Return of the crush meme [Aug. 8th, 2004|10:40 am]

This one is fun because it only tells you who the crushes are if they are mutual, so no weirded-out stalkery sense. Have fun:


LJMeme.com Crush Meme

Number of crushes on me so far: 4

Hasn't this meme gone around once before -- but last time it saved everyone's answers and then offered to sell people reports of who had a crush on them?

Oh, yeah, I remember that one. I don't think it's precisely the same, and you are allowed to delete crushes, and names don't show that aren't mutual....

I've checked their Terms of Service, and it does include the clause that they are allowed to use any information you submit however they want.

Myself, I don't really care, because if someone wants to know if I'm attracted to them all they have to do is ask me. Still, it's something to be careful of -- the previous meme did the "gather info then sell info" trick twice, and this may be a variant, or the same people just changing their look-and-feel to put people at ease.

Yikes! The delete function doesn't work. I entered a name intending to delete it and now can't. So be aware...

Nope, I was wrong. It was just hanging up. It will delete. My dumb.

I don't think anybody who had a crush on me would actually use a Crush Meme.

I tried it with poeticangelx and got nothing. Just so you know I changed journals.. I know you had that one friended, in case you want to change it. All I've done is ramble about what it's like to find out your bf cheated on you, and quantum theory, but you can check it out if you want.

I got a good chuckle out of their Terms:

I'd actually stopped reading after the first sentence, because it confirmed what I'd thought ... but seeing the whole paragraph, absolutely, this is the same jerk as last time. Almost the same wording, even.

that line/para is the one that made me decide to not sign up to do the quizling.
Goddess knows I've got enough crap to do on LJ that I needn't do every meme that comes along.

not to mention I don't need someone to know my passwords who advertises that they sell information...

Which is why I made up a completely different password.

How does this work?

I put in my email address, created a new password, they sent me an email to validate and then . . .nothing.

I'm confused

After they send you the email, you need to go back in and click on the "LJ Meme" link on the left. That will take you to the regular sign-in page.

Not a brilliant design....

After I sign in, it takes a few seconds and goes to . . .the sign in page. It's a loopy loop.

Are you capitalizing anything in your password? Because I capitalized mmy password and it did the same thing, but when I typed it without capitalization it went through....

You generally get them after pointing the meme out to others in your journal...
