Oh, LJ why??  
 I have a permanent account here.  Not going anywhere, anytime soon.  

But things like this annoy me.  (Thanks tinylegacies for detailing what this linking thing is all about.)  Basically, LJ is taking you through a third party whenever you click on a link to certain sites, or when you link to, say, amazon, and other people click on that.  In a really sneaky way.  There's some financial gain they're getting from it, but thanks but no thanks, I didn't sign up to be google ads on my journal.

You can opt out by following the directions here.

How disappointing! Especially seeing as how much money I spend on paid accounts between this one and my RP accounts, I'm not really impressed.

Thanks for the link, though, and I'm disabling it on my accounts. Going to cross-post it, too.
