Yeah, once again, when many folks were making snide comments about LJ, the issue was actually that the site and its network were under sustained attack by a hostile and repressive government bent on disrupting political dissidence.
I hate seeing people bitch at LJ when this happens. It's like seeing someone out walking with a black friend, and, when he's set upon by a racist mob who start clubbing him with truncheons, the "Friend" starts yelling at him for making them late!
Please, have a backup journal. Dreamwidth rocks, and it's actually my primary posting journal. I'm pretty sure I have some invite codes.
But don't slam LJ, don't complain about them, don't rail against or abandon them. No, LJ is not being an arse: It's being attacked!
STOP BLAMING THE VICTIM!!!!!
