1) When posting on someone's LJ, doublecheck that you're logged in first and not about to post anonymously! Everyone's been making this mistake lately. It makes it hard because then I have to run around unscreening things.

2) If you're stuck on Mac OS 9, iCab appears to do everything necessary to make the site work. At least the equivalent version for OS X does, and I believe they're feature-equivalent.

3) IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, INVOLVE A COW

actually lj has been logging us out without us knowing or choosing the last few days. i barely noticed before it was too late a time or two! the key is when you can't choose your picture. that just won't fly. ;)

Right, exactly. I just meant that when you're posting a comment you can see you're not logged in and you're about to post as "anonymous". :)

If you want a cow, I'd suggest getting cowsay. It's one of my favorite programs. And I think they have it for macs now.

I think they've fix the security issue by replacing it with so many bugs that the malicious users don't want to bother with the exploit any more. It's the Microsoft Security Model.
