since that gross-ass new user agreement i had to sign just to access my fucking journal the other night i'm backing up my whole journal to dreamwidth and probably gonna delete my lj

everything that's going on here will still go on - including the ficathon, and you can use open id accounts to keep playing.

ilu. shit's terrifying

real life is a thing

I love you too, hunny.

I won't be leaving LJ. I didn't leave when the Russians purchased this site over 10 years ago. I haven't left during any of the mishaps or misteps. I know I may miss out on some connections by staying...that's sad, but it's okay. People are allowed to feel the way the want to feel about the new TOS. To me, it doesn't feel much different than anything else I've signed for social media.

I still have a back-up on DW.

I haven't totally made up my mind what I'm going to do. I might just move dw as my base of operations and post occaisional updates here? I don't particularly like dw's layout/functionality/etc. or at least not as much as lj's but idk. something specific about this update made me feel... off. there's plenty of ways social media can make you uncomfortable but it probably shouldn't be in the user agreement (which.. side eyes @ apple and their shady business)

i'll try to let you know what the plan of action is when i'm sure. ilu ilu
