Just to say - I have no plans on going anywhere. I *like* livejournal. In the past sixteen-odd years, I've been on GEnie, Usenet, mailing lists, webfora, chat and *here*. And I've been here since 2001 - longer than any other form of electronic interaction. It works beautifully for fandom - one's friendslist is like mailing list where *you* chose who you want to read, and it goes everywhere, but there are also places where you can focus, and you can say whatever you want (more or less) on your own journal.

I love seeing how all my interests/universes/selves intersect in a venn diagram of journals - media fandom, filk, general sf fandom, real life friends, judaism - even knitting. I especially love when people from one part of my universe get into comment discussions with people from another part. It's freaky, but I love it. And if we migrate over to greatestjournal, I'll lose that because not all of these people will migrate. So, I'm being selfish. And lazy.

But I also want to wait and see. This just *happened*. It may have been brewing for a couple months, and the rumors were running late last week, but it really just happened, and now LJ has more than just suspended communities and journals. It has a segment - one of the few segments consisting largely of outspoken and intelligent adults - up in arms. And it knows this is not a good thing. Wait and see.

Comments

That's actually rather how I feel. I don't like what LJ has done - but I love and value my network of people here and suspect it would never be totally recreated elsewhere.

I've got the same sort of thoughts: wait and see, and figure out where most of my LJ friends are going. As much as I've liked having multiple icons, I'm wondering if supporting LJ continues to be worth while.
