"Suspicious comments" and "Spam comments": LJ decision to 'block' spam i

Originally posted by heeroluva at "Suspicious comments" and "Spam comments": LJ decision to 'block' spam is a big FAIL!
So I've been noticing in both my own journal and communities that I haven't been able to see some comments even thought it says there are more comments there than are actually showing up. Instead I'm getting a place holder that says (Spam comment) or (Suspicious comment).

Why are these showing up like this you may ask? In their rush to fight spam LJ has created a new filter that're AUTOMATICALLY TURNED ON in ALL journals and communities, which screens comments that are made with 'suspicious links' ie links that are not on their safe whitelist, so pretty much the majority of the internet. There is no noted way to add to the 'whitelist'.

What really gets me is that they didn't inform people that they were doing this until a week after it was done and that it was automatically turned on.

So how do I turn it off you might ask.

That's simple. Go to your Settings, click on the Privacy tab, and half way down where it says Spam Protection uncheck the box next to "Comments containing a link to a non-whitelisted domain will be marked as spam and moved to a special section." This applies to both personal journal and communities and the opinion has to be manually changed in each one.

While I understand how this could be a good idea, I think they went about it in a very backhanded way, and have implemented it poorly. There was no message to anyone that the link has been screened. It's automatically done. This went on for over a week before they said anything about it. There is still nothing in the FAQs about it even. The only way I found out about this way going through the support pages where people were reporting similar issues.

Please share this!

ETA: This links really illustrates the problems.

If you have noticed this problem with your comments in this community, please let me know and I'll unscreen your comments. I have changed the settings.

Thank you! ♥

[selling] Germany cosplay and America wig!


I'm selling a Germany cosplay and an America cosplay wig! I don't have as much time as I would like to cosplay, so I decided to sell these two things. The cosplay has only been worn once, and the wig has been gently used.

More information, pictures, and pricing available here at my journal!

Prices are negotiable, so don't be afraid to inquire!

Note: I'll throw in the foam head with the wig for an additional $3.

Warnings: None
Summary: Kink meme deanon. The prompt was: "Amerinon just found out that the word "influenza" is from the Italian language and it made me want to see one of the Italies taking care of his lover who has been stricken down with the flu. It could be N. Italy caring for Germany, S. Italy caring for Spain or even Chibitalia caring for Holy Roman Empire. The fluffier the better!"

Anime Boston 2011 - Hetalia Saturday photoshoot

HELLO ALL. AB11 was last weekend (hooray!) and I come bringing photos of the photoshoot. It was BEYOND massive (we had to move one time!) and I not only wanted to share the ridiculousness, but I'm wondering if anyone here was in this photoshoot (besides breagadoir , I know you were there.)


Here's a preview of me being stupid with my friend's (who went as Russia) sunflower. :D

[News] ComiXology: Digital Hetalia Manga to Remain on Sale

Well it seems that for the time being Hetalia will remain on sale in some form.

From AnimeNewsNetwork:

The Robot 6 blog of the North American site Comic Book Resources confirmed with ComiXology CEO David Steinberger that users who have purchased digital volumes of Hetalia - Axis Powers from Tokyopop via the ComiXology digital comics platform will retain access even after the company shuts down its North American manga publishing division. Steinberger added that the company does not plan to stop selling Hetalia volumes, but even if it did, past buyers will still be able to re-download the volumes.

Hetalia - Axis Powers is the only Tokyopop manga available on the ComiXology platform. Tokyopop plans to cease publishing manga in North America on May 31, but the company's new media and rights division will continue to operate.

As far as I can tell this applies for the Digital copies of Hetalia Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. I don't see any indication that Tokyopop will go through the trouble of releasing Vol. 3 as a Digital Release only - more likely they'll try to sell the license to another publisher (and it'll succeed, since Hetalia Vol. 2 is still on the New York Times bestseller list despite Tokyopop closing its doors) while Comixology will still distribute the Tokyopop versions of Volumes 1 and 2.
