So, LiveJournal is demanding I accept a new user agreement before reading. They call out that the document I'm agreeing to will not be provided in my native language. They called out that they have the right to contact me to send ads. They did not call out privacy rights.

Well,
1) I don't like people who spring agreements on people all of a sudden and say "agree NOW!"
2) No, I do not consent to receive advertising from you. I'm sorry - I just don't.
3) My privacy matters. It needs to be spelled out. If you say "AGREE NOW!" and don't spell out privacy, I can only assume that your deliberate intention is to violate privacy. I don't care how it's violated - content based advertising, profile building and selling, etc..

I'm willing to buy paid service for some of my LJ friends if they'll agree to move to DW. I don't want to lose contact with you, but I also don't want to keep doing business with them.

I dumped them some time ago, when they moved the servers to Russia. I'll miss LJ. I was a member of LJ's Abuse Team for a while, and had some good friends (both Ab00se team members and non-Ab00se team members) there.

About four people read me on DW, these days, and I Dumped FaceBook years back, but I still like Dreamwidth. It feels like home, here, without the spamvertising, or the character limit, and the content ranking according to who payed how much to have it promoted, and...and...and....
