I hope you can read this. If you can't, obviously you won't know, and neither will I.
A few minutes later: And now an entry from therealljidol showed up on my Friends' List then disappeared from it. Huh. Nothing in LJ Support yet about FL wonkiness. I'll see if this keeps happening.
I hope the last edit: A little later, I saw that LJ Support had gotten a few reports of this problem (I added a note to say "Yep. Mine too."). Soon after that, Hugh's entry appeared, other, newer ones went up and the LJ Idol post reappeared. Here's hoping the issue is past.
