OK ... so a lot of folks (like cydniey as per her recent post which had me checking things out over there) have gone and opened up accounts at "GreatestJournal.com" ... I went to have a look, fearing that some other "BTRIPP" might have snagged the name there. Now, I have NO recall of ever having even looked at GreatestJournal.com before, but there was a "BTRIPP" journal there (with no posts) whose info page had my main e-mail listed. How did this happen? Now, I know that I have a DeadJournal account (or at least I had one from years ago ... I assume it's still there), but I have no idea how this GreatestJournal thing came to be! I've successfully gotten the password e-mailed to me (which is formatted like I would typically do a PW, so I'm assuming that I did set this up at some point), but I'm amazed that I have zero recall of ever even being on their site previously. Very strange. Oh, well ... at least I have "my name" over there!
Am I the only person who thinks it's slightly ironic that folks are jumping ship over to GJ at the prospect of "changes" on LJ, whcen GJ has ADS already on it? It strikes me as odd that folks are leaving LJ in fear of change to go to a place that has one of the features (i.e. those Google ads) that they're so worried might show up here!
