A friend of mine recently culled his friends list, apparently. And I have read three complaints about it, as comments in his journal. And the worst kind, the kind where they pretend to be kidding around, so that one can't get mad, but really, they're not kidding at all.
Cut him some freaking roses! Cut ME some freaking roses! I've been wanting to cull my Friends list for AGES but I'm afraid of the backlash! So I use my Friends filter. But other people come by and read my Friends list and it's filled with BORINGNESS. My reputation is ruined! My Friends/Friend of ratio is way too high!
Just because I don't want to read your journal doesn't mean you're a bad person, or even not cool. It just means I don't want to read your journal. It means I don't like your writing style, or you write about boring things. Or you write about your friends in real life, whom I don't know. Or you write only short little entries; I prefer stories. So what? Why do you fucking care what I think? Fucking suck it up, you pussies! Jesus. When someone drops me, I don't get mad, or sad! I just think they have no taste.
