In all these years, I have never gone to Wikipedia to read about LJ. Which I did today. So interesting. Lots of it is nostalgia - like the DDOS attacks, and the pedophilia thing, and the selling-off, which seems to never end. Some of it is known, but some of it is interesting if not surprising.
Read about LJ!
From this entry, I found out a few things, like the President of Russia had an LJ - and has made comments about LJ's unfolding future. You might not be able to access him anymore, since his LJ/community stopped in 2014 - who knows why, ehem. But maybe you could intrigue him by messaging in English. His community is/was - http://blog-medvedev.livejournal.com/profile - and the two top moderators were - http://blog-d-medvedev.livejournal.com/profile (probably him) and http://moderator-1.livejournal.com/profile. Voice your discontent, over whatever - oh yeah - like we are now all Russians.
And hey! Check out all the known WRITERS who use LJ! - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_LiveJournal_users - (I've got a few more but not available right now).
