I'm really, really sorry for my LJ-only friends, but I'm going to be deleting my account. I will not sign the new User Agreement, which contains the following:

ATTENTION: this translation of the User Agreement is not a legally binding document. The original User Agreement, which is valid, is located at the following address: http://www.livejournal.com/legal/tos-ru.bml.

No. I'm not signing something that is only legally binding in a language I can't read or write.

Please note that, User shall be subject to Article 10.2 of the Federal Act of the Russian Federation No. 149-ФЗ if more than three thousand Internet users access the Blog (the Blog’s page) within 24 hours.

digitaldiscipline.tumblr.com has done the heavy lifting on the act cited. Here's one important part:

1. The owner of a website and/or a website page on the Internet on which generally accessible information is placed and to which access exceeds 3,000 users of the Internet per day (hereinafter referred to as “blogger”) when said information is placed and used, for instance when said information is placed on the given website or website page by other users of the Internet shall ensure the observance of the legislation of the Russian Federation, for instance:

1) shall not allow the website or website page on the Internet to be used for the purpose of committing the acts punishable under a criminal law, disclosing the information classified as state or another specifically law-protected secret, disseminating the materials containing public appeals for carrying out terrorist activities or publicly justifying terrorism, other extremist materials and also the materials propagating pornography, the cult of violence and cruelty and the materials containing obscene language;

So, no. This is the end of my Livejournal. I will not sign that contract. If you set up a Dreamwidth account, I'll friend you; just let me know who you are.

Crossposting and importing are now broken unless you've signed the new LJ agreement.

To my LJ-only friends: I'm really going to miss you. I cannot abide the new TOS; see http://mme-hardy.dreamwidth.org/339145.html for reasons why. If you join Dreamwidth, let me know, and I'll friend you. (Or allow your OpenID to post, if you'd rather go that route.)

I'll be re-importing all my entries and comments to the Dreamwidth, mme-hardy.dreamwidth.org, before I delete.
