Copied from my personal journal.

So I was attempting to click through on a Read More tag on a friend's LJ, when this pops up:

Lemme say that one more time for the folks in the back:

ATTENTION: this translation of the User Agreement is not a legally binding document.

So unless I agree to something written in a language I do not read, I can no longer access a blog I have been using over fifteen years.

I did one final import of content, so I have whatever recent comments have been left on the LJ side of the divide. And then I clicked OK on the agreement long enough to save my 200+ userpics, and deleted my account.

I do hope I'll see more of you on Dreamwidth in the future. I'll miss those of you who don't make the switch.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
Stolen from my abortive attempt at LJ Idol Season 9: Life long San Francisco Bay Area resident, married since 1991 to [personal profile] gridlore, also a Bay Area native. I'm morbidly obese and middle aged. I trend toward the introverted side of ambiversion, and self identify as a recovering depressive (directly analogous, IMO&E, to being a recovering alcoholic). My passions are science fiction conventions and Burning Man, both attending and volunteering; my current Default World boss is someone I work with in the desert. I have too many stuffed animals and not enough bookshelves, too many half-finished craft projects and not enough hours in the day to finish them.
Top 5 Fandoms:
I'm old enough that I remember the days before that word became quite so balkanized - but I also realize that it was a time when the word referred to F&SF to the exclusion of most all else, so I'm coming around on that point. If I had to give a list, it would probably be (in no particular order) 80's music, classic Doctor Who (I'll watch New!Who, but it's never captured me in quite the same way), [livejournal.com profile] seanan_mcguire's Toby Daye novels, Kushiel's Legacy, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I'm an erstwhile pundit fan and still moderate Texts from the Anchor Desk (officially the co-mod, but the blog founder hasn't been on Tumblr in a while).
I mostly post about:
Day-in-the-life stuff, with occasional descents into the land of memes.
My last three posts were about:
A short rant about LJ's new user agreement and deleting my journal, a locked vagueblogging post about feeling unappreciated for some volunteer work I've been doing, and a post about an unnerving amount of work that needed to be done on my car.
How often do you post? How about commenting?
I'm better about the latter than the former, though truth be told I'm not very good at either. ;-) I took part in NaBloPomo in November in the hopes that it would get me posting on a regular basis again, and it's helped a little bit, but I'm still nowhere near as prolific as I was in the early days of my journal.
