Howdy folks. I've now migrated all of my entries over to DreamWidth. I still need to poke a few things over at LJ, but I'll be blowing that account away, with a strongly worded letter, in the next few days.

So why did I move? Russians. Oh, I'm sure the run of the mill people of Russia are good folks, but their government is rather tyrannical. They especially don't like LGBTQ folk, and LiveJournal (which is entirely Russian-owned now) has to bow to government regulations. That means no discussion of LGBTQ-issues that "condone" the lifestyle. Fuck that.

Now from what I've heard, LJ admins have been fighting this, but it sounds like they've lost. So my hats off to them for doing what they could for so long. But I still can't condone it.

Another two things I don't like are that the Russian terms of service take complete precedence over the English terms of service. I don't often read the TOS, but I do like that options. And a legal document is not something I'd care to trust to Google Translate. Beside, what was I realistically going to do? Sue a Russian company (or the Russian government) in Russia?

And finally, I don't like having my credit card info on file over there.  They have it until the expiry date anyway, but I'd just rather not.

The only thing lacking seems to be cross-posting to Twitter or Facebook, which I'd have liked.  Alas.

So here I am at DreamWidth.  Welcome.
