I drop people from my Friends list rarely, and for only a few reasons: One is people who are ostensibly part of my regular social circle, but whom I have little or no personal contact with. I tend to be very patient waiting for people to add me back, but people in that category who don't add me back after some time tend to get snipped (particularly if they post infrequently).

I like to keep my out-of-town people, or those who are local but whom I don't know in IRL, because I very much appreciate their points of view. I love my circle, but don't want to lose sight of the rest of the world.

Entries that cause me regular angst are another reason I drop people. Surprisingly, I have yet to drop anyone for political entries. *wink*

Yay! I'm still on the list!

So when do we get to see tattoo photos, anyways?

Wait I'm still here?

I find the whole LJ friends thing so silly, anyway. It makes me feel like I'm in junior high school again, worrying about whether I was one of the Cool Kids. (I wasn't.)

Be that as it may, I'm glad I'm still on your friends list. :-)

Yay! I'm glad I'm still on your list. Even though I only see you when I go out (which is about twice a year), I sincerely enjoy reading your posts.

I was certain you were going to cut me.... whew.

You love me! Um.... I mean... I put no stake in friends lists either.

Anyway, yay!

Whew, I'm relieved that I made the cut! ;)

You seem to clean up your list far more often than I do mine... I should clean mine more often.

I've recently had a problem with un-adding people, and they get very, very hurt. I find it an interesting thing, especially since the person I un-friended didn't post very often/never commented on my journal and has never met me in person and has very little in common with me.

Anyhow, glad to see I made the cut!

It wasn't much of a cull, to be honest, but I thought it deserved explanation regardless.

I'm pretty darn happy with my Friends list in general. :-)

That's always a good thing - being happy with those who surround you. No matter how they surround you.

spring cleaning

it seems like a lot of people are doing this at this time. I just dropped about 10 people from my friends list for similar reasons. I am probably going to drop about 10 or so more.

Sometime after you pass 100 friends it starts to get a little overwhelming when they post a lot of stuff you never read.

I almost never remove anyone. They have to do something really wrong to get removed.

*singing* Straaaaa-nger...bothering Youuuuuu! *s*

Funny that one of your last open posts dealt w/ the friends list...(unless you just don't post often, but I doubt that's the case)

Right. What I meant to say is, I've seen your comments here & there with friends we have in common...enough so that it's caught my eye more the once...the last being w/ [livejournal.com profile] evillinn

Would you mind if I 'friended' you? (I feel a little creepy doing it w/o asking) We might not have loads in common right off the bat, but you just seem fun & I love your avatar photos--what first caught my attention... (Yep--crawled around a bit, but as it's in the public, "take a look @ who I am" area, figured you probably wouldn't mind). ...and your 'favours o' the moon'...beautiful. ...for whatever that's worth.

"Friend" away. :-)

My original goal on making posts Friends Only was to keep one particular person from knowing my whereabouts. I'm probably being overprotective of myself, but he's unpredictable and I don't want to leave myself open for unpleasantness if I can avoid it.

I wondered if I was cutting myself out of getting to know other people by doing that, but it seems they often find me anyway. And I'd rather someone find me through shared friends or interests anyway. We certainly seem to share a lot of friends, fwiw!

Consider it done. *grins & winks*

If it's any help, I'm twin cousins w/ [livejournal.com profile] attictroll *s* (sisters from one married brothers from another) He's 7 mo older, but growing up, most folks figured we were b&sister & rather inseparable. We were UGLY growing up together--but I think it strengthened the bond. *g*

Oh poo. I'm a zoo w/ html...just staaaaarting to make it work in my favour, but it's still only 75% o' the time. Oi. *s*

hello, you took part of my poll in my journal. I just wanted to thank you and mention that I have added you to my friends' list, I hope you decide to do the same =)

cat named bug?

i remembered.
i add you.
you need to add me before i can get all pouty because you snipped me.
which would make my reply topical.

since it's not, i'll just say hello.

*Adorable* cat named Bug

You're not showing up on my info page, which is odd. But you're added now. :-)
