Confused about the new LJ TOS. I had to agree to it, but it says it does not apply to people with paid/permanent accounts, and I don't understand how that works.

There are a few people posting under f-lock on LJ whom I still want to follow, so I'm not planning to delete my account yet. But I don't think I'm going to be mirroring my DW posts here any more. I might post links to them if anyone is still following my increasingly neglected LJ account and would find that useful. (If so please comment.)

My DW account is also firecat.

I just don't understand this freaking out and "Putin drama" every time LJ updates anything. At all. It always looks like a complete overreaction to me And it does this time. Unless one is a leader of Russian opposition, it is a complete non-issue I think. And if one is then LJ is the least of one's problems.

I didn't mock anyone, I just shared my opinion about this. This is not an occasion that requires a solemn tone either.

i found it kind of confusing... i wish i knew why they were still processing payments through a US corporation? and this seemed like a really sudden announcement-- rather than giving us a heads up to at least be aware of potential new changes and export our info if we want to opt out of the new TOS.

i don't object to using sites based outside the US... in some cases i prefer it. i do object to a lack of transparency, though. :(

I would be very interested in figuring out how best to stay connected with you on the internet, as you're one of the people with whom I would most hate to lose regular touch, internets or otherwise! I will most likely stay here with LiveJournal, because I'm irrationally attached to my beloved platform, despite my feelings about its current ownership political climate. However! I feel like I don't currently have a dreamwidth account, but it can't be the end of the world hard for me to get one. And I may have actually set one up years ago but forgotten.

TL;DR whatever you choose to do, I'll personally stay connected!
