On the one hand, it is no different than someone cutting and pasting the contents of someone else's protected post onto a public forum, thus breaking that person's trust. On the other hand, it makes it that much easier for the person to do it. And there is also the fact that some people deliberately keep their LJ anonymous and entirely separate from their Facebook/Twitter identities. If someone knows them in both places, shares mutual acquaintances, and cross-posts, all hell could break loose in that person's professional or personal lives.

Then there's just embarrassment. If you posted in a protected post that you are recovering from (just as an example) a herpes outbreak, and someone who knew you in both places had their, "I am SO sorry about your recent herpes outbreak!" comment cross-posted to their Facebook page, I don't think you'd be all that happy that mutual acquaintances might be able to trace that comment back to your LJ and figure out who you are.
