I don't think I can agree to the new LJ user agreement. It is subject to Russian law, the translation to English isn't binding and I don't read Russian so I'm reliant on translation, it allows them to email advertisements to me (!), and they can change it any time they want without notice and the changes instantly apply the next time you use the site.

I don't think I have much of interest to the Russian government. But *anyone still breathing* is of interest to advertisers - and possibly some people who aren't - and I trust these folks about as far as I can throw their entire country.

I wish I had a way, without accepting the agreement, to post. I'm told cross-posting won't work until you accept, but I'm going to try.

I hate to leave behind the folks I only see on LJ, who don't mostly post public. (The ones who do post public, I can still follow, and decide if I want to comment.) But I also really, really can't stay any longer. I'm rather regretting not leaving when they moved the servers, but at the time, I weighed the issues and wanted to stay with the people there.

ETA: Alas, as expected, this can't cross-post. At least it will hopefully be visible here for anyone who looks?

I haven't quite let go, but for me it's different because I haven't been /visible/ there for years.

I am thankful that two people so far have changed to either primary DW or shifted their blog cross posts to here, but. ...

I'm kinda really worried about a certain mutual of ours who still has primary social and an /enormous/ creative personal history there. :(
