fearless: WTF (WTF?)
Okay, so this is odd but I have just discovered that my filters aren't working.  I just logged out of my DW to see what others saw upon looking at my journal and my entry for my contact information which I filtered under "Contact Information" can be seen.

I am not sure why this is happening, but it is definitely something that is worrisome for me.  Any thoughts as to what could be causing this?

EDIT:  It appears to be working now.  Maybe, I just haven't had enough coffee this morning.  /chugs  =^.^=

fearless: Working (Working)
After a lot of thought, I have decided to make my journal semi-public, though if I sense that there are problems with that, I will immediately revert back to friends only. What this means is I will grant access to my journal to almost everyone, as long as we share common interests or there is something I feel I can learn from you as an individual. In this case, I felt it was only appropriate to describe the types of filters I have and whether they are opt-in or opt-out. If you're unsure as to what those terms may mean, I have described them below.
  • Opt-In: These are filters were you will have to request to be added if you aren't already on these types of filters. I will be very selective of the people that I add to these types of filters as this is generally were a large majority of my more personal posts will be found.
  • Opt-Out: These are filters were every person I have chosen to grant access to will be placed. For the most part these will contain a lot of my generalized posts which includes but is not limited to fandoms. If you do not want to be on a filter associated with this term then you must request to be taken off.
Now that I have described the differences between opting-in and opting-out of filters, below are the current filters I have. These lists will grow continuously as I begin to write on more subjects, people, places, things, etc.

Opt-Out Filters
Below you will find all filters that you may choose to opt-out of. Again, this list will grow so it is up to you as as subscriber to pay attention and to request you be removed if you do not want to read on particular posts.

  • General
  • General Rants
  • Fandoms
  • Electronics
  • Plugs
  • Photography
  • Dreamwidth modifications, etc
Opt-In Filters
Below you will find all the filters that you may choose to opt-in to, if you have not already been added to those filters. Keep in mind that these are the majority of my personal posts, so if I know you in real life, do not really know you as an online contact, or don't trust you, you will not be considered for any of the filters below, depending on the filter.
  • Contact Info
  • Relationships
  • Sexuality
  • Marriage
  • Insecurities
  • Infedility
  • IRL Rants
  • Drunken Escapades
  • Work
If you have any questions, regarding my filters or my filtering policy, please do not hesitate to ask.  I will do my best to explain my filter policy as to not personally offend anyone.
