You haven't given the option I need, which is "I sometimes try to use them for posts in communities I'm interested in, but I can't get the blighters to work so I don't know why I bother".

My preferred answer would have been `I haven't used them'. It's not a principle that I don't use them, there's just been nothing I've wanted to track, and anyway, I'd need to get back into the habit of checking the email account where LJ comments notifications go.

Ditto. I may use them in the future but haven't run across anything that I can be bothered to track yet.

My LJ style doesn't currently show them, because I haven't yet got round to modifying it so that it does. I might perfectly well use them if I did.

wah I can't stalk the poll to find out who gave what answers :-(

This reminds me of bash.org quote 115:
<BlackDeth> i like stalked this girl sorta :D
<BlackDeth> like once she asked me for a ride home from work
<BlackDeth> and i took her home... i dropped her off at her house
<BlackDeth> and shes like... wait a minute..how did you know where i lived?

I tried them, but I couldn't see a way to make them send plain-text e-mails so I stopped.

They've fixed that now I think. I'm pretty sure my last couple of notifications have been plain text.

I don't use them because I'm still a bit confused about what they are and what they do.

A wonderful necessary idea, but I haven't investigated exact details yet. I will pin whenever relevent posts appear, but haven't yet.

And I don't hate anyone, but will stalk people I hate, while it's still dawning on me.

Are those the little drawing pin icons you get next to comments now?

Heheh, I hadn't actually realised what they were for. You can use them to follow a thread in someone else's LJ? That's cool. I remember about 2 years ago, senji was saying he wished there was a way to subscribe to the comments on a particular LJ entry made by another person.

I suspect if that is what they are, the main use I'll find for them is to keep track of fandom drama!! Wheeee!

I think the concerning bit is that you can use them to track every post made by a person.

If someone makes a post that they intend to be private but they accidentally make it public and the correct that error 30 seconds later there is a window when there is a reasonable chance someone will have read the post. One could make this even worse (or better depending on whether you like stalking) by getting the notifications to go to a bot that saved the lj posts it received the url of by email.

by "people I fancy" I mean I get a message when My boyfriend updates.
I also pinned Rob so I get messaged when he makes a post tagged nina321.
It worries me when that boy talks about me :p

I don't use them often, but they are really useful when I want to follow a discussion on an LJ I don't have friended - like the ones linked on metafandom

The notification when someone friends you is pretty handy as well.

Yeah, I turned off the userpic notifications (I'd not even got them sending mail) when I went and looked at my inbox and it had about 15 pages of new icons.

I do still have it mailing me when someone friends me.

And for a short while I was watching for any new entries in rmc28 because we were all waiting for news, I've turned that back off now. I might watch the comments of this post since it'll soon fall off the front page of my friends list and it's moderately interesting.

I like that you can choose whether you want an email or just it to be noted in the message centre. And it seems SMS notifications are coming soon as an option too. I don't think there's anything so important I'm likely to use it for that.

Oh, and I'd not say I was proud that I use them, but I'm not ashamed of it. Then again I'm not trying to stalk anyone with them.
