I'm cleaning my friends list up while I contemplate keeping the account alive and kicking, and what to do with it beyond if I do decide to keep it alive.
There are some people who've been or will be moved off the mutual friends list. This isn't personal-- I just have a limited capacity to read other people's journals-- and that capacity usually relates to whether I know you in real time or not. Similar motivation has got me removing people who have had access to my friends-only posts. I've got 8 million filters as it is and I'd like to simplify, so, if you haven't peered into my eyes directly, you probably won't be on my mutual friends list anymore, with the rare exception of people who have INFO-Only journals-- and read mostly from their other LJ accounts.
I'll be trying to write more open posts. I average 3-5 posts per day for those who are curious-- I'm going to attempt to be more concise and make one of those daily posts public. I'll be thinking more about what filters are appropriate with my remaining friends: If you'd like to be a part of my sex or fiction filter-- please comment and let me know. I'll also be making a relationships/romance filter for those who'd like to be included on that sordid mess. Anyone on my hyperfilter will remain there. You don't get input. Sorry.
I'll also be removing some other people-- those who I hear nothing from. If you are one of those infrequent posters (but you read frequently) and you'd like to stay, just comment here.
This is, by the way, the fault of irregularjoe
ETA: My reduction of people on my friends list it isn't at all related to comments appearing in my journal, but how many journals I can keep up with on a regular basis. I feel that if I cannot read everything carefully and respectfully (since that is what I'd want for people who chose to read my journal), I should not read at all. At the same time I also want to read people who actually update regularly--equal sharing/voyuerism-- hence the removal of people who don't post much (to their own journals. I.e. if you don't feel comfortable with me reading your details, I don't want you to read mine).
