Seems like the theme of the day is longterm relationships. With some interesting (1) discussions (2) (trurl, unlock your entry!). So for today's update, I attempt to invite anyone who reads my entries and not necessarily my friends to join the fun.

What do you think about marriage? :7

dmv, Destroyer of Privacy? Now that, apparently, livejournal has levels of access, there should be an easy way to tell what privacy mode has been invoked for a given message. Not that I would really use such a thing, but it might be convenient to know "how private"... and perhaps, what set of friends is included.

Not sure of the best mechanism. Maybe a couple of different colored locks, and if you go to the profile page, it will provide a key to which set includes whom (with, perhaps, label?). Of course, it would only show the locks for which the user is a part of. Perhaps that suggestion should be passed on to the Powers That Be. If so inclined, please do so.

Well, sometimes when I'm being more stupid than usual, or want to protect the innocent, I prefer to further restrict the audience.

It might be useful to allow those people in a certain "Friends Group" to know that they are a member, but I am not sure whether it would necessarily a good idea in all cases for them to know who else is a member of the group. I think it would be acceptable to make this an option when the group is created.

On the whole I think there should be more flexibility in what information a user can choose to divulge or not. Right now there is no way to find out what "Friends Group" a person has, even if they don't mind people knowing about certain groups. On the other hand, it would also perhaps be handy some times to have "Friends Group"s that subsets of your "Friends", etc. I know there has been talk of a livejournal only security level.
