Of those of you who're doing the LJ-crush meme, how many of you have read the small print?
I didn't read it, which may have been slightly foolish of me. That said, I'm not really terribly concerned about the information remaining private.
Didn't this sort of thing get discussed to death when the last secret crush meme started selling the information?
I did, and used an email address that gets spammed anyway and didn't put down anyone that I'd be upset by them finding out. It made me laugh actually.. 'an object lesson in the importance of reading small print' (or words to that effect)..
One disturbing thing to note is that anyone can sign up your user (and therefore discover who has a crush on you etc) without your knowledge or consent. The password it asks for is just for it's own site, not to LJ..
Even having read the Comments of the Paranoid I can't conceive of any way in which this could inconvenience me (though yes, I did read the TOS before signing up, mostly out of curiosity).
That's just me, though. I'm not telling it anything everyone doesn't know, just learning things *I* didn't. :)
