Annual Friends List Cleaning [Jan. 3rd, 2007|10:56 am]
Went through my LJ friends list and thinned it out a bit. Also reciprocated to a few new additions. (Net change was -15.)

I feel that it's important to say that this is not some personal statement or a desire for LJ drama. It's just based on my reading preferences and the journal's activity. I wish LJ didn't attach the emotionally charged term "friend" to it, but there you go.

I concur! That word is the source of so much unneccesary angst.

I do the same thing on occasion. I should do a NYE cleanout as well. Mostly I just filter so people can continue to feel loved. Funny thing is, I read my f-list once as filtered, then skim it unfiltered. This is because I subscribe to a bunch of RSS Syndicated feeds and reading everything in one place makes me happy.

It's always so difficult to trim the list, I find.. I'd like to keep everyone all the time, but inevitably, one winds up finding some people's journals of greater interest than others. Keeping everyone simply means less time to spend on proper responses to entries, though.. *sigh*

I propose that they offer an "Acquaintances List" for those who we know enough to not call strangers. :)

Well, I've yet to do any cleaning. Of course, I've so few friends, I really can't afford to throw anyone out.

I hope that that didn't sound too snipy. I didn't mean to be snipy.
