Some idea about avoiding the autoposts

Let's imagine we have 2 kind of cookies:

1-st cookie just authenticates us - it is used for viewing friends posts (probably locked).

Second cookie is generated when some updates required - post new entry, or edit friends, or whatever else which affects user's data or journal. After the update completed this cookie is expired/deleted.

This way it will be possible to prohibit the autoposting, because there will be no valid cookie to perform insert/update actions, just cookie which authenticates user itself.

reply subjects

Hello. I'm not a developer, just your everyday user. I hope this is the right forum for this issue. If not, I apologize and request that you direct me to a more appropriate place.

Is there a reason that LJ now appends a "Re:" to all reply subject lines, no matter how you specifically word it? I don't really like it. It's kind of annoying. I like to have control over what I post, and sometimes I deliberately change the subject line and intentionally remove the "Re:". It's rather vexing, then, to discover that it's there anyway.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
