So, I maintained several communities on LJ that I closed but didn't delete and moved them all here to IJ a year and a half ago. Now, I'm sort of worried after learning of this letter and seeing that LJ is following through on abandoned communities.

Does anyone know if this is a common practice? Or if LJ contacts the original maintainers first?

I guess I'll have to update with something every month over there or decide to delete them.
