I don't know if anyone has taken time to read LJ's new ToS (I haven't), but there's a breakdown of some of the relevant parts over on tumblr. Particularly this:

So if I'm understanding this right - and it's entirely possible that I'm not since my attention span is shit for legalese
  1. our journals are now under Russian law

  2. ALL pornography violates that law

  3. "obscene language" violates that law

  4. anything containing politics they don't like could be deemed "extremist materials" and will be violating that law

It's very likely fanfic and fanart - especially gay fanfic and fanart - is now against LJ's ToS.

I honestly don't know what to do about this. All of my stuff is backed up on DW so I'm not worried about losing the journal itself. But DW is even more of a social deadzone than LJ is now.

(manual crosspost because of issues)

Indeed. :/ Though I'm sure that people who have not yet backing up their LJs to DW will increase the numbers there at least a little.
