Why does someone always have to ruin it?

Hello folks,
So, because of the concern with bloglines.com taking content from LJs and posting it and also claiming they own the content once they've kidnapped it, I've decided to friends-lock my fics. If you want to read 'em, please friend me and I'll friend you back as soon as I notice. (You could also e-mail me: elfscribe5@yahoo.com.) Sorry about this. Sheesh. Here's more info if you care to read about it: http://www.livejournal.com/users/stewardess_lotr/111539.html

Supposedly Brad & Co., and talking about creating an option to opt out of entries being archivable by external companies, so that would be awesome if that comes through.

Initially he was just sitting on his hands, but it looks like the shit-storm convinced him.

Umm, I just went looking for my own name at feedster.com (I wrote to Bloglines already and they agreed not to archive my LJ), and found that they had archived you, so you might want to ask them to remove all content from your journal.

Just a heads up.

Hey Milady,
Thanks so much for discovering this. I find it really unsettling to think my stuff is archived on a site without my knowledge. Do you know who I write to get it removed?

Yep, you can go to this address and fill out the form: http://feedster.net/feedback.php?action=capture_problem&ipaddress=

I got a response within hours saying that my two journals would never be archived (they hadn't been; I just wanted to nip the problem before it started).

Thanks so much, sweetheart. Went and did it. Now we'll see.

Well, I've e-mailed feedster twice now and they still haven't removed my material. I'm getting really ticked off.
A wild and untamed thing

I'm very unsettled by the thought of someone taking a bunch of stuff off my journal and claiming they own it. I guess I'll have to check out bloglines and see if they have any of *my* stuff. I think I had posted a few fics a long time ago before I flocked my journal. *sigh* Well, I'm glad I'm still on your flist. ;)
