taken from a friend's journal
A website has been created, the purpose of which, i am at odds. The
Frienditto is used to "archive LJ posts." The posts archived can be
their own, which is certainly fine, but unfortunately through the
wonder of the LJ friends list, archives will also include the posts in
communities, and the posts belonging to other people. Think about that
for a moment; someone taking your friends only, filtered posts and
making them public for anyone to see. That is bothersome to me.
Yet, that is what happens on Frienditto.
Please don't use Frienditto. Don't give Frienditto access to your
journal by giving them your LJ userid and password.
i don't want my
posts ending up on Frienditto. That is a violation of my privacy. I
access to my journal which, aside
from one public post, is completely friends only. In case my intent
isn't clear in this matter, i don't want anyone reading my journal
entries aside from you
, to whom this ability
was specifically granted
. Please respect my privacy and my
trust - don't let my posts end up on Frienditto through your friends

This is LJ Abuse's position regarding
Frienditto is not affiliated with LiveJournal
in any way. As such, this website does not have access to any entries
which are not publicly viewable. If someone provides them with their
LiveJournal username and password, however, it gives this site access
to all non-public entries that account would have access to. We can
only recommend that you do not provide your username and password to
any person or website to ensure the security of your account.
Additionally, if you believe anyone on your Friends list may have
provided their login information to this website, we can only advise
that you remove them from your Friends list. This website will have
access to your Friends-only entries as long as any person on your
Friends list has given the site access. If any content is present on
Frienditto which you do not wish to be there, you will need to resolve
the issue with that website.
I find this entire thing
alarming, mainly because i truly suspect that the creators of
Frienditto, LJ users themselves, completely understood the
ramifications behind the design of what they were doing and created the
site with the intent to be able to see friends-only posts on LJ.
