Beware LJ's new user "agreement"

For the few old-school Internet die-hards still on LiveJournal, I share this from [personal profile] clevermanka's Clevermanka.net blog:

LJ's new user agreement is a giant crock of shit and what you sign might not even be the actual agreement. The language of the English version says “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.” Which is, conveniently, not in English so who knows what you’re actually signing.

So I'll be deleting my LJ soon. Sadly. Man, all those years of journalling... At least DW is kind enough to let us back up our LJs.

If you want to stay connected in the New Home for LJ (aka Dreamwidth), connect with me via my [personal profile] mckitterick Dreamwidth blog (this is x-posting to LJ, so if you're reading this here on DW, hello!).

Best,
Chris
