Dec. 15th, 2005 @ 08:13 pm What is it with friends cuts
Current Mood: irateirked
and all the associated turmoil? 'Comment by this time if you want to stay on' 'Let me know if you really like me' 'if I made a mistake let me know'

Gee, how to make a girl feel special.

Listen, if you don't know whether I want to stay on your list or not, if you don't know whether you want to keep reading my journal or not, then take me off your damn list. And if I miss your damn deadline and I get removed, I'm not commenting to be added back. You made your cut, we move on.

And in other related (by the LJ crankiness only) news:

By the volume of apologies I've been seeing on my friends lists, you sure can tell the holiday freaky time is in full swing. De-friendings! Drama! Tearful reunions! Are we taking it out on virtual strangers rather than running over strangers at the mall or hitting mom with a drumstick? Or is this just an indication of how we're treating people in real life?
Who does she think she is?

I admit that I like to watch the LJ drama at times. I keep seeing those same types of posts "Comment here or else I'll cut you." I figure if they're that desperate to see who's reading them, then they obviously don't feel the love from me so it's time to move on.

I meant to disable comments on this post. *g* Didn't want to be the attention whore, just needed to vent.

(But I am glad I'm not the only one!)

I disabled comments on a post once and someone made a post directed right at me with what they wanted to comment. I love LJ drama! I love reading http://www.ljdrama.org

Oh, so do I. Although I went off if for a while when they were just reporting killer after killer, but took a peek and it appears to be happy LJ Drama again!

The way I see it personally, (having dealt with 2 or 3 since having my lj), is "Attention Seekers", and as another commenter said, "drama queens/kings.

Some people wants us to tell them we love them very often...

Gee, why they just don't delete the person(s)? quietly, without creating all this fuss? (oh yea, i forgot, they want Attention!)

When it happens that I stumble upon that kind of post from a person in my f-list; I ignore it. And then I am gladly been deleted! :D

...and from your last sentence... I think many people act in their real life as in their lj because I know one, she is the same in person).

Let's suppose I want to cut a couple or single person, I do this quietly and without creating a cinemaware public post.

Ahh these attention seekers!

Ps: changing subject; we are about to have a beautiful 25 cm. of snow tonight; I gather you are in for a treat too, being so close?

I get tired of that. It's like, either you want me on your list or not. if you want to drop me, zip me an email letting me know, so i can remove you (I don't look at my User Info page every day). I find a lot of people do that merely for attention, and I hate attention whores.

"Deck the halls with lots of Drama, lalalala la"

Yes, it is going around, and it is very childish to say the least.
Get it over with, make your cuts, and be done with it.
Sheesh.

Drama llama drama llama drama llama

That does sound neat.

This month has been bizarre for dramatic cuts, re-adds to smaller more "intimate" journals, and all kinds of craziness. Part of me wants to write it off as "wtf?" and another part of me wants to drop the drama makers just to make ignoring them easier :)

Wheeee! Well said, although I've been a victim of people whining when I drop them withouth giving a warning. Hence, at times, I rely on asking such questions as validation for dumping people . Meh.

I noticed a lot of defriending going on, too. I am not one to make a defriending post. It's almost a sure fire way of creating drama.
