Hey all, I've been alerted to some LJ concerns that I thought I'd pass along.  According to [personal profile] twistedchick : Briefly, SUP. the Russian group that owns LJ, has moved the physical servers that LJ information is on to Russia. Nobody who writes on LJ is now covered by the First Amendment, or any other US law governing freedom of expression. Your information -- all of it -- is under the direct supervision of the Russian government.

There are reports of certain LJs being deleted for political reasons, though I'm not sure if that's been verified or not.  Lots of people are deleting their LJs and moving to Dreamwidth.  I'm not sure what I'll do with my LJ (like I need something else to worry about?), but I thought others should know.

* The AO3 has subscriptions now!  You get an email alert when authors you subscribe to upload works.  But this is just the beginning, the test.  More info about how subscriptions might eventually look is here at the bottom.  And of course, they do listen to feedback on all aspects of the archive.

I'm at faviconpslasher and fandoms in the queue include Star Trek 2009, Star Trek 2009 RPS, and possibly J2! Note: 'In the queue' is a relative term, and I give no guarantee for actually finishing these fics in any reasonable amount of time.

*LJ posted some info about the recent attacks on the site here, and there was a very interesting post about the recent events by [ profile] synecdochic  here.  I had no idea that LJ was so politically important for Russia.  In truth, I didn't even realize that LJ had such a big presence in Russia.  That article leaves me feeling much more positive about LJ for being a platform for social change, while feeling disgusted at the idea that anyone would think it's acceptable to do this kind of thing, to continue to support a corrupt government.  But at least it's good to know what's going on.

This is the Dreamwidth account for Pslasher at LiveJournal.  I'm mostly active on LiveJournal and probably won't be cross-posting here much at all.  Feel free to check out my LJ account and friend me there if you wish.
