New Online Networking Stuff & Changes to My Posting & Comment Policies [Jan. 21st, 2008|07:25 pm]

       Well it's been a few years since I've posted to this journal. 2 1/2 to 3 if memory serves. I suppose that it's because I really don't care to share too much of my life with people who I most likely don't know, and as a rule, I suspect the motives of those who want to learn intimate details about me without getting to know me. No problem, this service, and other services that I'm on still serve a useful purpose or two for someone like me: I have the ability to share my opinions & perspectives on certain subjects without having to turn them into articles on my website. Additionally, I can announce the posting of new articles & other material to my website on these services when I do choose to update my site somehow.

       Anyhow, I've decided to allow generally anyone to comment on my journal now instead of just friends, although from now on I'll be moderating the comments from non-friends and non-registered users.

       Beyond that, I've taken the time to update my profile and interests, so there's a little bit more to read about me.

      In the future, I'll be making an effort to synchronize material on my Livejournal with the content on my Tribe.net account, which has features that I like that LJ lacks, although LJ has some features that Tribe lacks as well...I suppose that you could say that I'm taking up the slack with both of these. Don't look for me on MySpace, I'm not there, although there is someone on there with an ID of "Hildolf"...that person is not me. Just for shits & giggles, I had a MySpace account back in 2006 for perhaps a week, but dropped the account after acquiring an online stalker (nothing says "I adore you from afar" like playing headgames with someone via an online networking service.) Considering how long it takes to even load a page (I'm still on dial-up, I have neither a need nor an interest in high speed connection), and the penchant that perverts and mental cases seem to have for using MySpace in particular to facilitate their dysfunctions, it just holds no allure for me. Yeah, I know, I probably just offended some MySpace user; I'm sure they'll get past it.

      Posting probably isn't going to be a regular thing for me, probably only coming into play when I have some sort of announcement to make, or when I feel the need to articulate something that bears remembering, or may be useful to others. I have no intention of returning to my previous behavior where the internet took up a considerable amount of my time...I have too many things (too many good things) to do in the real world that warrant my attention more than keeping track of the latest craze on the web, or the latest spat on a newsgroup or E-list.
