The Great LJ Migration...  

So I have a question and I want some honest opinions.

Why does everyone seem to think Live Journal is going under?

Maybe I'm missing something but it seems like ever since LJ moved to Russia people just assume it is going under. However, I feel the migration from LJ is going to be a self-fulling prophecy. If you fear LJ is going to disappear the worst thing you can do is abandon it. Now I'm not saying you can't take the precaution of backing up to Dreamwidth, and I admit I've done this for my journal and several comunities, not all yet, but I have no intention of leaving LJ because then I'm just making it's downfall a reality.

Now, having said that maybe I'm missing something? Has something major happened that pretty much ensures it's downfall? Or are we just so upset they are now in Russia because frankly it matters very little to me where they are based as long as I have my Live Journal.

Please be respectful when responding, I have been absent for a bit so it is highly likely I've missed something.

Get others in on this conversation:

I hear you. It's what I've been shouting for years. It's a Catch 22, isn't it? Everyone is leaving LJ because everyone is leaving LJ...

But here I understand it in a way. I don't mind it being in Russia as such. But since they've changed the TOS, I felt a need to at least copy over my LJ to DW. I've crossposted for years anyway, so why not? Also, I'd hate to lose anything since I've been writing on LJ since 2003. :-P

I don't think the site will die, but it will shrink. Even more.
