I avoided this for as long as possible but here are some other places I can be found online in the case my journal gets deleted:
I suppose I will upload my masterlist and start cross posting to DW to play it safe.
For those freaking out (understandably so) I really reccomend actually reading the agreement. I've seen a lot of posts of major meltdowns where the user admits they didn't even read the agreement themselves. Yes it's time consuming, some parts are difficult to understand (and it all may not matter since the actual legally binding agreement is only available in Russian) but it doesn't hurt to give it a read before signing and then biting your nails and wondering what you may have agreed to.
As far as I can tell the agreement is not too different from other agreements when joining websites. Legally, you are only beholden to the laws of your resident country (as far as getting into trouble with the authorities) but the power to delete and purge your account (without any provided reason--I did read this part carefully) is up to the new ownership at LJ.
Long story short; the "worst" thing that could happen is your journal is deleted. Which is pretty terrible and makes me extremely sad since I've had this account since 2003. So, yeah I would reccomend backing up anything important and perhaps having an account at an other platform just in case.
Anyway, feel free to add me over at DW! Hopefully I can figure out the cross-posting thing.
