, for some reason, mentioning here in front of everybody what i find intriguing about you. i will say, though, that i too have been working for a "medium paranoia" vibe and it's damn hard. in fact, i think i'm going to take an LJ break for a few days and see how that feels. right now, public posting is not feeling right.

however, if you choose, take this as an invitation to talk more in private email...

Hmmm, not sure how to email you since you didn't give an address and don't seem to have one listed in your bio.

Re: where to jump in...

that's odd. i'll go rectify that right now. i seem to remember checking something when i first set things up that said "yes, show my email addy," which is why i thought it would be automatic...

anyway, it's daltonG@mindspring.com.
