I'm kinda old-fashioned, in the sense I don't use mobile stuff for my online activities. I like having a large screen and a keyboard...

...an actual keyboard. Not a touchscreen with a simulated one. One with actual keys too, not like those flat things you find on most laptops!

Anyway, due to some nitwit that's been staking me on twitter and linking to some of my content, said nitwit uses an iPad, I found a flaw in a significant difference between normal LJ and the mobile version.

I wrote the LJ·Gods about it:
Somebody pointed this out to me on twitter recently and I wanted to see if you were aware of it. I've got a community here called House_of_Skin, which is pretty much what it sounds like; a community for the posting of naked peoples. I've done what I can to make sure little kids that are on LJ can't see it, cuz you know there are some here and there, by making it so all posts there are automatically placed under "Explicit Adult Content"...

...though it'd be great if I could figure out how to make all posts, both the old and new ones, members only locked.

If you're not logged into livejournal, or are but you birthday isn't setup in your profile, you get the age restriction warning when going to the following link:

However, same conditions, if you check it at the mobile link...
...all of the posts are completely visible to anybody.

Why doesn't mobile twitter have the age restriction filters?

Haven't heard back from them yet. Hopefully they'll be able to fix it.
