Has anyone ever unfriended you without explanation? Did you ask why? Have you ever deleted someone from your friend list without saying why?
I've never done one of these before. YAY!
I've defriended. Oh, yes, I have. I defriended a truly psychotic and obsessed exbest friend who still is full of drama from what I hear trickling down on occasion and even tried to refriend me on FB recently. I just ignored it until it went away. I didn't tell her why she was cut from my LJ but I'm sure she knows. She commented on it on my "Semi-Friends Only" post.
For her, the crazy didn't work.
I've also done friends cuts when I noticed my flist was too big to keep up with and some of the people I never had a connection to past passing interests. I chose who I friend on my LJ carefully because I discuss my RL issues in depth as well as name names and places. I put things on here that I don't want just anyone that knows me to know. That's why I avoid friending RL friends on here as well. I never want to feel like I have to filter my entries, especially if it's them I want to bitch about. There are a few exceptions to that, and they know who they are.
Since my fandom days I've learned to stay out of random fandom friending. A few of those turned out well, some much better than others. People I friend now I do so because I feel they are worth me getting to know and letting them get to know me. I may not comment on every entry, but I do read them all. That's why I keep my flist down, and I intend to keep it that way.
I've been cut without explanation, but I'm sure it's for the same reasons that I did my cuts. Interests change and so do people. If I've ever one something to offend anyone into cutting me they've never told me and it has never made it back to me. I'm sure I've pissed some people off on here (I'm bad at making fic challenges on time, that's why I quit doing them... and losing interest in HP fandom) but, once again, never got back to me.
So, I'm making this amnesty time. Defriend me, if you'd like, but tell me why here in a comment. I'm curious. Also, I won't get mad. Don't want to cut me but still feel like you would like to tell me something that irks you about me? Go for it. I won't bite as long as you claim it. No anonymous comments, please. I like to think no one on my flist is a pussy. And what that last sentence is referring to- I figured out it was you. I thought more of you than to do something like that.
Also, pudding will never get old.
