elisi: (It is what it is)
Life feels a little like this at the moment:


Trump is going to destroy the planet, the country I have lived in for 20 years has been taken over by Brexiteers, merrily steering us towards the most impressive own goal in British history and my fannish home is being taken over by Russians.

To those who've had enough & quit for good (or are thinking about it), here's a handy guide:

How to Move to Dreamwidth and Like It

As for me - well, I've had this LJ longer than some of my children, so I'm going to hang on. I mean, Theresa May can probably read my emails already, and who's to say she isn't sharing them with Putin?

ETA: Oh and I'm not sure the US is all that much safer (article here - with thanks to shapinglight). Not to mention that facebook practically BLEEDS personal information (and might have helped Trump win - with thanks to maia for the link).

So basically:


Besides, it's a rare treat to be able to use 'quixotic'... If you've upped sticks to DW, please make sure I've got you friended, I'd prefer not lose touch with anyone. And obviously I'm already cross-posting and have pretty much everything backed up etc. Meh. I just want shiny things to distract me.

ETA2: FYI - the hive mind has discovered that the popup won't work without Javascript. So if you need your LJ but don't want to sign... There's your way around it. :)

ETA3: From beer_good: 'AFAICT, the Javascript thing isn't perfect; it lets you look at LJ and admin it, and from what I can tell you can comment as well, but you can't post or edit entries, nor can you import things to DW. So as emergency workarounds go it's very useful, but not very sustainable in the long run.'
