It's back!  
This is the first time I've been able to get on to my account in a week! I've occaisionally been able to read specific journals if I don't log in but this is the first time I can see my lovely flist or my own posts. It's so nice to see everyone!

Still. However annoying this is, I'm not going to leave lj over it, because in a small way, just by staying here we're all sticking up for free speech - and that makes me happy.

(I also got a fair amount of writing done in the downtime, although still nowhere near as much as I wanted :)

Amen to all that. I was quite lucky in just managing to post my latest thing before the storm broke.

I concur whole-heartedly with your stance on sticking with LJ. Seethed somewhat when I saw someone bitching on a comm about (it would appear) how inconsiderate it was of LJ to allow itself to fall victim to a crippling DDoS attack. *sigh*

Luckily it's come back just in time for me to post mine before the end of the month! But only just, I had some trouble editing it afterwards... There still seems to be a few outages etc.

I wish there was something we could do to be vigilant or to help regarding these DDoS attacks, but afaik there isn't :(

I got some writing done, too. Oh, LJ.

I wish we could help in a more concrete way than just not giving up on them though...

I'm not giving up on them but they've had this problem before and they really should come up with some kind of counter-attack for next time.

*clings to LJ*

Glad you're not leaving LJ either. :) And yes, it's incredible how much it means to parts of Russia.

It's nice to know a company, who for the most part makes incredibly bad decisions, has managed to garner such a worthwhile purpose almost in spite of itself.

This is true. :) And for that I am happy to support it.
