I just looked at some old entries in here, and discovered that my older entries had been duplicated, with the duplicates of locked entries being made public. No idea how that happened, but my solution is to basically lock everything from the start of my journal through last year. Not sure when the duplicate entries started or when, but I've got some stuff there that I'd like the entire world not to see. I can only assume it was some kind of a glitch with the import.

*update* I was able to successfully lock all of the old posts, but I'm still a little vexed that they were hanging out there publicly for all to see. Too late to unring that bell I guess, but oh well. If anyone saw anything that we need to talk about (I'm talking mainly about non DW users I know who might have seen something that I said that they had a problem with) please reach out.

I would contact the DW support. I have not needed to myself but I am told they're very good about responding and they should be able to explain why that happened.

That happened to me a while ago, but it was due to some importing weirdness when I changed permissions on LJ. Could something similar have been the cause for you?

That's disturbing. I don't see that it's happened to me, but I don't have time to check every post I've made in the past 16 years!

Thanks for the heads up! I had noticed that I had duplicated entries and had put it on my "sort it out later" list, but when you posted this, I realized that one set of duplicates (maybe my first import?) was public through 2009! So I used the mass privacy edit tool to make everything access list only, but still have to get the multiple copies thing sorted out. (It looks like there are three of every post, and only one has the comments!)

eep! I have so very many posts I don't know how I'd even notice if DW did this. I only just imported.

how did you go about flocking en masse?
