Odd development: According to one of the thingies on the right, I am consistently being visited by two Russian speakers per day. Mostly new ones each time. They're certainly welcome, but I'm curious what's sent them by. Is it "go to a random LiveJournal" month? Their journals don't indicate they'd be particularly into Westworld or Walking Dead spoilers, which is most of what I ever post here anymore, so I doubt I'm being actually sought out. Anybody else having this happen?

Perhaps this is naïve, but how does one know if one is being visited by Russians?

The visitor feed identifies their names, each of which you can click on, which clicking sends you to a journal written in Russian.

Fascinating! Thanks for clarifying.

Possibly it's something they only foist on iPad users or unpaid accounts? After their last overhaul a number of features appear to the right on my Friends Feed page, including recent friends' birthdays, two different celebrity gossip feed, some other things I don't remember, and a list of recent "guests" - anyone who's directly clicked on your handle to see your journal. Everything now takes much longer to load, relatedly.

I sometimes get notifications that I have replies in Russian but when I check my journal there are no comments. Russian ghosts.

Interesting. I can see LiveJournal maybe blocking Cyrillic comments on Roman journals as an anti-bot tactic?

Last several visitors all have names starting with A, also. Kak stranoye...

I am still old-style style, and none of this ever appears on my page.

You must know so little about the extended Kardashian clan.
