I've also posted to here:

You don't seem to have any immediate record of my having done so.

How is this happening?

Sorry I butted in. I have wondered for a long time why some people had a list of people who had added them as friends and I did not. thanks to this thread, now I have.

I have removed and unsubscribed from all my Journal Entries but one.
I open my journal up now and again to check if anyone's been around.smiley - ok
My journal is bolted down a bit tighter than yours and I use it in a different way.
You are on to it though.
There is one entry that is nowhere else on the site except in My Journal and the converstion list of one anonynous researcher who posted once and unsubscribed.
I use it as a note book and I don't particularly want people jumping in to it.

Its surprising who does "subscribe" to one's own space isn't it? I see AB's already taken issue with one of them!

I expect that "Learnin Curve" doesn't appear on Bipedal's space either now that he/she's unsubscribed.

I reckon this thread's gone as far as need be on on the subject of Journals let's extend it a bit.smiley - ok
Your right this business of letting someone subscribe to your messages/articles and a conversation without contributing is a Licence to Lurk. I suppose in some way that facility is more for the benefit of Italics/Moderators than it is for Researchers. As far as I can see there is no easy way of finding out who has subscribed to a conversation without posting and who has subscribed to your space via it's 'A' number or Message box. The Friend list goes part way but even then the extended technique you mention above has to be searched for. What justifiable reason is there for making it easy to subcribe to anything without contributing. You can Lurk without having it laid on a plate for you.

Hi AB. Decided to lurk a bit on you, but found out that I've got something to say. smiley - winkeye

If you (or anyone else using the single page forum style) go to <./>F93527</.> (or click the link called 'Conversation List') you'll see a list of ALL your journals - also those that you've unsubscribed from. As you've already realised, nothing gets deleted, it just gets hidden a bit better. Anyone using frames - like me - will always see the whole list of journals in the left frame.

It's not very good explained in <./>DontPanic-Journal</.>, but it's better than earlier when it wrongly told that the journals could be deleted.
(Did I mention that *I* got it changed? <smug&gtsmiley - winkeye

I have just realised that the facility to remove a post from your journal is not included in Barlesque the new skin.
