Come on in, the water's lovely

More or less since I started using my Dreamwidth account, the footer on the crossposts to LJ has said that one reason for moving is that I've had enough of LJ's owners being evil. It was the automatic addition of (their) affiliate codes to links in people's posts, regardless of whether that broke links or replaced the poster's codes, that was the prod for doing it.

Now, as well as trying to move onto the 'other sites are doing active, infinitely long pages, we must do it too' friends list view, they're about to cancel paid accounts. Not that they've said so to the English-speaking users yet...

You can currently join Dreamwidth.org without an invite code. (Should they reintroduce them, ask for one.) It really is easy to copy stuff from LJ to DW. It's much easier to use on a mobile. Why not join it now, before the rush?

This entry was originally posted at http://lovingboth.dreamwidth.org/481073.html, because despite having a permanent account, I have had enough of LJ's current owners trying to be evil. Please comment there using OpenID - comment count unavailable have and if you have an LJ account, you can use it for your OpenID account. Or just join Dreamwidth! It only took a couple of minutes to copy all my entries here to there.
