So, I got my first Russian friend today.

I read through th English parts of the journal and realized it was a spam letter.

So I ban_set his/her ass in the control panel.

Now I know how Reagan felt in the 80's.

I have had at least five of these new Russian friends...and I simply ban them. Its annoying. As if I would accept every friend request anyway. ::sniff sniff::

LOL I do have one girl on my f-list who does post in Polish or Czech, but she at least makes cohesive and interesting English posts on occasion.

I have a few Russian lj friend, but they for the most part post in English. So far I haven't received a spam letter from any of them (yet)

Lj-Abuse will suspend them if you report them.
Banning them from your journal doesn't stop them reposting your friends only entries.

Please pass this on to your friends who have noticed them too.
