Problems with livejournal-- come to dreamwidth

The LJ servers have been moved to Russia. 99 accounts and records have been blocked. This also means LJ is accessible to the Russian government.

Some of the people on my friends list have duplicated their LJ accounts to Dreamwidth, which has very similar code.

Here's how to make a Dreamwidth account that duplicates what you've posted to LJ, and the comments you've received. I think you'll need to duplicate your friendlist by hand for DW, and get individual permissions for non-public posts there.

Ow. I need to research further, but it could be time to bail from LJ. I post occasionally to Dreamwidth, but I've treated it as a secondary account, not a mirror.

I just ran a geolocation check on www.livejournal.com, and it comes up in California. Those checks aren't infallible, of course. The site shows that I'm in New York even though I'm in New Hampshire.

So far the move has only impacted the Russian blogs, but the rest of the world may follow.
