     As of a few days ago, the IP addresses for blogging service
     LiveJournal have moved to 81.19.74.*, a block that lookup
     services locate in Moscow, Russia. Now users -- especially
     those who do not trust the Russian government -- are leaving
     the platform and advising others to leave.
