So I was attempting to click through on a Read More tag on a friend's LJ, when this pops up:

screenshot of the pop-up window forcing Livejournal users to accept their new service agreement

Lemme say that one more time for the folks in the back:

ATTENTION: this translation of the User Agreement is not a legally binding document.

So unless I agree to something written in a language I do not read, I can no longer access a blog I have been using over fifteen years.

I'm doing one final import of content, so I have whatever recent comments have been left on the LJ side of the divide. And then I'm clicking OK on the agreement long enough to save my 200+ userpics, and deleting my account.

I do hope I'll see more of you on Dreamwidth in the future. I'll miss those of you who don't make the switch.

Hi. I decided to trust that the translation represented the legal doc, but I totally feel you.

All I can think is, "What new devilry is this...?" LJ, you and I may have reached the end of the road with each other.

Pretty much my thoughts exactly.

Yes, I believe this may be the final thing that makes me delete all the content on LJ. I long since imported everything except my userpics.

Say, I think I know you from somewhere.

I left LJ when my trust in it was eroded, too.

So glad I bailed out when I did.

yeah in the process of migrating over the rest of my accounts and purging the entries. Not deleting the accounts because I'm even less comfortable with the idea of someone taking my user handles, unlikely as that scenario is.

Well all us cool kids are here already. ^_^

And I'd been hoping the LJ thing was a poorly thought-out April Fool's day trick

Yeah, I'm done with LJ too. May need to start submitting to NAR instead of just posting here for C_S purposes.

Interestingly, they don't want to to let me delete entries or my account without accepting their terms of use. If there was a "straw bundle past the last straw" possible, that would have been it.
