Now most everyone I know does have at least a shell LJ account. Meanwhile, one of those people who can use the phrase "fascist liberal" and still somehow apparently think themselves intelligent decided to correct my "fascist liberal" thinking anonymously**. I have therefore changed my comment access defaults to require LJ IDs. If you know me personally and this poses a problem, please let me know.
** He (I'm guessing it's a he) created a user and has persisted under a username, I'll give him that. A "plus" (ad-supported free) user with no identifying information, granted, but a user.
