That-a way

May. 1st, 2020

Recently I've mostly been putting links on Twitter, since I can't think of anything else to post. I completely understand getting annoyed with this stuff. I've also mostly migrated to Fartbook or just not using social media at all. There's also this [Mastodon] which I'm tying to remember to use. But otherwise yeah, meh.

You can click here to filter out all this Twitter crap and view my regular posts.

This will hide all posts by any user with specified tags (i.e. "twitter"). This requires Greasemonkey - you can get it for Firefox, and there are Greasemonkey clones or workarounds for Chrome (1 or 2), Opera, and Safari. Internet Explorer is trickier - you can try this or this, but neither have been updated for a while.

Also, Twitter automagically converts all links to their internal/stupid t.co shortener format. This is really annoying. You can get around this with Long URL Please [edit: updated edition!] which works with most browsers.

I didn't... this happened with someone else's Gmail a couple years ago when I still had my "name" (what's now "A fucked to death pile of burning caca.") set with a Unicode character that turned everything upside down, but I removed it at the same time it happened to them. Are you sure it's me and not another person using that same Unicode trick?

yeah. it's been doing it forever.

OK, does this comment do the same...
Jun. 6th, 2011 01:28 am (UTC)
well yeah, because it's from you. but every notification i get starts with "from lafinjack-ljcomment".

...and does this one?

Sorry, I should have been clearer. For that first comment up there, I completely deleted my "name" field (hit select all and hit backspace and delete a couple times to get rid of any invisible characters) and put an X in there (check the top of the email), and for the second one I did the same and retyped my old name. So I guess we've narrowed it down to something that's not in the name field, but I don't know what other user-generated fields get put into comment emails other than your username (doesn't allow invisible characters) and my "name" (which does allow them, but in this case shouldn't have them).

Can you forward me one of the emails it happens on? jackatlafinjackdotnet
Jun. 6th, 2011 01:44 am (UTC)
sent two. the first is from what you just sent. the second is from someone else. your name doesn't seem to appear in the forward...

Hmm, still not sure what's going on. I use Thunderbird to access Gmail, but even going directly to my Gmail in a web browser I still see both comments you sent me normally. I have all comments I make emailed to me, and even those emails display fine.

I guess your next step would be to go to LJ support, and show them this thread. It has to be something on their end that got stuck in i and mine's profiles somewhere.
