I'm not likely to move 100% and close this (a permanent) account on livejournal, but given the concerns that the new T&Cs are raising, I'll probably move more towards Dreamwidth. In case you don't know this, it uses the same engine as Livejournal, run by a few enthusiasts and not under the (possible) grip of the KGB (hello, you guys at the FSB, I did mention the KGB here. Nice of you to show an interest in my LJ). At the moment I'm mostly starting posts there and cross-posting to LJ. At some point, depending on things, the latter may stop. Some of my friends have already moved entirely or partially to DW, you might want to consider that.

My address at Dreamwidth, perhaps predictably:

Well, I reckon then it wasn't my IP barred but a problem at the LJ end as I now can access it ok....

Woke up to find I cannot gain access to my livejournal pages; I get an 'Access Denied' page. This happens across multiple browsers and two computers but I can get (as I'm doing now) from my phone nad iPad if I switch wi-fi off (as I'm evidently doing now). This would seem to indicate that my IP is banned from the site. Irritating and perplexing, this. Have mailed their web support, will see what happens. Not enormously happy about this.

Further to my post on livejournal resurrections and apparitions:

[livejournal.com profile] erming commented: Now if only they'd group similar stuff together so you don't get runs of say 3-4 Tanz Macabre adverts in a row...

THIS!! Indeed.....
 Who thought it was such a good idea to allow cross-posting of comments (even of comments on friends-only entries) to Facebook and Twitter? What were they thinking of? Has the Spirit of Zuckerberg taken over Livejournal? If I want something to appear in Facebook I will put it on facebook. If I keep something in Livejournal and, furthermore, if I make an entry friends only, it is for a reason. I'm not going to threat to defriend anyone who reposts a comment made on an entry of mine on to Facebook but if it is a comment to a friends-only entry I would thereafter treat them with the extreme suspicion due to somebody who has no clue about other people's rights or personal space.

The comments (overwhelmingly negative) in relation to Livejournal's announcement of this 'feature' are running to 105 pages and counting.  I have written to feedback@livejournal.com to express my concern and request the withdrawal of this 'feature'. If you, too, feel this way I would encourage you to do the same.
And yes, this entry will indeed appear in Facebook, I specifically want it to -but not having control over whether something I write here or what may follow in response to it appears in other media is a very, very different thing.
prob. an issue with local cache, a restart in both machines seems to have cured it. )

[ Edit ] on trying on another machine and two other browsers, I do get the Rome Burns video. I wonder whether it is an issue with the cache in the two browsers I'm using (Safari and Firefox) .
