Among the best April Fools jokes today are LJ’s own pranks of changing “Friends” to “Stalkers” and creating lj_serialadder, who appears to have friended just about everyone, at least briefly. Count the sheer number of whining lamers in that journal. Astonishing.
Gmail, Google’s proposed mail service, seems to be for real. One to watch, anyway.
I got into a brief flame war on lj_biz for pointing out that it’s possible to spam via LJ by sending out lots of community invites. People, if you’re using the DCC you know you have to whitelist sources of legitimate bulk email. So, I’ve not caused LJ’s emails to disappear into a bottomless pit.
On that subject, the DCC plugin for Spampal is in beta-testing, so the DCC is not just for Unix users anymore.
