LJ clean up


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).

Actually, you're both. :)
I do live in Seattle and will be at a conference for judges (NAALJ) the day after the trans-conference-- so its not as though you're completely forbidden from seeing me-- I just won't be lingering at the Convention Center.

I feel you on the million filters. Mine are defined based on electron rings. Very close friends, people I actually know in person, trans, and general chit chat to name a few. If I wouldnt say whatever piece of business to a person's face, then they are not reading it.

There are many things I like about LJ and a few things that I dont. It reminds me too often the world is small, we all dont like each other let alone can read and intrepret the writers' voice properly, and should never take the place of establishing intimacy in person. However, it can be a wonderful tool to maintain a connection.

My guess is that your friends and fans will scream in fits if you close your account. Regardless be true to your funky path

I know I'm both an infrequent commenter, and definately not in real-time, so. I'll miss reading your post though - they get me thinking for days afterwards. Best with the rationalising.

...and that would have made sense if I'd actually been logged in...

I hope I get to stay! I am not the most active commenter, but I read everything and really enjoy your posts. For this reason I also hope you will keep the LJ alive.

If I'm a keeper I'd also like to be on any filters you feel comfortable including me in.

Hmm. Maybe I need to edit this to post that it isn't at all related to comments on my journal, but how many journals I can keep up with on a regular basis. I just feel poorly not being able to read everything carefully-- but I also want some equal sharing/voyuerism with other people-- hence the removal of people who don't post much (to their own journals).

Oh yeah, and yes, you're still on the list-- all the mods are. :)
