End of LJ as we know it?

Oh noes!
I just agreed to the new Russian ToS (they popped up when I logged in) because I can't just NOT sign into LJ, but what did I just agree to? I tried to read it all but *head spin*. Did I just sign away my life away or something? Or is all much the same as before? I do have a Dreamwidth account but I can't even imagine transferring everything over there (or firing up a place I'm not at all familiar with (is fandom even active over there?)). *sigh* it's all just too hard. I have history here. It's where my fandom home was/is. And it really is a journal and therefore it holds many amazing memories that I don't want to lose.

Yeah, I've been here over 11 years and don't want anything to change, but the problem is that we are using a service and the service can change the rules whenever they like. I don't feel comfortable using a service where laws that ultimately govern the service are mostly completely unfamiliar.

Around the time that lj was sold to a Russian company 10 years ago, things happened (the LJ Strikethrough 2007), and the LJ-based fandom community started to fragment. I guess the people still using LJ are all that's left. I understand not wanting to move and feeling at home here, but I realized that it's the people and the communities that made me feel at home and not just the platform. I want to be an optimist and believe that the active SPN fandom could move to DW if we chose to.

I think I came onto LJ just after all that. I know over the years there have been migrations to DW and I suppose I hoped fandom would take off over there but I'm not sure it has. And now with Twitter, tumblr etc fandom is pretty fragmented anyway. LJ had always been my favourite hangout though.
