As my earlier friend post indicated, I tend to err on the side of not-friending, because I don&#8217;t want to put people on the spot. So for what it&#8217;s worth, that&#8217;s my way. It may be a slightly low-self-esteem way, but it&#8217;s my way and by gum, I have a justification that makes it sound considerate!</p> Felicity You inspire me to ask.. 2008-07-28T21:38:04+00:00 2008-07-28T21:38:04+00:00 <p>When must you friend? So often I&#8217;ll see a &#8220;friend&#8221; of a friend, and feel some silly karmic obligation to say &#8220;oh, hi, my life is richer for having known you way back when,&#8221; (though with a little less cheese). Must those people be friended, or is it okay to send a hello without friending someone?</p> <p>Good idea on the tapering mechanism by the way. I hope some of the sites mentioned pick up on the idea!</p> Grizelda re: But, but, but 2008-07-28T16:54:24+00:00 2008-07-28T16:54:24+00:00 <p>That&#8217;s why I propose the system confirmation. There are definitely folks I myself like keeping the sneaky passive eye upon ;)</p> <p>Maybe I should just make a big blanket announcement: Defriend me if you want to, I shan&#8217;t hold it against ye!</p> Felicity But, but, but 2008-07-28T15:20:27+00:00 2008-07-28T15:20:27+00:00 <p>Some of us still feel that connection, regardless of how well we express it.</p> Novel
