Please go here for a handy-dandy guide to unfucking-up your eljay.

Especially pay attn to whether or not automatic payments have been (re)enabled. Apparently there's been some instances of this happening without a user's knowledge.

I've set up a Dreamwidth account (same name) and am in the (ridiculously long) queue to import my eljay. I'm not sure if I'm going to give up on LJ entirely, but who knows what the hell the Russian PTB will do next? I'll be cross-posting at the very least.


ETA: [livejournal.com profile] megamagicpower left this beautiful comment on Worst Person of the Year [livejournal.com profile] igrick's condescending post:

Livejournal's effective use of Subjects in its comment system has been one of the few things that sets it apart from the majority of other blogs, forums, social networking sites and pretty much any website facilitating communication between more than two people that you could name.

...


News, blogs and social networking sites presume conversations to be a passing whimsy, that you will not want to follow a discussion after you have said your piece. There's nothing to follow! The comments will be lost to the void within hours! Forums, on the other hand, know the value of a discussion, but presume that these discussions are a single stream of conversation, rather than different streams branching in different directions from a common source. To navigate a particular sub-stream of the conversation, you have to scroll through and find where the next person quoted the last person who spoke.

LJ falls victim to neither of these design fallacies, and thus has developed what is, in my opinion, one of the most effective comments systems on the web.
