Good things: the ability to include/exclude posts from my flist based on tag. Oh you're gonna get used, feature.

Bad things: IP ADDRESS TO LOCATION CONVERSION AND DISPLAY. IP address display is one thing--not something everyone's comfy with, but not exactly conducive to, say, stalking people in your area, because it's pretty difficult to match up a string of numbers with an area at a glance. Much easier to do, though, when LJ makes it to where it not only displays the address automatically but the CITY and COUNTRY right there alongside it.

I never pay attention to LJ news, but what the heck?! I'm not okay with this!

I suppose I'm glad that most of the people on my flist know where I live already, but do we really need exact location? I turned that function off for my twitter and facebook already.

It seems like it COULD be a novel idea--like the little profile code you can put in that detects where people visit your LJ from and shows little flags like "You've had 10 visitors from Germany" or something.

But this is way more invasive and I could easily see it being abused :/

Why, in plain sight of course! What do you mean you don't follow the obscure [livejournal.com profile] lj_releases??

:( It has quite a few people voicing some anger...
