So, NOW are we all quitting LiveJournal?

Being required to accept a Terms of Service written in a language that most of us can't read is majorly dicey. Although from what little I know, it sounds like the things that seem shady are EULA boilerplate (stuff like the ToS being able to change at any time).

I accepted it for now, mostly because if I want to salvage anything from over there I will need access. (If you choose not to accept it right now, it tries to force you to log out.) Still, it just seems like another step down the path towards a problem, even if this is itself not a problem.

Oh good, it wasn't just me then who thought that was fuckin' bizarre as hell. I am going through the TOS right now just to make sure my accepting doesn't forgo my journal to be plucked from the internet by the Russian government or something. More realistically, I don't think it's okay for me to blindly accept that, given this website couldn't even have the courtesy to at least offer me an in house translation (thank you again, Google, for the free offer).
