You'd think that I'd have figured out by now that you shouldn't go into crowded student pubs in Tornoto on the very night that the Toronto Maples Leafs are playing a game; or, at least, that I shouldn't expect to understand or be understood in such a loud environment.

Via somewhere, I've come across the startling announcement by Livejournal administrators in the [livejournal.com profile] lj_biz community that in the near future, Russian Livejournals will no longer be supported by Livejournal, but rather by a Russian company, SUP. This isn't so startling as Livejournal's definition of "Russian."

* What criteria will be used to determine whether a journal is "Russian" or not?
It will be a combination of if you write primarily in Cyrillic, have listed your location as a country from the former USSR, or use a Russian browser.


To clarify: Livejournal accounts based in Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, or in any of the Caucasian or Central Asian republics will be considered Russian enough for a Russian company to support them. Livejournal accounts based outside of Eurasia with largely Cyrillic content will be considered Russian enough for a Russian company to support them. Users can opt out of this process, but if they don't it looks like their accounts will be automatically transferred over.
