where did you get this picture?
I took this picture, it's me & i know for sure that you do NOT have permission to post it & frankly I have no clue how you got it.
It's a spam trick. The Russian text says "Hello, chosen! If that's your avatar, click here!" Clicking there makes you add this person's account to your LJ friends. I don't know exactly what THAT's meant to accomplish, but yeah.
OH. so basically right now,
everyone right here sees their OWN icon in there.
Wow, that's the weirdest thing ever!
i never thought this was every possible!
Weirder still (well, for someone who doesn't speak Russian, anyway!)
I left a comment at the bottom of the page—where, if you click the link just two comments above it... from what I can gather, it appears to be a post from 2007 where the guy tested out the program.
Please glance at my comment if you get a moment: I really am curious about what I asked (spam/an elaborate practical joke/a means of gathering IP addresses...etc)
Why do you say you took it, when you know you didn't? What makes you say that? I could post a million pics of this dog, as I'm its owner for 7 years now. Git.
I'm sorry, ohtoolittle, I didn't know that it would display another icon for everyone, I thought it would only be my pic to be seen.
THATS MY BLOODY ICON WTF I MADE IT

This is MY dog!!!
I mean seriously! MY dog in MY living room!
GEEZ, I hate the internet.
Really, I don't know where yougot this pic from?
Did I upload it anywhere? I can't recall. I checked my flickr-site but it's not there, so I'm just curious.
And then I would rather like you not to use it, as it is a personal picture.
Okay, if it's that personal I shouldn't have uploaded it I guess. It's just ... this is the first time this has happened to me. I mean, I'm just checking my f-list and see my dog, you know! That's just odd! And I don't even understand one word Russian. Which makes it rather more strange, so ... I'm not angry or something I just would like to know where you got it from.

Actually, This *Is* A Bit Humorous...As The CURRENT Picture
is a batik that was made as an homage to the photographer Dirk Mai (and this shot of me, obviously).
I read aethyrkitten
's explanation, but this guy's a clever bugger: I rarely use LiveJournal; hence, I let an "upgraded" account expire. (Gift/blanks, filled)
What's curious is that the current avatar isn't one of my six photo options. I assume I must have used it at some point—obviously, over a year ago when I was allowed a gazillion uploads.
In other words, the technology he's utilized is able to pull from an individual's former
Where those are stored, or why he'd want to be on my friends' list? Kind of fascinating. I mean, it's not as if LJ is comparable to MySpace in its nascent days—you know, back in 2004 when a person's "friend count" is what "made" the ForbiddeN, Jeffree Star and Tila Tequilas of the world.
But what do I know?
The spam trick he pulled is beyond my comprehension—let alone the intent.
