I just did a small test on the reposting comments to facebook thing. (with full permission of the person who's lj I was commenting to btw)

So basically, what you get is your comment, with a link to the post you're commenting to.

At most I could see this as useful if you're trying to rec someone's fic or post, which I generally wouldn't do on facebook to begin with. Not because I hide any connection between my facebook and my livejournal, cause I don't. But because the people I've got on facebook aren't really interested in fanfic. (and believe me, I've tried to get my mom or brothers and sister to read mine*g*)

Aside of that I don't get why people are so against the ticky box, I tend to be of the opinion that it might be a bit useless, but other than that, all you have to do not to use it, is not to tick it on.

I will tell you though that if you do click it on, you don't get a delay to stop it from posting, not even a reminder of 'this comment was crossposted to facebook' or anything like that.

So take that as you want.

PS: no worries, I'd never crosspost any comments I make to a locked post or to a fandom post to begin with. If I wanted to link to a post, for something like gay marriage or stuff that needs to get spread, I'll ask permission first. That ok?

Is it weird that I'm getting slightly annoyed at all the panicking about this feature?

I don't think so!

Thanks for experimenting :) Useful information to know.

Panic, no. Anger, that I understand. The reason why people are getting upset is that all you have to do is not use it. Yet anyone who reads your LJ can tick it off and both the comment and the link to YOUR entry would appear on THEIR Facebook. There is no reason for this to happen.

I think the issue is that if I friendslock a post, I expect only the people I have friended to be able to read it. Trusted people. But as I understand it, if one of the people on my flist were to tick the box, everyone on their facebook (potentially many hundred people I don't know) would then see my "locked" post (or at least a bit of it). That takes away my control over what I have written, and nullifies the point of flocking the post. You can't even get a notification to refuse!

It's just not acceptable.
