Thank you!

Found this via a Google search for 'loudtwitter security'. Thanks for pointing me toward the Livejournal e-mail posting feature. Much better password hygiene.

What's the purpose of the <lj-raw> tag in the header of the e-mail message? Doesn't LoudTwitter already format its messages?

(Sorry about the editing. LJ was stripping out the tag.)

lj-raw is because there is HTML markup in the post that LoudTwitter makes. lj-raw turns off LiveJournal's automatic formatting so that you don't end up with extra line breaks wherever there's a newline.

Here is a list without lj-raw (notice LJ inserts extra new lines adding a ton of extra whitespace:

  • this is a cooked list

  • this is a cooked list


Here is a list with lj-raw:
  • this is a raw list
  • this is a raw list
