[META] Goodbye, Livejournal

On the 9th of April, I deleted my LiveJournal. I wrote about it at length. Suffice it to say that I, too, share in the concerns of many many other users that the new Terms of Service imposed on LiveJournal's user base pose too great a threat to the rights of users to be tolerable.

I undeleted my account today. In the end, I decided that trying to slow down link rot on the Internet was a good reason to keep this up as an archive. I am not going to be active here. For that, see rfmcdonald at Dreamwidth, A Bit More Detail over on WordPress, and over at Facebook for starters on social media.

Goodbye, all of you here. It has been fun. I hope to see you all elsewhere.
