I don't enforce my anonymity very much on LJ. Mostly this is because I don't particularly care if Fandom folks know my RL name.

However, if I EVER catch ANYONE crossposting a comment from my journal to Facebook or Twitter, you'll be banned from commenting on my LJ with no second chances. If it's a mistake I'll understand, as long as the comment is removed from the relevant social network ASAP, but there's a no-tolerance policy in place from now on intentional crosspostings.

My anonymity may be scant, but I have very good reasons for it.

Now, if you're like me and use your keyboard more than your mouse and have already been sent to the damn 'Settings' site five times in the past half-hour, here's what you do:

Go here to get Greasemonkey, in case you don't already have it. It works with Firefox, but most of you are using that one already.

Then go here to get the handily written DisConnect for LJ, by [livejournal.com profile] daluci. It'll remove the damn checkboxes from your comment pages, reducing the likelihood of accidents.

(Other things I use Greasemonkey to do: It tells me which comments I haven't seen before when I'm perusing massive comment threads, such as at the kinkmeme and it also expands nested comment threads for me.)

If you're on Chrome, go here for info on how to run userscripts.

If you're a MAC user, you can use the Greasekit - there is a more detailed tutorial here.

Thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] txvoodoo for the information.

I really don't get why anyone would want to use this function. I mean, for posts maybe. But comments? That's just total asshattery.

Great post.

It's all the rage -- trying to have everything able to post everywhere. IMHO that is just creepy and invasive. How much "mental effort" do we need to take now with stuff we post to LJ knowing it may be reposted elsewhere?

I have no idea why anyone would want to use this. Though I suppose there must be someone who doesn't think it's an awful idea.

The one good thing, I didn't know half the things I could do with Greasemonkey!

Thanks for the links - though I'm not on Firefox, so...?? Anyhoo, it's the thinking behind it that boggles me. Why on earth do they assume we want to share everything with everyone in our lives all the time?? Did they not listen to the gmail Buzz crap? Let's see how long it takes them to take it back.

Yay, no more checkboxes! ♥

Bonus, a working Expand script (my old one was borked from 2008 -- works on IJ but not LJ)

Thank you so much~

thank you! got linked by a friend and it works perfectly! The only one problem is that it interacts with the "randomize lj icon button" but it's something I can live without =)

Greasemonkey is an add-on for firefox, so yes you can get rid of it. She linked where you can get it- just click the button and it should install it onto firefox for you, then you have to add the script that actually hides the buttons.

"oh lj no" totally sums it up.

Thank you for this post - I hadn't heard about this before. I shall be following these instructions (tomorrow when I am not exhausted and can think straight).
