>> Lotsa euphemisms for "not anti-LGBTQIA" - gotcha.

Definitely not. LJ is a poor service compared to DW's non-ad and pro-security stance. :/

>> so I'm not entirely sure where you were going with that?

It's entirely subtext.

LJ moved its servers to Russia for legal reasons. They're showing that LJ is following the law (though it's Russian law), which insinuates that sites like DW are not. DW does still carry the livejournal brand in its software.

By following Russian law rather than American, the company expresses that it's more important that they follow Russian law than sell the company. They're willing to make a costly investment in monitoring, legal write up of the entire ToS in Russian, and physically move the servers rather than sell the company.

Something's up. Not sure what.
