Ah, DDoS attacks! How nice. One happened yesterday and they've been interminable for a couple weeks. (I wouldn't know this, as I've been at work when the others have occurred and work blocks non-approved websites, but I have been since informed.)

This may be important to thine edification: This is (probably part of the reason) why LiveJournal has been under DDoS attack in the last few weeks: Alexey Navalny's War on Russian Corruption.

So, people who grumble about "the Russians" taking over LJ should remember that in Russia, LiveJournal isn't just the top blogging platform, it's THE blogging platform. It is Russia's free press. It is the tool being used to fight corruption and advance the cause of democracy. And, more practically to LJ users, the Russian-speaking sector of LJ is the reason LJ is still there at all.


This means I should probably start archiving my bandom fic on DW or an archive site. Ugh, that'll take a long time.
