Two posts today!

ETA: http://randomposting.insanejournal.com/ Just in case, guys. I'm not happy about it, this is my journal home, but at least that would be a way to contact me if things go bad. And you can always email me at LJRandomposting@yahoo.com

-- Okay.. seriously?

I'll let you guys know what "identical" comments I make iin others journals.

" I hope tomorrow is a better day for you."
" I hope you're feeling better soon."
"Welcome to LJ! :) "

Some of you will recognize these, because all of you at some point or another added me as a friend.

Apparently Livejournal feels that sending good wishes to people is spam.

What a world.

ETA My Response: I received this email:

After reading your terms of service in the link listed above, it says nothing about commenting on users journals being out of line unless someone is promoting their own community or trying to sell something. I have done neither of these things. I'm happy to tell you the comments that I repeatedly make on journals.

" I hope tomorrow is a better day for you."
"I hope you're feeling better soon."
"Happy Birthday!"

How is commenting with things of this nature in anyway violating your terms of service? I have never once added a journaller that did not add me first. I am spreading cheer to livejournal and have had thousands of users thank me for doing exactly that.

I do not understand why I am receiving threats in my email accusing me of being a spammer, when I have done nothing on this journal but spread a little sunshine to your journallers that are upset. I have talked to journallers who are mourning, I have wished happy birthdays.

This link does not seem to in anyway address anything that I have done on my journal. I would appreciate some clarification on this issue, as I find it offensive that I am being targeted in this way.

Thank you.
