Just for the record

So far today I've deleted two comments from two "different" people who had evidently not actually read the posts (or at least were unable to reply to them in any coherent way) but were presumably hoping to be friended as a result of commenting and complimenting me on my post. Both "replies" were virtually identical. This is usually a sign of an impending spam storm or scam.

Needless to say I have deleted both posts and blocked these accounts from commenting in my journal again - I will do the same to any other post that shows the same hallmarks of coming from an automated lying scumbag. I do not friend people casually, and when I do so I make bloody sure that they are real people, not sock puppets.

Since people who do this get journal names by accessing someone's friends list, don't be surprised if this happens to you too, and don't be tempted to friend someone who cozies up to you this way - it's usually a VERY bad idea.
