A glance at DW's newest posts shows a significant number of Russian language bloggers. From some of the posts I see that there are a number of migrants from LJ. As far as I'm concerned, they're most welcome. In fact, I'd like to know if there's an equivalent to the dw_codesharing community in Russian.
However, for those making light of LJ's problems, a question: if DW becomes another site helping Russian dissidents organize, why would anyone think DW will be immune from attack?*
And this from Dreamwidth News's Weekly Update: 6 April:
I'd also like to take a few minutes to publicly offer support to LiveJournal, where the team has been doing an incredible job in responding to and mitigating a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. If you haven't been able to reach LJ in the past few days, this is why; the current theory in the press is that the DDoS is a political statement being made against Russian-language bloggers using LJ as their platform. We wish the LJ team luck, perserverence, and a bottle of really good top-shelf liquor in trying to combat the problem.*And no, this is not a reason to discourage Russians from coming to DW. Or at least a really craven reason.
