Not sure what happened but my LJ got hacked or sth? If you see/saw dozens of Russian posts, sorry about that. I deleted them all except for one because I wasn't sure if LJ needs it to check what happened. I filed a help request, so let's hope they can tell me what happened because strangely, all of the posts were dated 10th March 2016, and as I'm writing this, that date is tomorrow. Another thing is that none of these spam posts were listed under "Recent entries" or "Scheduled entries" in my own dashboard o_O;

Sorry again for the spam, and thanks to [ profile] jukebox_csi for sending me a msg about it.

It's weird that they didn't show up as recent entries on your dashboard :( I hope LJ figures it out.

LJ support is a joke because it's community-based, so other users answer questions.
Anyway, they told me my password may be too easy (it's not at all), or I use it on a different website (I don't), or it's spyware/malware (it's not, I checked). No help at all.

I changed my password and deleted every foreign entry now. I feel like LJ has served its purpose and perhaps I should move on to a different platform =/ Tumblr comes to mind but I dunno. I can live without having to write a blog. The only downside is probably my original slash fiction recs list.
