The real cincher was the fact that one of the posts I got spammed from was horrible. Like, I was really embarrassed that this was public. I thought I kept a good lock on what I noted at what security levels, but I guess that wasn't the case.
I guess when we get older we assume that we were always a certain level of mature, when history and reality dictate otherwise.
I didn't want to delete my journal, as I felt that I'd be robbing myself of a part of my past to remove this, but I also didn't want to keep it out there. So friends only it is.
