I am so glad that I write for LJ using a downloadable client and not the LJ post web-page. Either xjournal or ijournal on the mac or the LJApp, Journaler (sadly discontinued) or Vita on the iPhone / iPad / iDevices. The number of times I see "I wrote this post but eljay ate it" on my LJFriendsPage makes me so grateful that I can save a long post in the client in case LJ barfs posting. Pretty much the only time I even see the LJ post page is if I "share" someone else's LJ post to mine or use the "post to LJ" bookmark that I have and occasionally use to post a web page or comic when I cannot find the spoons to do the copy/paste-ing by hand into the client. I am also glad that I back up most of my livejournal content / journal(s) to Dreamwidth as often as I can and also using ljarchive on a windoze/vmware partition when I remember to and/or have access to said windoze.
