The big purge

I just removed about 75% of the friends on my LJ Friends list. If you used to be my mutual friend but aren’t anymore, you shouldn’t take it personally.

I’ve been thinking recently about the number of people that I keep track of that I only ‘know’ because someone else I know has mentioned them or because they play Amber or design RPGs. I decided to keep friends that I have either met in person or actually interacted with in-person or online.

Really it comes down to the fact that I’m really a lurker online. I don’t really engage with people online unless I know them in some other way. So, keeping track of all those people that I didn’t really know made me feel a little to weirdly voyeuristic.

That said, if you’re still on my LJ Friends list and you would rather not be, please drop me a comment to that effect. I promise, I won’t take it personally.
