I've decided to disengage a bit from Livejournal. I'm going to continue posting as always, but I feel a need to withdraw away from people who may not read my journal anymore and I'm dropping the vast majority of my feeds and communities. I'm going to issue a rename token shortly, and will be dropping my entire "friend of" list in the process. You don't have to do anything- I'll just be going away. If you want to continue reading, feel free to readd me once the rename happens. I'll be leaving most of my current friends on my friends list, so you'll see the new name (probably hbergeronx) appear on your friends-of list within a day or so. This is a maintenance move to try to clean up some of the past, particularly dead journals and feeds, that's been bugging me, and not a value statement on my current friends list. If I have dropped you from my friends list, it's most likely because I'm having trouble with my own tendency to be judgemental of others, and I'm going to make an attempt to put some of that behind me.
You may also notice a slight change in the content of the journal as well, which for some people who have read my journal despite, this might be a good thing.
I will also be likely to drop my long-held email address: firstname.lastname@example.org . I have been at that email address for over ten years. Things change. I will announce updates after the move is complete.
Apologies for any confusion this may cause. Thanks for your attention.
