In a day or two, I will be deleting my permanent account at Livejournal. If you are reading this there, I would ask that you contact me via email (deyaniera AT email DOT com), facebook (facebook.com/miintikwa), or Dreamwidth. Because I no longer trust Livejournal to keep my content safe. I have already deleted most of my images that were there, and I've archived and imported all my entries.

It's probably past time to let go of it. I am sad, but I am also resigned.

I hope most of you will come with me to DW or elsewhere.

If not, I wish you well.

Sadly, after 9 years, I deleted my LJ back in January. DW is turning out to be a very nice place to hang out and blog. Like you, I don't feel safe at LJ anymore.

I'd been cross-posting from DW to LJ for years, so before leaving, I backed up all my entries, along with comments.

So, I'm here with you!

I...I do not want ot do that, but may have to. So much lost-friends, too. :(

And LJ used to be our home-our first one. When it was good. I loathe to do that because of this. But man.

Hello! I am the former emerald_ibis on LJ and Wendy K. from Facebook. (It says Casey on my profile here because that is my nom de plume for a fanzine I started writing for last summer.)

After reading the new terms over at LJ, I think a lot of people will be migrating over here. It's a shame because they are slowly killing the place.

Sup Media will.

I had the instinct that once it took over it would be the beginning of the end of freedoms. I feel like Russia things are slowly permiating us-and I don't like it. LJ used to be so good, too. :(

To clarify: I have nothing against Russian individuals; just some of the things the government is doing.

Deleted mine yesterday. Hadn't used it since 2008 and hadn't bothered logging in, in almost a year, so there was really no point.

No worries, though, as our blogging will live on on DW :D

I just now created a DW account. My screen name there is same as here.

I just found you on DW! See you there. Sad day, leaving the LJ.

I think that's just silly. That's the politest way I can put it. Did Russians, or people of any other nationality, refuse to use LiveJournal when it was based in the USA? Of course they didn't.

The USA TOS did not have the discriminatory language in it that the Russian TOS has. I do not want to fall afoul of this new TOS that discriminates against LGBTQ people (which I am), nor do I want to worry about posting a political rant and being accused of "political solicitation," which is defined so broadly my post about my attendance at the Biden rally here in town a few years ago would have been flagged!

It is a scary thing, this new TOS.

I'm planning on creating a DW account. We haven't had a chance to get to know each other here yet, but I hope I can add you there!

Yes! Please do! :)

While I don't use it much, letting go of the tangible investment that is my permanent account is rather difficult, esp when I'll have to pay to use services at DW that I already have here, and the whole transferal process seems daunting, as does setting up semagic to post there. So much for the internet being forever.

Still trying to get back on the consistent posting thing. Hopefully that will start this week. :D
