Re: your lj, there's a new opt-out feature they automatically turned on without telling us to prevent spam, but this is the associated text:

"Spam Protection: Comments containing a link to a non-whitelisted domain will be marked as spam and moved to a special section."

And I can't find the Special Section where comments go? I know it's spam-protection, but it's also creepy information control. What's a white-listed page? How does that work? Why doesn't lj even tell me it's screening comments, or where they go? Why can't I access, review and unscreen them? Why use 'white-list,' which implies black-listing? The lj company can't POSSIBLY catalogue all benign pages out there to white-list them, and this eats comments /from even your signed-in friends/ with unrecognized (non-corporate?) links in them. I've turned it off, you might want to as well, if you ever want anyone to be able to link you anywhere.
