Today, I discovered the real place to whore out you LJ-soul: Communities to post a little bio and beg people to add you to their friends list.
new_lj_friends and a_new_lj_friend, to be precise. And a more disturbing cross-section of bad grammar, AOL abbreviations, and "I love to make new friends, add me and I'll add you back - but my entries are Friends-only, so you can't see them unless you add me" I have rarely seen. *twitches*
While I'm linking: This auction is over, but it is disturbing still... "Everything we own is for sale..."
