The subject line pretty much covers it.

If you haven't heard, livejournal has imposed a new and possibly sketchy terms of service on its users, and more people are leaving lj and heading to dw.

I'm not sure it makes sense to post my request at dw as well as lj, but I'm not sure it doesn't, so I'm cross-posting.

I'm very grateful that the original lj had open-source software so that it's possible to mirror a livejouranl (including the old posts) at dw.

This is really excellent-- it compares Manichaean evil (evil is a force) with Augustinian evil (evil is the absence of good) and demonstates that the plot of LOTR-- and especially the climax at the Cracks of Doom are solidly consistent with the idea that victory comes from doing the right thing, even when it seems completely impractical.

Link found here. Sherwood Smith is doing a reread of LOTR.
