Hi all. Just discovered this group while looking for an appropriate place to post my question (looks like I recognize several of your usernames though :-)).

I was interested in reading the second review here: http://www.librarything.com/work/217113/reviews I understand that linking to an outside review is fine. The URL there, however, redirects me to http://www.livejournal.com/?returnto=http%3A%2F%2Fdonutgirl.livejournal.com%2F20..., which has no review in site, and the URL made me think that perhaps it's there but behind a log-in. My question probably also applies to reviews that are links behind paywalls or have gone 404.

Should I blue-flag such reviews as non-reviews? I think in this case the user is still active so I can shoot them a note and ask for a different URL, or to copy and paste. So maybe wait and see instead? Would a blue flag done now go away if they change it?

Thanks!

I accessed her livejournal (http://donutgirl.livejournal.com/), and it seems she converted it to "friends only". As a result, her reviews can be seen only by her "friends" on LJ.

It might be worth dropping her a comment asking her to copy/paste. She doesn't seem to have a lot of reviews that are just links to her LiveJournal, so it shouldn't be too onerous for her to do that.
