Vote [ profile] rm in the elections. There are only three users who have a serious explicit commitment to freedom of speech in their platform, and [ profile] rm is both the best and most popular of these. My second and third choices are hopeless, so my ballot is effectively truncated.

This is one of those cases where I would rather that [ profile] jameth, a non-serious candidate with no articulable platform, win than the current leader, [ profile] legomymalfoy, because I think that LJ is ultimately doomed anyway, and a candidate who is serious about the status quo is significantly more likely to give the advisory board an air of legitimacy than a candidate who represents the protest vote. Still, I won't give [ profile] jameth my second- or third-place vote because I think it's probably better to vote sincerely and see how it goes.

Note: this is somewhat different from how I would advise voting in a general election, because while I know lots of people who have left LJ, I know nobody (or almost nobody; I'm sure I'm forgetting someone) who has left their country because of politics.
