It sounds like there's a non-zero chance that Russian political shenanigans are happening that could cause LJ to implode in the relatively near future. Details: http://siderea.livejournal.com/1330197.html
Even if you're never intending to post there again, I would encourage everybody who's still got an LJ account to import it to DreamWidth. It's a chunk of our collective shared history, and I think it would be a shame to lose it.
And, more importantly, you can do it easily and for free.
1) Go to DreamWidth and make a new free account: https://www.dreamwidth.org/create
2) Log in
3) Go to the Import Journal page, give it your LJ login info, and click the buttons:
Do your part to help out future historians. And give sentimental softies like me the ability to look back with fond nostalgia on our shared past by reading old entries. :)
