Have you heard about the sudden controversy over LJ's new TOS? I wasn't aware until I got my monthly newsletter from Dreamwidth and they talked about it. Apparently users are leaving in droves - many importing their posts to dreamwidth. I'm going to think about it, not that I post here hardly ever anymore. I may just merge into my wordpress book-review blog instead...

Not sure the new TOS will really affect users outside of Russia - at least I hope they won't.
