LJ's at it again.
I know some of the folks on my f'list/circle have accessibility concerns, and I know many more (myself included) get headaches, eyestrain, and even migraines from LJ's current comment pages. This will take those same issues to everyone's f'lists and make it impossible to avoid. Coupled with the news that they recently closed their entire US office
, meaning it's even less likely that concerns from this part of the world will be taken into account?
Yeah. I think it's time to shut down all operations on the LJ side of things. I was already starting to lean that way in recent weeks, but this cements it.
I think everyone I'm currently following on LJ, I'm also following through another type of social media, be it Dreamwidth, Twitter, or Tumblr. If you want to keep reading my journal and you're LJ-only, though, I would love to have you! You can even use your LJ ID to log into DW
, and all of my locked/filtered posts will show up just like they do on LJ.
But: I will not be crossposting to phoenixchilde
anymore, and I'll only use my LJ account to access stuff that hasn't made the jump to DW.
We had a good eleven-year run, LJ. (Eleven years. Holy shit.) But we are never, ever, ever getting back together.Originally posted at Dreamwidth | comments | jump in wherever you'd prefer! (how to do that with OpenID)
