dude, try less hostility. all you had to do was ask to be taken off...no one's point was to snoop.
and i don't quite get how you would lose your ability to have random stangers posting insight, since i have no idea who you are anyhow. plus, you can always take yourself off
the postings yourself if you want, no one holds you captive. but i'll do it. no worries.
plus, just a note about livejournal, and a bit of apology and explanation...livejournal isn't about snooping, it's about becoming closer with real people...but the anonymity tends to remain if you want it to...no one seeks you out in reality unless you want it...trust me, this is the unspoken livejournal ethic. it took weeks before some of the people on lj who found each other decided to meet...there was no forced activity, we didn't even know until later on who each other were really. so understand how i feel i am really not trying to invade anyone's privacy, and if you wish to remain anonymous, then it can be that way...just remember, livejournal IS inherently public, and by letting anyone know you have it, having friends listed, posting public entries[random can send people to your journal] you are susceptible to voyeurism, but livejournal to me seems to generate a beneficent and supportive community, rather than a snooping and sneaky one. this is why it is successful as a volunteer run project. community.
as a final note, i remind you i am taking you off the community list. you are free at any time to rejoin by going to the reedlj userinfo page. sorry for the intrusion, -ryan.
