Apparently, linking to your FB profile will put your full name on your LJ Userinfo page.

Which as we all know, is Googleable.

And even if you link within a locked entry, it will send the person linked part of your post in the notification email.

Plus, shared comments will include the subject line. One example of why this is dangerous is if you had a locked entry, and your friend Helga posts "Oh my God, dump Javier, I'll call the lawyer for you", and links the comment to her FB, while Javier is watching Helga's FB to make sure that you're staying in line... Yeah.

This isn't just fearmongering and what-if. This has been playtested. Extensively.
