LJ Clickthrough Links

Reposted from freakylynx, who snatched it from foxhack, who snatched it from.... you get the idea. :)

Livejournal is adding clickthrough links to your journal.

In short, LJ is using a javascript applet to change links to several vendors into clickthrough links they get referral money from. Even if you're a paid user.

To fix this, go to the second link above, or just type "set opt_exclude_stats 1" into the LJ console, right here.

Now, I understanding LJ needing to make money for hosting, paying employees, and so on, although I do wish that this did not apply to paid or permanent users....

UPDATE: It seems the staff has removed the code, for now at least.
