PocketLJ is not being cool.

This is so NOT COOL. It seems that since I've installed pocketlj, pretty much anyone using it can post as me. See this thread as an example of a thread which was started by someone posing as me.

As a software developer, I know mistakes and bugs happen. But this is a pretty nasty security hole. Especially since the documentation went to lengths to assure me that something like this could not happen. I hope they fix it soon. In the mean time, I may have to disable my LJ to prevent "LJ identity theft."

Edit: It appears to be fixed now. See the discussion in pocketlj for the blow-by-blow commentary.
