More on why to avoid Frienditto

Ironically I find this in this entry at Frienditto.

I copied it here since who knows if they'll delete it for being negative about them.

Site owned & run by the same person.. The fact that a lot of the LJ users mentioned are people who've had their journals suspended or people like hep who I know to have been involved in LJ Drama makes me semi-suspicious. The Abuse team don't suspend without good reason. Ooh, and have a look at - do you think someone who allows that kind of stuff to be published on a website she runs is likely to have the best interests of LJ users at heart? and seem clear enough evidence to me that the owner is also girlvinyl.

LJ Drama By the looks of it, some people are getting a quick, painful lesson in security online.

Edit: Checking her resume - she claims to be a CISSP, a certification I also held for a while. Now check the CISSP Code of Ethics. IMHO, her behavior, and especially Frienditto, do not mesh well with this - most especially:
Protect society, the commonwealth, and the infrastructure
  • Promote and preserve public trust and confidence in information and systems.
  • Promote the understanding and acceptance of prudent information security measures.
  • Preserve and strengthen the integrity of the public infrastructure.
  • Discourage unsafe practice.

I guess LJ considers someone's name to be 'contact info':

So I edited the post to remove the name and links that contained the name. Not that any bright spark can't figure it out.

Edit 2: And they tell me the post is in compliance now. :-)
