What I've been noticing more and more, though, are journals where the owner posts (or shows in their userinfo) about how their journal is strictly friends-only... but then proceeds to post polls multiple times a week, open to the public.
All I can say is that I hope they're trying to keep their journal hidden behind a protective layer of crap, because it sure as hell doesn't make them appealing to look at. I wish they were full friends-only, they'd be a lot more pleasant for the public, and wouldn't involve harming any children and/or small forest creatures.
What's next, an LJ style with banner and pop up ads? C'mon. Your journal is insipid enough without posting nothing but the polls.
