LJ FAIL: No more basic accounts

Bad step #1: not announcing it in news and trying to hide it.
Bad step #2: Having a retarded (non-)reason for doing so.

Community is important, so moving from livejournal is going to be hard, especially since I have a permanent account, and can enjoy the benefits of such. Not sure how a move can be made... I would like to be able to clone my journal, with all of the comments, to another site.

I'm thinking along the lines of a script that'll pagescrape livejournal + posting entries with the proper privacy settings, then posting comments anonymously, with a link back to the original comment + link to username of poster. That way, content will be preserved, although actual data will be partially mangled.

[Edit]
It's also worthwhile to read brad's post on this: http://brad.livejournal.com/2368071.html

Ah, livejournal responds to the drama they caused...

Mostly BS. I'd say the entire post was BS, but that's just me.

Oh, and to answer questions, no, I will not be moving from LJ anytime soon. I will stay only as long as they honor what was initially offered to the permanent account holders.

But I do intend to have a backup plan if I do need to move.

Speaking of which, I also need a way to backup my information on facebook. Ideally, I'd like to keep a copy of all photos tagged with me, all photos I've uploaded, names and contact information for all of my friends. Anyone happen to know where to start?
