Posting comments from outside LJ? [Oct. 26th, 2004|08:30 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


Hi everyone!

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, so please forgive me for the hassle :)
My name is Math, I've been an LJ user for the last two years, and I have a little problem.

Let me explain.

In the firm where I work, the admins have decided to block access to LJ altogether, which pisses me off to no end.
Using the Protocol docs, I managed to hack a simple PHP script allowing me to post entries, but I still miss one of the major aspects of the LJ experience : posting and replying to comments.

So, my question: would there be any way to do so from outside LJ?
Of course, that would require copy/pasting hidden attributes from the real LJ form, but that's not a problem.
Basically, is there a way to send data to www.livejournal.com in a way similar to using the postevent Flat Protocol mode to post comments?

Thanks in advance!

... except that not.
This doesn't allow posting new comments, does it?

I'm not normally paranoid, but somehow I don't like the idea of routing all of my LJ posts and comments (and my password*) via a site run by some random person I don't know. That, to me, requires a degree of trust that's totally unwarranted in this day and age.

* OK, only the hash of your password, but that's basically equivalent since anyone with it can use the LJ protocol to do nearly anything as you.
