I came across... Livejournal's Russian owners announce new anti-LGBT policy, fandom stages mass exodus...so I think I will be closing my LiveJournal account, finally. I'm still at Dreamwidth at laura_seabrook , if anyone one wants to follow me here. Only post once in a while now, as most posts go to Google+.
Some one told me about it, and it's true. There's a Live Journal imitator called Dead Journal. I haven't checked this out fully yet, but it seems to specialise in "Dark" rants and posts. Don't think it will replace Live Journal though, which like Google seems to be ubiquitous. Maybe that's not the point.
