Why do people think Dreamwidth is any better than L.J.? This entry is posted at Dreamwidth and cross posted to LJ. I think LJ is far better. IMHO

Depends what you're basing your comparison criteria on. For those with visual/sensory disabilities, this site is way more accessible. And there are no ads. And the diversity statement is pretty impressive. But obviously it's a lot smaller than LJ, so less opportunity for interaction.

It does not get DDOS attacked by the Russians.

And maybe you allow people who are not your friends to comment here?

Oh you do allow people who are not your friends to comment here. On LJ, you only allow friends to comment so I can't comment there. That makes Dreamwidth much better.

I also like that you can import entries and export them with a free account.

The people here are working on better engineered features instead of more eye candy.

It doesn't have the same large communities though.

And I found your journal via niyabinghi on LJ. I added you because we live in the same town.

Yes, sorry, I don't know you, but I was bored and looking through the 'latest things' page, and I saw you asked a question I'd also been thinking about, so I answered. I'm guessing it isn't the norm here to comment random journals ... but hi, anyway. :-)
