I'm less likely to comment if the comments are DW only

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

This poll really should be checkboxes.

I have comments in both places but am considering changing that, to DW-only at least for comments on any locked posts.

I suspect that the Dreamwidth founders were expecting people to see the name written rather than hearing it spoken first.

Every time LJ fouls up I take another step toward setting up at DW, but at the moment I don't even go over there to read or comment.
