There's currently a migration to Dreamwidth because the LJ servers have been moved to Russia. This is a security risk (though I hope not a serious one for people who aren't living in Russian controlled territory*) and also puts LJ accounts at more risk for being deleted for arbitrary reasons.
If you're on my friends list on LJ, using a different name on DW, and don't mind letting me know what it is, could you let me know?
