Goodbye LJ

It has been pointed out to me that with LJ's new TOS I am technically in violation of 9.2.8 and arguably 9.2.7 as well. I don't think this is a sustainable situation, so I have imported my LJ posts into DreamWidth Studios instead. I am sorry to go, I've made many good friends through this service, but for me this is the last nail in the coffin. I only really used LJ now for "longform blogging" anyway, with links into Twitter and Facebook. This doesn't mean I'm closing this account (though according to the TOS maybe LJ will close it for me one day?) and I might even still post links to new posts on DW when I make them for those hardy few still on LJ.

You can tell me how I'm overreacting, but I don't feel confident here anymore and it seems safest to have any archive of all my posts somewhere else.

I don't think you're overreacting, I think you're being entirely sensible, and you are far from alone.

It's been a very long goodbye. I'll be sorry to see you leave.
