Dreamwidth Friending Post

So, judging from the sudden influx of people who have added me on DW in the last few days, I'd say that LJ deciding that anything LGBT-related is adults only has been yet another last-straw.

If you'd like to make some friends on DW then leave a comment saying something about yourself, so that you can tempt people to add you.

(It might also help to post your LJ name, if you have one, and it's different to your DW one, so that people who used to know you can find you...)

This will crosspost to LJ, but I'll disable comments there...
