Want to remove serial addres from your friends of list?

serial adders, continued.
People you ban are now hidden from your friend-of list. We can also use the aggregate data (who is banned most often) to quickly find and suspend accounts which are used solely for harassment.

This isn't the final action we're taking. There's more that's going to happen. Read my prior posts before commenting and/or submitting an lj_biz post:

BTW, currently there's no easy way to ban somebody unless they leave a comment on an entry of yours. There will be. For now, you have to use the admin console:

http://www.livejournal.com/admin/console/

In the box there, you type:

ban_set whoever

Where whoever is the person you want to ban. You can do multiple lines, if you want:

ban_set somebody
ban_set somebody_else

Wow! I haven't banned anyone, yet 2 of the 6 serial adders who have friended me, have either deleted there accounts or unfriended me on there own.

The initial feeling is "Yeah", followed shortly by, "Damn, I suck so much even the serial adders are dropping me."

D'oh!

This is a great idea!!!

We need to find pictures of our friends and match them with famous people they look like. Likely I've already got skrape matched up with "Louise Porn". ;)

Okay, my Minions of the Less Than Virtuous*, fly like monkeys and bring me pictures!

* Not quite evil, just hanging out with the "wrong" crowd.

A note on banning serial adders:

It does remove them from your "Friends of" list, but you will still be on their friends list, and they can and will still watch your journal. I personally would rather not ban them so I have some clue as to who is reading my journal.

We, as a society, love to smash our idols. To build them up and then trow then to the ground.

I can only wonder what kind of idol I would be.

A great stone idol who would take generations to crush, but then would quietly fade, forgotten, into the ground?

Perhaps a wooden idol, which would burn brightly for a momment and then leave embers for people to reverently walk on?

Or a glass idol, shattering so spectacularly and leaving a hallowed ground that people fear to tread?

Maybe metal, to be melted down and reused for harvests or war?

I wonder.
