At a loss here, but - fannish sadness and a PSA


I wasn't sure what to believe when this comment about tenebraeli was left on my most recent public post; the person it's about and the person who left it have had issues in the past that made me wonder if it wasn't a rather sick prank, especially since there was a mostly positive entry in Olwen's journal for the date in question. I still have some questions about the phrasing and details in the comment, because that's not how the situation between them rested as I understood it from Olwen herself.

I would've been much more pleased to discover that it was a prank, though, than to find an obituary in the Monterey Herald, but sadly, there is one. Unless that isn't genuine, Olwen has passed away. No details were given beyond what you can read in the links there, and I have none.

The PSA part is this: if the comment about Olwen's computer is accurate, and assuming it does offer access to her LJ either because the password is stored on it or because she left it logged in, those who have her friended and/or on sensitive filters might want to change that, if you don't want people who are not Olwen to have access to your locked posts.

ETA: Some additional information from brangwy, which seems to confirm what I'm sure a lot of us were thinking.

ETA2: Also, there's a guestbook on the obituary, for those who wish to leave personal messages.

Hi. You don't know me, but for some reason, I'm getting what appears to be spam email for you, which doesn't make sense to me. I would've emailed you, except that I'm a little unsure that the email would've gotten to you, if that makes any sense. The emails I've received have been adressed to "mpoetess@livejournal.com", so why I'm getting them is beyond me. And it's entirely probable that you don't want these spams (and who could blame you? :) ) or maybe they're not spams. *shrug* But I just wanted to let you know, in case other mail starts getting forwarded to me. I wouldn't have written, but it's happened a few times now, enough that I remembered seeing your name. Anyway, hope all is well with you. :)

You're getting spam from an autogenerated spambot that's scraped up my @livejournal.com address from someone's post somewhere that doesn't have it separated out with __underscores__, and is using that as its main "To" target, with all of the other spammed people in a cc or bcc line. It's just trash; feel free to delete it.
