Ta mère suce des ours dans la forêt!

Dear Natasha,

Hope you don't mind me writing; it's just that there's more than one thing I need to ask you.

Where do you get off, spamming my livejournal with your asenine exhortations to go see Mel Gibson's film on the passion of Christ? If you think this is in any way helpful to get people to watch it in droves, think again!

What do you care whether I'm a Christian and have seen the light? Why ask me that dumb question almost each and every day?
If you're hoping to drum up support for your own narrow-minded and bigotted interpretation of Christianity in this way, don't bother!

Lastly, why tell me my journal is interesting and you like the lay-out of it, when it is abundantly clear to me that you do not mean any of it? I thought one of the Ten Commandments was that thou shalt not lie?

You see, Natasha, all you're succeeding in doing, is to piss people off and if anything, more resolved not to go see that movie you feel so strongly about. And because I doubt that you'll take any argument that I might make into consideration, I have no alternative but to disable the option for posting anonymously to my journal. Unfortunately, that means that from this day forward, no one who isn't on livejournal themselves can post their infinitely more interesting and welcome replies to any topic I decide I want to discuss on this here webspace that I pay for.

I don't mean to be rude, as rude as you; and I would explain in more detail, but frankly, I don't think you'll ever see, not in a million years -- and I'd only waste another two valuable minutes of my life with your insincerity.

Who is this person who is spamming people in the name of Jesus? I've missed all this, having gone friends' only recently. Mind you, I was always registered users only for comments.

Perhaps I should go public again and allow anonymous posters - I love a bit of evangelical-happy-clappy bashing.

I don't know. I'm not even sure that it's just the one person and not a whole Sunday school class! The last message I received on the subject of that film and how happy whoever wrote it was they were saved was signed 'Natasha', so that's the name I used to rail against! ;-)

I've relented somewhat. I'm now screening anonymous posts.

I must admit that when I can spare the time, I'm always happy to have an exchange of ideas with the Jehova's Witnesses and Mormons that ring the doorbell on occasion. I may be a lapsed Catholic, but I know my Bible, and can argue with the best of them! Come to think of it, I know my Q'uran and Bhagavad Gita, too; so I'm never short of a few answers!

LJ Comments
I am relatively new to LJ, but that's how I view it...as a journal. I found yours and read it because I find it interesting. If someone doesn't like it, or any other here, they can simply not look at it. If they absolutely must express their opinion somewhere, they need to start their own. Hope disabling the anonymous post helps.

Hello vegmb, welcome aboard!

Well, it would...but in the end I just couldn't take that drastic a measure. People have posted to my journal anonymously before, with posts that were on topic or relevant in another way, and I have enjoyed that. Taking away that option would feel like cutting off my nose to spite my face, and ultimately, I didn't want to do that. I'm screening anonymous posts now.

Your post header made me laugh, because I am 12

It's not my own invention -- buffyx said it to me first, but because I am 12 too, I simply had to steal it and use it as the header for this post.

only the cool kids

Really? Oh that makes it alright, then ;-)...
Seriously, I think we're dealing with an unintended downside to lj going invitation code-free. We'll probably see a whole lot more spamming occuring in the next couple of weeks -- be interesting to see what admin's gonna do about it.

ReL Your mother sucks bears in the fôret! Eh??? I must have missed something.

I just got one of those annoying fundie spams in my very own LJ. Gave me chest pains. And I have disabled anonymous commenting, but reading this thread is making me think twice about it. Which makes me even madder!

Your mother sucks bears in the forest

I am the French Taunter, farting in these fundie pig-dogs' general direction! Although I doubt they'd get the reference...;-)

And I have disabled anonymous commenting, but reading this thread is making me think twice about it.

There is the less drastic step of screening anonymous posts, which means you'll still get to see the comments, but no one else does until you approve or delete them. If you enable IP Comment logging, you'll be able to trace where the spam originates from, or have their ISP do that for you. Harassing people on the Internet is a punishable offense, and these people are definitely breaking netiquette with their unsolicited advertising.

Re: screening anonymous posts...

Thanks for the tip!

(BTW, loved that movie! Not The Passion, but MPaTHG.)

It's just been voted Best Loved British Film Ever in some kind of survey, I heard...

It's one of my two favorite comedies, along with The Producers. Funny, funny, funny.
