> And that would be a good promotion of plugins like FacebookBlocker, too. Are there things like that for google+ and twitter ?

I am well aware of the concern with privacy that LWN readers share ;-) as well as the sensitivity to anything created in the internet less than 20 years ago that many here seem to also have. `The internet was fine as it was in 1992, IMNSHO, why couldn't it just stay like it was` :-P

I had assumed that all 'social / share' links would only be part of page that "Post a Link" takes you to, or that there would be a toggle for it in the account settings. Something along these lines.
