Well, That Just Happened

Why did I leave Live Journal? I can't speak Russian and the English translation of their TOS apparently isn't binding.

I'm in the process of moving Evil Author Day to Dreamwidth as well so you'll get a new link for that soon enough.

Yeah - I'll be impatiently waiting for the Evil Author Day to show up here too. :) Oh, and welcome to Dreamwidth.

Freaked me out when I saw the TOS situation last night. Thank you for rescuing me from Russia!!



P.S. When I saw the notice about the print availability of "Fall for You", I figured I'd just add it to my next Amazon order. Had a few other things to get, so that happened today. :) I'm excited. I just finished re-reading it yesterday, actually, but paper is awesome. :) Thanks!!!

The browser translation says the same as the 'non-binding' English thing you have to click on, but still.

I deleted everything after importing it to DW.

*nods* LJ continues its spiral to crazy land ... but current reality is in step with it, so I got nothing

if it matters, I was LJ friends with you on LJ through the handler: shattereternity *shrugs*

Only Found out about the new TOS today, when you post, popped up on Facebook, So I kindly followed you over to DW.

So I didn't want to miss any of your writing, as your one of my favorite fiction writers :)

Some people over on tumblr also actually parsed through the new TOS and it looks like journals have to comply with Russian laws, such as the ones criminalising all things LQBTQ+.

They have to be insane to be that absurd. I'm really hating their view of the world.

Uhm, holy moo-moo's what did I just miss in the last 24 hours, since I don't post to LJ anymore?

I quit actively using my LJ years ago when they first started dumping fandom authors and artists for content. I've kept the account for access to fandom stuff there, but since most groups also link to either DW or AO3, I may just cancel it. Didn't know it was run by some co. in Russia... news to me...!

I don't want to lose my shit from a few years ago so I'm moving, too. And then, I'll erase my LJ account.
Thank you for informing us of this fuckery.

I only joined Lj to read EAD, so it's no biggie to me to move here instead. I have created a DW account, but will you have a community (or whatever the DW equivalent is) for us to join in order to read, as you did on LJ?

As for the LJ TOS - blimey! If you get more than 3k readers in a day, it gets classed as mass media and subject to the relevant laws! And as for the LGBTQ+ position; dreadful.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm only using lj to keep up with a very few people and already moved my content during another issue years ago, so deleting my content now only made me lose three unimportant posts.

What kind of fucking shit is that tos non valid translation, a legally valid legal translation would not bankrupt them it's peanuts... Couple of hundred bucks maybe, as the form bits are pretty much copy and paste from already paid for certified tos translations. Peanuts for a company that size, the company I work for orders legal certified translations all the time it's not like it's cost prohibitive...
To me it looks like lj is hiding something with this non legal binding thing

[personal profile] ladymina 2017-04-06 03:38 am (UTC)(link)
Didn't even get that far. The trick with the translation was enough of a red flag that i decided to delete my lj. Thr fact thst i couldn't delete it without agreeing to the Tos sealed it. Wtf no option to disagree anx delete, sauinv later is an automatic logout and there is zero way to say ni, fuck you delete my stuff instead.
Anyway lj deleted, opinion made clear in the why do ypu delete it section.

I quit using LJ years ago, except for following you....

I stopped posting to my account, it went inactive, and finally fell off - taking all my content with it.

Ah, well, life goes on. And I hate to be xenophobic, but they were making me twitch. I feel like I should start shouting 'Constant vigilance!'

Thanks for moving everything over! I also appreciate the heads up on the LJ fuckery. I don't post as much as I used to, but have so much content from years past. I'm in the process of moving and deleting. I wonder how long LJ will last at this point.
