Screw it

Screw you LiveJournal and the horse you rode in on.

(Yes, I am mad about them re-doing the comments pages. I WAS USING THOSE OPTIONS. Also, encouraging people to post more damn videos and images in the comments where they can't be put behind a cut is the last thing I want.)

I am now closing comments on LJ on my crossposted posts going forward. I plan to continue to crosspost the posts themselves for both public and locked posts for the time being. I'll make another post if that changes. Commenting will now be on DW only.

Anyway, my understanding is that Dreamwidth doesn't require invite codes through the end of the year, so I encourage you to get a DW account. If you don't, feel free to comment with your LJ account using OpenID, which will also let you see and comment on any friends locked posts you're able to see on LJ. If I don't already know who you are on Dreamwidth and you don't mind your LJ and DW being linked to the same person, pleaser comment here with both your LJ (using OpenID) and DW accounts to let me know that you're the same person so I can add you to the appropriate filters and such.

I apologize for the extra login step for those of you who are usually on LJ yet want to comment, but I'm really sick of how LJ treats the userbase these years and it's time to take one more step away from using them for my personal stuff. To my knowledge, they never even addressed anyone's concerns from the last news post and just went ahead and implemented the changes despite it being less functionality without explaining why the change was necessary.

Apparently, if you change your comment style settings to use your journal style, they haven't changed, and they're working on a special comment style that will duplicate the old non-customized comment pages. But since I immediately changed my settings to enable this and am still seeing the obnoxious new comment pages everywhere, I'm not feeling super hopeful.

Oh, it turns out that custom comment pages are still a paid-only feature. Or maybe a paid-and-plus feature? Anyway, they're not things that early adopters have.

And yeah, I use keywords like that, too. I need to experiment on a paid/permanent-account-having friend's journal to figure out exactly how the new chooser is assigning keywords, assuming it is at all.
