The only paid account features I use are polls and photos. This is annoying because I would consider doing a poll on this subject if I still could.
Should I renew my paid account, now that they seem to have failed to be able to execute an automatic payment? Or should I go and pay Dreamwidth? The problem with the latter is that the extra effort to log in there with openID probably means polls will have fewer respondents.
On the other hand, the Chinese authorities haven't blocked Dreamwidth yet.
