The end of an era

I'm not comfortable agreeing to terms of service that I can't read, so it's probably time to delete my LJ.

I've been cross-posting for quite a while, so I don't mind being being here rather than there, but I'm sad to see LJ go.

Oh, yes.

I wish I'd gone ahead with deletions back in January. But I didn't, so... chores for the weekend, I suppose.

Joining the crowd. That TOS was scary.

Admittedly, I haven't read the TOS. I don't know Russian, so all I've seen are the translated excerpts too. What I've seen looks scary knowing the current political climate in both Russia and the US. So, I'm done with LJ.

This occurred to me kind of out of the blue. Does anyone know what is happening to LJ? Has there been any announcement that I missed?

Thanks for the info. That sounds indeed disconcerting. Not sure what I should do. I might just hang in there without agreeing and see what happens. Although I don't know what is the lesser evil, to agree and then delete the journal or not agree and keep the journal untouched?

Yes, I would also hate to lose membership in some communities. Therefore, I'll probably also stay lurking rather than posting.

I agreed despite my better judgment. Mostly just to see if anyone was still left on LJ. There are still a few. Idk what I'm going to do at this point. I think I want to delete. I never have backed up my journal, so maybe I should.
