Testing out Frank bot  
Every LJ account comes with a (XMPP) chat account, which I just added to Pidgin to see if anyone else uses it. It appears nobody does BUT you're automatically made friends with Frank the goat, who appears to be an XMPP bot that makes posts to your LJ on your behalf. This is a totally useless feature.

Edit: I sucked in crassy, aww yeah. Get on the LJ Talk bandwagon!

Hm evidently he makes your posts public. I don't think I'm going to use this anymore :P

Also, ya, you've sucked me in but now you aren't talking to me! (Not that you have to, I am doing stuff anyway).

hmmm we use xmpp+pidgin at work, that means this is not new and therefore not scary, i should do this.....

It's pretty straightforward in Pidgin. You go to Add Account, pick XMPP as the type, fill in rainisnice as your username, livejournal.com as your domain, anything you like as your resource (or leave it blank) and type in your password and you're done.
