Oh Shit
I was seriously considering buying a permanent account when they come up for offer in June.  But if half my flist is leaving LJ, what would be the point?

Please let me know if you're planning to leave or stay to help me make up my mind?

They're going to have to do a lot more than do an ill-thought-out purge to drive me away. I *hate* GJ.

I'm currently undecided.

I'm waiting to see if LJ takes action and brings back the sites that didn't deserve to be suspended.

Though I still may decide to leave. I'm just not comfortable remaining to an organization that listens to a group affiliated with hate groups.

I totally agree. But I also think that LJ didn't have much of an option in this case. Those folks pushed all the right ToS buttons to cause the most impact. Internet terrorism of a sort. I'm not afraid to admit that right-wing religious fascists scare the crap out of me.

fuckit! I have tried 3 x to post this! LJ is fucked today!

I'm staying :)

I hear you. I'm hoping this dies down or they put off the offer for a while, because I wanted to get one as well and now I'm not so sure. I still WANT one, but I'm not spending 5 years worth of subscription to get something that won't last another six months, you know?

Exactly. :~)
31st-May-2007 02:16 am (UTC)
I am staying.

I'm staying, and I predict that the people abandoning ship will return when they discover how horrid GJ is.
31st-May-2007 02:22 am (UTC)
I'm staying.

Just this week I started thinking about getting a permanent account.

I might in June as well. As a birthday gift to myself!

31st-May-2007 02:24 am (UTC)
HA! I'm in your boat, babe. Oh why did this all have to happen when I wanted a permanent account? Maybe it's fate telling me something.

Also, I'm too lazy to jump LJ ship. XD

*we fear change* :~(

Well, I hate the thought of having to learn all new ways of posting etc. MySpace terrifies me! It's all noisey and flashy and leaves me flailing!
31st-May-2007 02:25 am (UTC)
I'm staying for now, unless things don't improve. I'm very much in a holding pattern right now.

So far, I don't know any one who has actually left LJ. Lots of my flist have revisited an existing or opened a new Greatest Journal account so that they have somewhere to land if things blow up here.

I have had a permanent account for about 3 years now, and it's convenient not to have to make payments and to have lots of icons. But if I had it to do over again... If nothing else, it takes away the leverage of threatening to cancel my account if they continue to make poor censorship decisions.

I'm staying. I have too much invested in this journal to ditch it, but I do have a GJ that I made over a year ago for hosting art(It's pretty much completely empty), so if push comes to shove I'll upload all my art there if there is some sort of mass exodus.
I think all I'll be doing at the moment is adding back people who have friended me and then flock some of my adult art. But then again, I've been meaning to do that for almost a year now. (I'm lazy.)
31st-May-2007 02:40 am (UTC)
I've been seriously thinking about flocking my adult art too. (but have been too lazy/busy ;~P)
31st-May-2007 02:34 am (UTC)
GJ sucks like a giant sucking thing. Staying.
31st-May-2007 02:35 am (UTC)
Much like others before me, I'm waiting and seeing. I wanted a permanent account, too, but I don't want to give any money right now when I know for a FACT that rape/incest survivor LJs have been deleted. It's one thing to cut out actual pedophiles, quite another to take away the place their victims went for support. I have a GJ (heretofore used only in emergencies, such as LJ blackouts) but for now, I'd really rather stay unless they don't restore the journals that were deleted unfairly.
