It's confirmed that the LJ servers have moved to Moscow. Which explains that long outage last week...

I'm finding it hard to process all the ramifications of this at the moment, so I don't have answers, but I wanted to pass on the information.

Oh shit. I do love my LJ, but don't want it deleted or blocked or whatever because of its content. Not that another page to tend to is on my wish list for 2017. Don't know what to do now.

Yikes. :/ I have been using DW on and off, but it isn't as active as LJ.
I guess it is time to back up everything, just in case.

Oh no D: D: D:!!!! That's so disheartening, since I think LJ is way better for interacting than Tumblr. Fingers crossed this doesn't affect non-Russian users.

I'm kind of sceptical that this will be a big deal for english users. Or perhaps in denial. It's still run by the same people as before after all.

We shall have to see what comes.

Yikes. Crossing my fingers that nothing really changes, but this motivated me to finally back up my stuff to Dreamwidth. Thanks for signal boosting, I hadn't heard anything about this. :(

Oof... thanks for the boost! And I was just about to come back to LJ... It's hard to track everyone down DW...

Well that makes sense now. I tried to access LJ from work the other day on my lunch and it got blocked bc of the Russia issue. What a bummer.
