1.  If you are going to unfriend someone, have the decency to PM them BEFORE you unfriend them.  Don't leave them hanging, and then come back with some lame ass excuse "Oh, I meant to send you a message, I just got busy."  Bullshit.  If you have time to unfriend me, you have time to tell me why.

2.  Why is it so freakin' hard to scroll past something that doesn't interest you, or you disagree with. I'm not always fascinated by your posts either, but you don't see me getting in a tizzy over it.  You'd think I'd curb stomped a puppy or something.  You're really going to throw out an otherwise good friend over a post? 

3.  Who ever is sending screen caps or whatever behind my back, knock it the frack off.  I don't need your help, thanks anyway.

4.  Save the drama for your llama.  This includes discussing my personal life in other people's journals.  Get a life of your own, this one is taken.

5.  If anyone out there is on the fence about unfriending me, this would be a good time to go for it.  You get a free pass, my Christmas present to you.  Don't worry about explaining anything, just do it.  If you stick around, I'm going to assume that you've read my profile and that you have at least a modicum of interest in my life.  Otherwise, have a great day, and don't let the door hit you on the way out.

It happens. I was surprized when Eastertheater unfriended me for absolutely no reason. I hardly ever post and haven't posted for a while when it happened. I'm still friends with her so Writerspleasure though. I've only had one person unfriend me because of being offended at something I said. I was putting down a fat lady I worked with.

If that was about a month ago - you wren't alone. She deleted her journal.

If it was at a different time altogether - ignore what I just said.

Yeah, that's when it was. Her journal is still around but says 'defunct' on the profile. Maybe she got tired of having friends talking politics.

What happened? I'm just curious.

A few years ago (I think 2004?) when I still had AOL IM, I was messaging back and forth with a friend. We'd known each other for years, way before LJ. We even met in person once, at a mutual online friend's wedding. I went to her LJ and realized I was no longer able to see her entries. Since I had her on the line, I asked her, assuming it was a glitch or error of some sort. After all, we were talking and joking like always.

She said something along the lines of, "Oh, I can't take conservatives anymore." The bizarre thing is we never talked about politics or anything controversial, it was mostly personal and fandom. And I didn't even post on such topics back then as I do now. This came COMPLETELY out of the blue for me. I remember staring at the screen in utter shock. I really kept thinking she was playing around. She wasn't.

And just like that, a friendship of years and years was ended. I never heard from her again.

I had a friend from way back in my BBS days (Late 80's) and we reconnected on LJ. But she threw out the whole friendship over John Kerry (Who served in Vietnam, you know!).

Yeah, that sort of thing (as well as people falling off the internet for random reasons) has made me vary wary of online relationships. I have learned that I take them much more seriously than most people do.

Yeah, that's pretty much what happened here. I've never said a single word to her about politics or religion.

Honestly I am friends with a lot of people from a different time in my life, but I don't see the purpose in unfriending them. They may still talk about anime and other crap I just don't care about and haven't since before high school, but they've been my internet friends for years and years. I can still say congrats when something good happens and they can still say cheer up when something bad happens. Ya know? I scroll past the crap I don't like.

Then again, I really don't take the internet seriously.

Oh dear. Hopefully, that makes her happy, but I couldn't live with a box of the same colored crayons.

Unfriending Ettiquette

Usually when I unfriend someone its because they haven't been on in ages and it seems like they've given up on LJ. I don't usually unfriend someone after a disagreement unless they unfriend me first. I would hope that people are more mature than that. I have had some people unfriend me and sometimes I don't understand why, but I can point my finger to a recent posting I made which may have rubbed them the wrong way. I don't really expect a message on why they unfriended me, but its nice to get. Lately, I think its actually been people on the right or allegedly on the right who have unfriended me for political reasons. Most of the people on the left who are still on my list are moderates and are strong enough to take my criticisms of the left without being crybabies about it. I think my posting about being Hispanic and being annoyed at how we are all portrayed offended someone because she unfriended me soon after that. I guess I'm not entitled to my own opinion there and that I should be deported back to where I came from, which would be... Miami-Dade County.

I write about my own drama but not other peoples'. Its not my place to comment on other peoples' issues on my own LJ.
