What so many others have said: Bad rollout and badly breaking the 'least surprise' theory of UI design with this new release with a crap-ton of social-site cross-linking options being added.

It's all blocked at the style-code layer for my own journal now using CSS abuse for now mostly because it's finally reaching the tipping point that makes the site obnoxious to use via my BlackBerry and noisy/cluttered on even my 1920x1200 screen browser at the small font size I use.

Ok, I'm missing something here. What did they do?

Made all the comment-reply boxes and journal-posting boxes and login-boxes have 'Facebook Connect' and 'Twitter Auth' options attached taking up more space, with them all allowing cross-posting to these other services.

Basically, it means that someone logged in via twitter/facebook to their LJ account could see your friends-locked post, and reply causing their reply to your post (and part of your post) to be reposted to these outside sites.

Ok, I got it now. So if someone clicks that in a reply friends lock can be defeated. Not cool.
