Well, damn...just about all my friends and followers do this stuff. And even I...


Hey! Wat a minute! This is your way of trying to get rid of us, isn't it? You bastard! See if I EVER read any of your stupid articles ever AGAIN!

The category they didn't include is "Any of your soon-to-be-ex-husband's friends and family."

That's a good one. : )

heh. I am guilty of a few of those things, absolutely.

ETA: agreed on the ex-defriending-phenomenon. I was advised by a group of women I know to defriend all of said ex's family/friends as a way of "cutting" out the negative + moving on. Oh women.

There are a couple of very big differences in the situations.

Well I'm off to trim my FB list. Right after I take a shit, trim my nose hairs and scrape the smegma from my foreskin.

The In-Joker: Have you ever gone to someone else's high school reunion? Unless you are the world's most patient partner, of course not...

I went to the 10yr reunion w/ my wife & wife’s best friend since pre-school & her husband (who later turned out to be a serial player, got divorced, re-married, and died of Hep C from playing with Heroin in HS). The husband & I went up to folks and said we were in their history, science, english, IL State history class and great fun ensued. Both the wives were very pregnant and not drinking; so we had no boundaries. A great night out.

I can't even be bothered to take my sister who I am not on speaking terms with off of my fake internet friend list(s), I'm hardly going to be going through and getting rid of other people. That'd take effort.

I can only really disagree with the Replyer one. I mean, yeah, it's annoying if overdone, but there are people I follow who don't follow me but who actually respond to the @ comments.

If they don't follow me, I can't direct message them. (At least, I've never found a way to do it)

So, people just need to deal with the @ thing. It's Twitter's fault, not theirs, for formatting it that way.

I suppose one could take the "War Games, Thermonuclear War" approach. The only winning move is not to play.
