For the commenters

I don't care if I need to head over to DW to comment

I'm doing this because the recent issue about a default link between LJ and Facebook strikes me as LJ showing lack of concern about its core function.

Any friendslocked posts will be DW only, but I'm curious about the effects of different comment policies for open posts.

'Twy' is a word from the Dorothy Sayers translation of the Divine Comedy-- the griffins are referred to as twy-colored beasts.

I wish Dreamwidth had chosen a different name because it's impossible to tell how to spell it from just hearing it. "Dreamwidth, like bandwidth" solves the problem but shouldn't be necessary

I've redone the poll with checkboxes at supergee's suggestion. My apologies to those who've replied to the earlier version.
