 As seen on [personal profile] jcd1013 's journal:

"I have read enough blog posts to confirm this to my own satisfaction. I doubt this was a voluntary move. This post on the Russian side is particularly revealing: Servers Alive magazine moved to the Lubyanka. Note the five pages of comments. Also, "Alive magazine" means LiveJournal, in case that was unclear.
 
"What this means is that our content no longer has the protection of California law. It is now under the jurisdiction of a corrupt, brutal, authoritarian regime. Russians are far more at risk but what with the incoming president being so chummy with Vladimir Putin, you can draw your own conclusions.
 
"If that matters to you, you might want to move on.
 
"If you do decide to delete your LJ, please consider migrating before you pull the plug. You can import your journal to Dreamwidth, along with your icons, tags, and comments. If you own any communities, you can import them as well. (If you can afford it, please consider a paid account. Dreamwidth is a small company that accepts no advertising. We don't want it to go under. This applies to current users, too.)
 
"I am preparing for the possibility of either the Russian government or SUP shutting down LiveJournal without warning. If you care about your content, I suggest you do, too."
 
Some resources to make the transition:

I've already moved my journal over to DW and it really is fairly easy. I'm [personal profile] alianne82 over there. Please friend me there if you move as well or have already!

Additionally I can still be found on AO3: [archiveofourown.org profile] Alianne82 , on Tumblr: [tumblr.com profile] alianne and on my personal Twitter: [twitter.com profile] lang_witch although that is non-fandom. But feel free to follow me there as well.

I am not going to delete my LJ and I will keep cross-posting for a while. But I wanted to make sure I can keep all of my stuff I have on LJ. I think we should all do that, just in case.
