Well, so LJ has a new user agreement, and have locked everyone out until they agree.
So I signed, in order to have access to my own blog. Grrr. Very bad form, LJ!
Whether or not the agreement is actually dodgy, it has been handled very badly... but since when has that been a surprise for LJ management? (Since before LJ was sold for the first time, that's when)

So, some people are panicking and deleting their journals, some are being less drastic. I'm not inclined to delete my journal (the past is the past), nor am I inclined to stop following the people/communities I'm following on LJ (why should I stop doing what I enjoy?). The only thing I'm considering is to stop crossposting from Dreamwidth. But... if I'm still going to be following people, and commenting, is there really any point in stopping crossposting? Especially since there are people following me on LJ who don't have Dreamwidth accounts. (FYI, my account on Dreamwidth has the same username as this one, if any of you are moving to Dreamwidth and want to follow me there.) My account on LJ is a permanent account, so it's not like I'm paying them any money now.

It is slightly amusing to see the complaints of people "not wanting to be subjected to another country's laws" (that is, Russian law rather than US law) when non-US-ians are subjected to another country's laws every time they use a US-based website! Even more so when US laws like the DMCA are very dodgy laws anyway. Remember Dmitry Sklyarov?

Would my posts be censored? If they were, the full version would be available on DW.
Would they revoke my agreement and delete my journal? If they did, I'm not going to do their work for them!
Would they put ads on my journal? I don't know, the agreement is unclear on that point. Bloody annoying if they do.
