I've been reading on a number of my friends pages at LJ, that the LJ may be closing down?! Shocked Shocked Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad I sincerely hope not! My LJ is my home, my refuge, on the internet. I'm just getting mine to where I want it and now this?! Argh! Anyway, I checked the LJ News page and I didn't see anything. All I saw was stuff about new features being added. Anyone know anything about this "no more LJ" rumour?

I am NOT amused! Mad

I hadn't heard that Cat! I think I saw where they had been sold to someone else and there were some changes coming from that end, but as for closing it down altogether - no. If they are adding new features and looking for new expansion, it doesn't make sense they would shut it down. I think they may stop the freebie users and make everyone pay or something... I hope this is just a scary misunderstanding. Crying or Very sad

I don't know anything about it, as I don't have LJ.
I would hope that the new owner keeps it up and gives improvement.

I wouldn't worry about it Cahterine, I think some people are taking the changes way to seriously. I doubt they'll be able to impact LJ much with their strike.

I don't think people realize even though LJ is a public place we are all guests (even if paying guests) on somebody else's servers and as such we have to live with their rules or move on.

Yeah, the whole thing was a bit weird. A couple of my LJ friends at LJ explained what was going and it was a misunderstanding by several people about LJ closing down. There was never any need to panic. I gather people were upset about LJ removing certain options first, then saying that were phasing these options out, when they had already completely removed them. Of course, that upset people and they decided to boycott LJ for one day in protest. But a one-day boycott would never have completely closed down the whole LJ. I just read something that was taken out of context and didn't know the whole story.

Yeah, there was some sort of posting strike yesterday. Something to do with sticking it to The Man with a 'content-free day' or 'day of silence' or something.

Which meant I basically had a party and posted loads. Very Happy
