Am I Here?

Well, after the news about LiveJournal, I guess that I am kissing goodbye to my permanent LJ account. When I went to LJ, it would not allow me to log in unless I agreed to the new TOS, which includes language of adherence to codes of the Russian Federation. Further, there was a statement that the English translation of the TOS was not valid, but in agreeing, I would be accepting the TOS in the original language (with a link to Russian version). Since I have no idea what they are talking about, I declined to agree. So essentially, I'm out.

I originally joined DW, migrated, and linked the two accounts years ago when LJ was purchased by Russians. Many of us did, because we had no idea what was going to happen. All of our fears seemed unsubstantiated, until yesterday.

I was not making great use of LJ anyway, but it was nice to know it was there. I met so many of my good friends there, and met my husband there. So I'm sad to see it go.

I did unlink my LJ and DW accounts, otherwise whatever I post here would post there, also. If you haven't done that, you might think about it.

Yeah, as I mentioned, now I'll have one fewer moribund blogs ;-)

Although perhaps between this, and Mastodon, a rebirth of personal content will happen. I'm not holding my breath, but it's a possibility if we want it.
