Well, it wasn't enough for LJ's Russian corporate masters to move the servers to Russia.  They disabled HTTPS, too.  I'm done here.  I might bother moving to dreamwidth.

I am on DW with the same username, FWIW [I don't currently cross-post from here to there, though]

I think that's a direct consequence of the move to Russia; encryption is all but illegal there. My company had to build a special version of our product with all encryption removed in order to sell it in Russia. And that wasn't due to ITAR, that was an internal requirement from the Russian government.

When I can be fucked to bother, I can still work up a righteous head of anger at what happened to LJ. SixApart clearly had no idea what the hell to do with them, and at several key moments when even a tiny infusion of management+engineering talent could have turned it into a world-beater, they shrugged their shoulders and let facebook crush them like bugs.

Oh well, so it goes.
