I'm going to start locking most of my posts. One really can't tell who is going to read what one writes. I figured I could count on being a nobody to protect me. My illusion was shattered this morning when the GM of OHP found and commented on a post regarding opera in London. As you know, it's not the first time someone I didn't expect to be reading my journal did. Discretion is not one of my strengths, and this has gotten me in trouble on a few previous occasions. I just don't want to chance it anymore. I don't want some comment I make to come back and bite me in the ass and possibly affect my singing career. Thus, from now on I am friends-locking all my posts except for the book tracking and any silly memes I choose to do. If you happen to read my journal but aren't on my friends list, comment here if you want to be added.

So, not to be neurotic on your behalf or anything, but the Internet is the Internet. If you really don't want it to be out there, ever, your best bet is really not to post it.

And of course the most secure system is locked in a steel box, deep in an underground bunker, with no cables or wires coming in or out.

I'm not concerned about things being super secure. I'm only concerned about someone casually reading something that could come back to bite me. Simply friends-locking things is sufficient; I'm not too concerned.

Because, after all, even friends locked posts can get out with a little copy and paste....

Of course they can. I'm not going to sweat it. Friends-locking is sufficient to keep General Managers of random opera companies or obscure mezzos I didn't think were very good from accidentally stumbling on my posts. I'm not too worried about someone on my friends list tracking down little-known opera person to let them know that, oh my gosh, Derek thinks you're not a very good singer, or whatever. ;)

What is OHP??

And remember, your syndication isn't friends-locked, I don't think.

Opera Holland Park.

Syndication? I wasn't aware I had syndicated posts.

Yes you do. Try:


and you can see them. However, I think that LJ is a bit more sophisticated than I thought it was. Non-friends probably can't see private journal entries.
