The nearly three-year marriage is dissolving with Six Apart’s sale of LiveJournal to Russia-based SUP a deal expected to be announced Monday. The financial terms aren’t being disclosed.
If you buy during the first 36 hours of the sale, we’ll donate $25 of your purchase price among four organizations: RAINN, Witness, the EFF and Creative Commons. And if you want your donation to go to just one of the organizations you can instruct us to do that too.
So each group gets 1/4 of $25 for each permanent account? Nice gesture, anyway.
Many people have expressed their outrage and dissatisfaction with Six Apart policies far better than I.
So, I’ll just use an image.
The process of backing up my journal, and transferring to my domain proceeds apace. Still deciding what other actions to take. (Whether to continue crossposting, or switch to InsaneJournal or GreatestJournal, or… dunno.)
