Not too keen on what I'm reading about certain changes to the TOS here...

Going to have to think carefully about what to do :\

I just went and clicked. Everyone is panicked over it for some reason.

It's more to do with the political angle - if you discuss politics on LJ now they can delete your account - because the servers are now in Russia they have to abide by Russia's web laws, which are well...not particularly progressive...

I didn't know that. Makes me wonder about LGBTQ+ stuff now...

I'm thinking of keeping this account, but maybe making it inactive and transferring to dreamwidth and cross-posting fandom stuff to here if I can do that.

I'm loathe to leave - I've been on LJ since 2004 :(

I'd hate to see you go!

I'm staying. I need LJ for sanity. I have nothing other than FB and half the people who cause my problems are there.

think I'll give dreamwidth a go, maybe in tandem with here, and maybe keep the political talk for over on dreamwidth...I really don't want to leave LJ, but I hate feeling like my freedom of speech is being curtailed in even a minor way :(

So I was just reading the TOS and I think you got it wrong. They say post advertising and/or political solicitation materials unless otherwise directly specified in a separate agreement between User and the Administration

They're not saying you cannot post any political stuff at all, just that you cannot be a spam bot trying to get people into some political group/cause/whatever.
You cannot solicit people, which I agree with.

Are you on tumblr at all?

Nope. I hear there is a ton of drama there.

There can be, but I think it depends on your fandom. When I was in the highly toxic NCIS fandom it was impossible to enjoy the place so I quit for almost a year, then I went back and unfollowed everyone in that fandom I didn't consider a friend and then just started following tumblrs I liked.

I've also learned that disabling anonymous messages and making liberal use of the block button is good (especially when you're searching a tag for your favourite character or otp and find one person spewing hate) and with those measures in place I enjoy the place immensely!

One of my other LJ friends was having the same worries as you. She had a lawyer look over the new user agreement. The lawyer said it was standard and nothing to worry about.

So it is fine after all.

Yeaaahhh I'm not happy about this. I already have my blog backed up on Dreamwidth (the importing is very easy) should shit hit the fan. I don't care really about new stuff (I don't post here much anymore) but I do want to keep an archive of all the entries.
