02:25 pm: [sticky post] About the new LiveJournal Terms of Service
Every LiveJournal user will be offered to sign the new User Agreement with SUP Media.


It wasn't so much "offered" as "click on agree or be unable to login". As I'm posting this, no prizes for guessing what I did. (I had noticed the recent change that disabled logging-in with https too, which is something else of concern.)

Given the new TOS means having to comply with Russian laws that are rather unfriendly to LGBT, I am unhappy about this forced change. I am for people being to express who they are and being able to love who they love without being discriminated against.

I've been crossposting from my Dreamwidth account for a few years now, and it's become more & more my home account. If you're on DW, feel free to link me.

ETA: If you could also drop a quick comment to identify yourself, it would be appreciated.

At this time, I don't know if this will be my last LJ post, or whether I'll keep crossposting to both DW & LJ. For now, I will continue reading & commenting on my friendslist posts at both locations.

I subscribed to you over there now too, where I've been for a long time already, just the same as here:

I'm not on DW. I'm not thrilled with the new ToS, but not horrified. Especially as my public posts are all about food and cooking. As the community grows smaller and smaller, I'm not sure there's much point to private posts here. And I don't trust any more to make private posts here, any way.

The one thing that does bother me is that when I bought a paid permanent account, that purchase removed ads both for me throughout LJ and for people reading my LJ blog. Now, if I check my blog from a non-signed-in account, I see an ad banner.... and when I check the account shop, I see that the paid account no longer removes ads for readers. That's the main reason that I'm considering moving my blog. But not sure where I'd go. So, perhaps a decision to postpone.

I rarely lock my posts so that's not as big a deal for me. I guess it just got to a point where I couldn't let it go anymore.
