Testing

I've just re-enabled Facebook connect (I think without getting comments cross-posted although who knows!). This is a test to see what it's doing.

Incidentally I'm not under the illusion that I can force anyone with access to a flocked entry not to discuss its contents with others any more than I can prevent anyone repeating a private conversation I have with them face to face, although I reserve the right to take a dim view of such behaviour (depending, of course, upon what is discussed and with whom). I can see that livejournal's new and exciting ticky boxes increase the likelihood that flocked information could be exposed by mistake but I suspect the possibility for something really incriminating getting out are small. Obviously, if it does turn out to be a problem, I shall be turning off commenting on livejournal and restricting it to Dreamwidth only but I very much doubt it'll come to that. I mean you are all sensible enough not to tick a ticky box simply because it's there, right?

We saw Ben Goldacre talk at Eastercon though, I think, I already had his book, Bad Science, following a recommendation from [livejournal.com profile] lil_shepherd. It is more carefully structured than his talk was and has more space to explore its argument, which is a definite plus because he never quite got to his point at Eastercon.
