No, it's not because I think I'm so important that I have to hide all my entries or anything like that. It's simply because there are nosy people around (like my family, for instance) who I don't want reading this. Oh yeah, and also because of some @#$@%@% people out there who'd like to harass me... but let's not go there. Heh.
Just leave me a comment if you add me, and I'll check out your journal and (most likely) add you back! :)
FYI, my journal was hacked on March 5, 2009 by Russian hackers/bots. They deleted ALL of my public entries from the past 8 years, and also 3 months of my friends-only entries. I am slowly starting to rebuild my journal because I have SOME things saved, but a lot of it I don't have saved, so I lost a bunch of stuff. In order to learn more about this and prevent it from happening to you, please check this link out. Thank you.
