Slimming

I sat down and did the first purge of my friends list since I started SL. I don't have an accurate count of how many people I removed. Hundreds. A few hundred.

Some are people I haven't seen in a long time. Some are people I don't have a lot in common with, or just haven't been in touch with. Some of you - nothing personal. The list was just too damn large to find anyone in.

Why? More demands on my time, and a weariness with more than a share of being taken for-granted. Just because you got removed from the list doesn't mean you did. Conversely, if you're one of the few still there, it doesn't mean you haven't.

That might sound a little arbitrary - and in some cases it most certainly is - but life's complicated.

More complicated than you know.

  1. I actually heard about this from Akela last night, as he was trimming his own Friends List, inspired by your example.

    I worked through my Friends List at the same time, cutting out anyone I couldn't remember the significance of. (Usually, I don't add people myself, but, if someone adds me, I'll accept.) Now, at least, I can look at my Friends List and know why every name is on it.

  2. I hope I wasn't removed! *starts sniffling just in case*

  3. I desperately need a good friends list trimming... but I never know whom to trim! I am horrible at remembering names.
