removing...

Maus, my apologies, but I'm removing you from my (misnamed) friends list.
While most of the people whose journals I watch are my friends, and some of my friends are in my watch list, I'm taking maus_merryjest out of my list.

We discussed, some time back, that I find your continual anti-religion screeds, and the anti-christian ones in particular, to be tiresome at best. For a while, you confined them to a different journal, but then they crept rapidly back into your mainstream, and they've become the defining feature of your journal, actually edging out the interesting stuff about your life and music.

So, now, when I want to find out how you're doing, I'll have to go hunting for it instead of seeing it when I open my default journal.

I really wish they'd change the name of that feature to 'watch list'.

it is unfortunate that this is sometimes necessary.

Just remove the offending person from your "Default View" group, and they can still see whatever slightly-private things you have posted to the groups that they belong to.

This particular entry should NOT have been made publicly, incidentally -- you could have easily mailed it to therealmerryjest@netscape.com and not politicized his removal. People add and remove others from their 'friends list' all the time... why did you feel the need to make a public clamor about it?

Probably to remind people that other people read what they post. A back-handed "I like you overall, but sometimes you're an ass, and your ass:info ratio on your own journal has gotten too thick, so that's why I won't be stalking following your latest hijinks. And sometimes, I might need to do this to other people, too."

Yeah, it could have been private, but by posting it publicly, if Maus-whoever still has Foomf in his Friends list, Maus-whoever will (theoretically) see it.

As well as making it a rant about calling it a "friends" list.

I am not always logged in.
When you are not logged in, or when someone else reads your 'friends' list, they do not see your default view. They see the entirety of your friends list.

My reasons for posting rather than mailing are not open to discussion at this time.

Sorry to hear about it. Hey, if you want to see some musical stuff or hear about my vacation to see the fiancee's family in Duluth (forthcoming), you can default-watch my journal if you like. In any case, here's a little something to smile at. It's a pair of Snowths. Because everyone needs a Snowth now and then. :-)

I do default-watch your journal.
