I do have to say that LJ has felt increasingly frustrating this spring because of all the site changes. While I choose to post on these journalling sites with assumption that any secret services might have access to them and they most likely don't give a damn because I'm not posting anything they're interested in, and that data security is always a bit of a risk on the internet, I really did not appreciate being made to sign a TOS that says I should follow Russian laws. Because there are a few that I'm not in agreement and, for example, find more than a teensy bit offensive to my person (hello, bi here, and more than eager to discuss and write all things LGBT+). On the other hand, it's not like I'm a primary target as a EU citizen with very few followers and hardly any political content, but it still was unpleasant on principle. Then the customer service has been pretty horrid, not responding to users' comments and worries, but instead keeping implementing changes none of us want, and not implementing changes any of us do want. I worry about the day the new posting interface will become mandatory, because I don't want to use it. I think it was that and the recent Facebook import thing that tipped the scales for me and made me decide to see if I'd rather start using Dreamwidth as the primary platform. But I've been meaning to start posting also to DW anyway, because I'm set to host Write Every Day in August, and I've noticed that after the TOS thing, most of the participants have started commenting on DW. So it's better to be available on DW by then.
Anyway. Following weeks will tell which site I'll be more pleased to use as my primary platform, but I will be posting and commenting on both.
(Eeeee! The posting interface here actually looks like LJ's used to look! I'd missed that!)
