Oh BOY...

LJ will now be mining your data, starting in 10 days, which in conjunction with the witch hunt tactics of the last four months is rather upsetting. It looks benign at first, but they're basically looking at where you go in the website.
They say they'll only be sampling 5% of the existing LJ population, but they make no mention of HOW they'll notify these people that they're being watched.

Thankfully they give you instructions on how to opt out with only a little whine that it would skew the data.
Fuck the data I say...they've been attempting to fuck over the user base since May. Time for something of a cock block I say.


Tin foil hat wearers might go further and assume that by opting out, it'll signal to LJ that you're up to something illegal and thus SHOULD be watched, but I'll take my chances with the opt out.
