In light of the recent changes in the LiveJournal Terms of Service, and the manner in which they were implemented, I'm moving to Dreamwidth. For now I will continue to cross-post, but I intend to turn off comments on the LiveJournal copy. I've already changed most of the existing posts on LJ to friends-only. I will probably intermittently friends-lock the LJ mirror of posts going forward, not least because I see no reason why I should provide content now LJ shows advertising on my posts to readers who arent logged in even though I have a paid account.

I have a paid LJ account with a year of credit and I don't intend to delete it entirely for some months, in part because it allows me to do maintenance work on communities and RSS feeds for myself and others. (For example, I was the last mod standing for the LiveJournal copy of Bearing Witness, so I've done the necessary working on transferring it to Dreamwidth and shutting down the LJ mirror.) You should, however, assume that this LiveJournal account may not be here for much longer. If you're staying on LiveJournal only, or using it as your primary feed, please follow the RSS feed for my Dreamwidth account.

Lots of my friends have moved, but I haven't tracked down everyone on Dreamwidth yet - please comment if you want to let me know where/who you are, including if you're staying on LJ so I can make sure I have your feed on my DW following page.

I'm not leaving LJ for the foreseeable future and will not be moving to DW if/when I do, so I'll follow you via the RSS feed.

yr hmbl srppnt. paid some just-barely-affordable figure for a life membership, just a little before the lj sell-off to the "new" russian owners, so'll be keeping the account indefinitely.

i find it hard to fault them for obeying the local legal requirements in tsar vlad-the-impal^W-^Wimir poutine's new imperial russia; but yes, the manner of the announcement did not give any indication they had any reservations regarding an unfair and unjust discriminatory law/set of laws and their very heavy-handed imposition in their country.

- maybe they'll move lj back to the marmalade-tribble-topped first-merkin-mafia-family-head-and-robber-baron-for-life-in-chief's merkia for the freedoms they used to enjoy there?

- or maybe not;

- how about our dearly-beloathed, self-proclaimédly "caring, sharing" deranged dalek of a prime monster and would-be empress or dictator's "festung britannia"?

- nope, can hardly recommend here. . .

- i know! - move to finland! - the country and people most ideally suited to a society where all relationships are conducted by mobile phone, email and social websites, "because we finns prefer to not meet the people we socialise with face-to-face". . .đŸ˜”

I'm planning to move to Dreamwidth, but various technology and household issues keep creating delays.
