“I’m on SUP’s LiveJournal Advisory Board. Apparently SUP just killed the Basic (“Free”) accounts. […] I advised against this (when I heard a rumor about it awhile back). I hadn’t heard anything recently about it. […] In any case, SUP apparently sees no value in freeloaders not looking at ads, not paying, and oh wait… producing most the content for other members to read, other members who are looking at ads and paying for their accounts.”

It’s things like this that make me glad I left LiveJournal and host my blog myself. It’s quite sad, really. That place was a big part of my life for about 7 years.
