Dreamwidth might be an option. It's a fork of the LJ code circa a year or so ago with many improvements, so it's mostly familiar. And it's run by two people which, at least for me, doesn't qualify as a large entity.

You can even import your LJ posts (and icons and other items), so you don't have to start from square one.

I also like Dreamwidth, although I'm still on LJ for now, mostly because I realized that I wanted paid account features there, and that I might as well keep posting from where I had a paid account. I'm somewhat disillusioned with them, though, and may switch when my current account runs out in December.

I thought you were concerned about the politics of LJ.

My concerns were:
  • Feeding more information to be data-mined.
  • The javascript link modification violated my trust

Basically I think I hosting company should hold my data and present it without modification, and they modified it. Why should I trust them not to replace posts with what they want me to say.

Have your concerns been negated or mollified by LJ?

No, but I was feeling lonely.

My best theory is to post things to a small server and then replicate them to LJ. Then if you want to make sure they weren't modified you can check the upstream server.

And the reason to keep LJ involved instead of just running it on my own server is that way I don't have to have as much bandwidth, and don't have to work out an easy to use commenting system.
