Yup, read the LJ 'News' post (complete with no 'filler' about photos and stories and shit), and thought 'too little, too late, Livejournal' (tweeted that too). Considering some of the other
things LJ might have planned to roll out soon (ETA: http://bookwrm89.dreamwidth.org/82622.html
), I'm still not going to be commenting or posting there. Not going to be sending them money. LJ is a company I don't want to support.
It has been for a while though. I'd been feeling increasingly on edge there for some time. My posting habits changed. I started screening everything
. I stopped feeling like I could journal about anything I wanted even when it was under very restricted filter. That's been going on for about a year and a half.
The FB/Twitter thing was the straw that broke the camel's back. A significant straw, but a straw nonetheless. I've been having problems with LJ for a while. Strikethrough affected me personally and that was three years ago (and while it was happening, I posted on that news thread in protest almost every hour back then), it affected some of my friends personally. And everything else since then has been hoping LJ 'got their act together.'
They promised they would, they never did. After reading the latest DW news post, I know where I want to be.
