LiveJournal is now requiring even people who log in through OpenID (e.g. me) to accept this user agreement in order to read anything:

As [personal profile] kshandra pointed out:

"Lemme say that one more time for the folks in the back:

ATTENTION: this translation of the User Agreement is not a legally binding document.

So unless I agree to something written in a language I do not read, I can no longer access a blog I have been using over fifteen years."

I actually can read a little Russian (the three years I took in college haven't totally evaporated), but that doesn't mean I have enough confidence in my fluency to sign a contract written in it.

So it is unlikely that I'll be reading LiveJournal at all for much longer (I can still scroll through my friends page with part of it blocked by the modal dialog, but I don't expect that to keep working), which means that I won't be seeing your friends-only posts there, especially if you are [livejournal.com profile] caladri. Migrate over here and let me know. (Or migrate somewhere else and let me know.)

You can also log out. Of course, that doesn't help with locked entries.

There's also noscript - blocking scripts keeps you logged in but also blocks the modal dialogue and greying. No write access, of course. Or I have a post with a comment on it that says how to do the same thing with AdBlock.

Tim, what do you know about the folks behind dreamwidth? have you reached out for support and gotten it? i'm thinking about getting a paid journal here but realized i don't know much about this place.

Me too, slowly

I'm importing...then planning on deleting entries. My problem is in large part that I don't want to give up access to some old friends pages post. But I'll talk myself into letting that go very soon, and get rid of that frigging LJ account.

I couldn't do the import without "agreeing" to the TOS though, which I feel really shitty and squished about. I wish I'd done it earlier, but I didn't actually realize I could. Arrrgh.

Maybe I'll use Dreamwidth more.
