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?

Well as you know I have GJ but I don't really like it all that much. I'm mostly just waiting things out to see what happens. The GJ has always just sort of been the back up plan.

I was thinking of getting a permanent account also, and my plans have not changed. I thought many more journals (compared to the thousands) had been removed based on the outcry I read about. But then I heard it was about 500 (still a lot) I was surprised. I do not think it would be fair to run away right now. Although - I don't really have much in my journal, so I have nothing to fear. And I don't think my happiness should depend hinge on what these radical right-wingers are trying to do...I am so tired of censorship, but I do think the illegal journals should have been eliminated.

Actually, now that I know more, I won't be upgrading to permanent. In fact, I may even downgrade. I'm still deciding.

I'm stayin'...takes more than a handful of harpies to get me to move.
31st-May-2007 02:47 am (UTC)
I'm stayin...but made a Greatest Journal in case others I love left...

In a completely UNrelated note, did you get the email I sent to you, which is the same as this post?
31st-May-2007 02:53 am (UTC)
I did! *flails* I am so behind on everything! I will definitely look up some stuff for you. I have some aussie music CDs I could upload too, but my burner is not talking to my comp at the moment. (isn't it ALWAYS something??!) Hopefully that will be rectified this w/e.
31st-May-2007 02:50 am (UTC)
Staying. If the majority of my flist moves to GJ, I'll probably open one of those and just read both.

I'm really hoping it'll die down though, before that happens.
31st-May-2007 02:54 am (UTC)
Not sure if you know me, but I'm staying. Have made a backup elsewhere, but staying for now. Will see how the response(s) go(es).
31st-May-2007 03:00 am (UTC)
Course I know you!! *hugs* By backup do you mean GJ or that you've actually backed up your LJ?
31st-May-2007 02:58 am (UTC)
I'm staying but I'm also prepping a GJ just in case this gets any worse.
31st-May-2007 03:02 am (UTC)
Not leaving. Been around LJ for almost 7 years and there's too much history here (and too many things to archive if ever). I get kicked, otherwise I stay.
31st-May-2007 03:07 am (UTC)
I'm staying, but may start a GJ account if my flist starts heading in that direction!

By the way, I love your icon! Han Solo was my first love!
31st-May-2007 03:08 am (UTC)
Made a GJ just in case.

Will leave if they delete me. I'm sort of semi-trolling them with my interests list.

There's a petition, fyi, against this censorship stupidity, because they've already admitted that they did NOT do it for LEGAL reasons.

The info's on my userpage.

I’m still trying to figure out what the heck is going on. I don’t want to have to go anywhere else. I’m finally getting the hang of things here. It only took me a year. I’d hate to have to start all over again. So unless it gets really bad I'm not going to leave.

31st-May-2007 03:18 am (UTC)
This is my problem too! I get all flaily just thinking of having to learn it all again somewhere else! *is too old and does not cope well with change* ;~P Look at MySpace! My kids are all wizz-bang at that, but I can barely post a picture! :~P And then I have to get them to help!
31st-May-2007 03:19 am (UTC)
Staying. I'm pretty sure this thing'll blow over, at least I hope so because *takes on whiny voice* I don't wanna move...
31st-May-2007 03:19 am (UTC) - Staying
Right now it looks to me like 6apart got steam rolled. Yes it sucks that they caved to the pressure of money and legal fears, but if you've ever seen a totally zealous group get going they're scary., so I can understand LJ wanting to do something ASAP.

It does, however, suck how they handled it.
At this point though I'm willing to let this be the one gigantic fuck up that I allow everyone.

That could change in the future though, but Ir elaly can't see me leaving LJ. I'd rather take a stance here than anywhere else, because here means more to me!

I think in the end the future will just determine paid account or no paid account.

I'm absolutely staying. I mean, I guess if more of this stuff happens, and frequently, it could change my mind. But I have too much invested in my LJ, and I just generally like it a lot better than GJ. *clings*
31st-May-2007 03:23 am (UTC)
I'm staying.
