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.

I think that the terms of services are much the same really, it's mostly just the standard agreements that you will get on other social media sites like Facebook

And regarding the above comment mentioning LJ Strikethrough, that actually happened before the Russian company brought the site, I don't believe that the current owners have ever targeted fandom in that way.

Thanks. I came in after the Strikethrough so wasn't really aware what was going on. During my time on LJ I've seen a couple of migrations - I think this one is the biggest (?). I think many are conflicted because of Russia's stance on the LGBTI community and the works they (as fans) produce. It seems messy... :(
