Friends List Cull

I've just done a bit of a Friends List Cull, and wanted to give a little explanation in case you are someone who has activated the option to be notified if someone de-friends you.

1. I still don't like that the Friends List is a "Friends" list, and being removed from it means you are being "De-friended". Anyway, it's not that I now hate you, it's the points below.
*edited to remove incorrect reference to DW*

2. Fandoms come and fandoms go, people change, interests go their separate ways, and it simply may be that I'm not interested in what you're posting about any more, and given our lack of interaction, I'd guess you're not too interested when I occasionally post any more. It happens. It's okay. I've decided to remove such content, as I don't spend anywhere near as much time as I did on LJ and want to make my LJ time a little easier.

3. I took a look at my flist and said "Who's that?!" or "They're still on LJ? Really?". I don't see the point of having names on my flist when I either don't/notice or don't read your posts, or you don't post any more. Whether I have 10 or 100 people on my list, I'd prefer them to be people I actually interact with, whether actively or passively (as in, I sometimes read, but don't comment).

No worries...lol I'm still toolin' around in the SGA fandom, although my writing has been a little sporadic lately due to Real Life and all that good stuff.

However, if you'd still like to hang onto me, I'd be more than happy to interact more. :D

Gettin' ready for work now so...must wander. :)

Oh I'm hanging on to you! No doubts about that!

There's something we have in common that transcends fannish daliances.

:) Although, you must admit, fannish dalliances can be oh-so-much fun. ;)

Even though I'm not around as much, I'm still here! (OMG, I haven't posted in a month?!)

I thought DW called it different like reading and access and stuff, but that was confusing too.

anyway. *random waving*

Interesting. I haven't been on DW since I started my account, and honestly thought they called it the same thing (it was one BIG reason why I figured I might as while stay on LJ). Now it looks like I was enitrely mistaken. Weird.

You're staying on my list for sure. I did have people who havent posted in what is probably 2 years, or turn up once every 6 months.
