Dear LJ,

What the crap? Violating other sites' TOS pales in comparison to the fact that by stripping users' affiliate links and replacing them with third-party links you are stealing from your own users. Many of whom, you know, pay you already, and whom I daresay need the money way more than you do, since you've just proven that you have the morals of scum. Again.

Via [personal profile] inkstone, [personal profile] cyprinella has the fix here, but note that it only applies to when you're logged in to the site. [personal profile] vector has more info here, as does [personal profile] telophase here on why implementing the fix is a good thing to do regardless of whether you use affiliate links.

ETA: Supposedly it was an error dropped into the code that will be rolled back with the next code push. Gee, that sounds familiar. (Is the code guarded by a drunken monkey? WTF, I found that excuse hugely suspect the first time.)

Also, I now have 10 more invite codes; let me know if you'd like one. I'll release them into the wild in a few days.

I'll be visiting UC-Berkeley one month from tomorrow, April 2, and will be in San Francisco on April 3 and the morning of April 4. People who read this who live in or near San Francisco, rec me bookstores (I know about City Lights; any others?), things to see/do, places to eat? And if anyone would like to meet up with me, that would be great too.
