LJ FAIL: No more basic accounts

http://news.livejournal.com/106731.html?thread=68484587

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
