Welp. That's that.

That's going to be a hard-no on the agreement. I'm migrating to Dreamwidth, Stoney321, but I doubt I'll update much, just as I do currently.

However, I'm very active on Twitter and Tumblr, @Stoneyboboney in both places, and my pro-author Tumblr is @itslaurastone.

If you'd like to stay in touch, that's how.

I'll be purg1ng this journal shortly. Typo on purpose in case they jump the gun on folks like me mentioning this.

What about the agreement bugged you?

Uh, most of it? They can delete at any time if they don't like my content/find it offensive. They're going to mind these for data to sell to advertisers, too. There's no assurance that anything I've marked as private will remain so.

TL-DR of the agreement is that you have to agree to Russian laws (no LGBT content is safe from their purging), you have to obey Russian laws with regards to content, and some long-winded passages are basically: YOU CANNOT SAY ANYTHING NEGATIVE about anyone Russia likes, aka Drumpf, etc.

They also say that in addition to being able to delete/purge, they can bring criminal charges. I mean, good luck with that, but I'm not okay with "agreeing" to it.

Here's a long, detailed breakdown: http://turnonmyheels.tumblr.com/post/159196397371/kyraneko-fierceawakening-suricattus

Link won't load, there must be a million people trying to look at it. My understanding was that the TOS applied to Russian bloggers only and is not binding in English? Am I wrong about that?

Yeah, I think you'll find that you are.

I cannot take the chance of my locked posts being unlocked. Like, there are custody issues there. It's not worth the wait-and-see.

That makes total sense, yes. Sigh. IDK what I'm doing. IDK what I'm doing with most things, so this is just another one on the list. ;)

HAHAHA. Well, the nice thing about Dreamwidth is that I can import my LJ and create a Flist that includes folks staying on LJ. So if you don't move, I'll still see you and can comment.

That doesn't sound terrible. How does one go about doing that with the import??

If you have a DW account already, then click here: https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/importer

Click all the ticky boxes and hit GO. It takes a while. (Mine's still going)

Oh I know how to import!- I'm just not sure about how to keep my friends who are on LJ on the list over there like you mentioned?
Apr. 4th, 2017 09:06 pm (UTC)
There's a "manage friends" option. Upper right, click on "Account Settings." A new screen opens, and you'll see along the top 1/4 of the page, several tabs. Go to ORGANIZE, and in the drop down menu, select "Manage Circle."

Subscribe: puts them on your feed if public (sends them a notice if not, so they can add you to their filter)
Give Access: lets them see your posts.

Click who you want, hit SAVE at the bottom. It's operating under a default that everyone is private, which is a nice change, but a bit more cumbersome up front.

Ok awesome, thank you! I might try that tonight!

All of what stoney321 says, PLUS the English translation is not the legally binding document. What we're agreeing to is the Russian.

Moving to Dreamwidth is easy. There's a queue for porting LJ over, and the LJ TOS/EULA is probably inspiring a spike. Mine took 3-4 hours.

Same name on DW, hope to see you there!
Apr. 4th, 2017 10:42 pm (UTC)
Just double-checked to make sure I have you there!! YAY, SOPHIE. <3

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
