Latest LJ foolishness

I don't know how many of you, like me, were greeted when logging into LJ today with an irritating banner across the bottom of the browser window calling itself "LJTimes" and flashing much useful information, all in Russian. If you want to get rid of it, just go here and make sure that the last box ("Cyrillic Services" - "Opt me into services originally developed for the Cyrillic users") is unchecked.

In soviet Russia, LJ read YOU!!!

Note also that this has some effect on your ability to quote locked posts to TwitFace. Not that you'd want to, but still.

However IIRC the opting-in to Cyrillic Services was to remedy/avoid a different bit of idiocy. What reappears when you untick the box?

You need to opt in to get the custom userheads.

There's also a Greasemonkey script to hide just the bar:

Nope, that's definitely not why I opted in (I don't use those). I just can't remember why it was. It might have been one of the awful home page/profile page redesigns?
