I'm really hoping there won't be any actual bloodshed, but I may have picked a big ass fight.
I purged my facebook friends list.
I personally don't really see the big deal, I mean, I got a little upset when my bitchy ass cousin, Mia, added me (and I agonized over whether or not to accept, because I can't stand her, and I didn't want to start a big ol facebook fight, but Mom had added her so I had to - and then I watched everything I posted for months looking for any double meanings - because she sees them in everything I do or say), and then a month later de-friended me. But I was just mad that she friended me when she hates me just so that she could what?? Spy on me, rip my heart out when she de-friended me?? I didn't get it, so I was annoyed.
wow, I just re-read that, and it's a little crazy, but that's ok. Ya'll know me.
Anyway, I don't see the big deal. But I know some people do and I really don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
Mostly I did it because I had already "Tiered" my friends so that I could control who sees what, and those who didn't make the top 2 tiers weren't seeing any of my posts, or my wall, anyway.
And I had some kids from the church on my list, and really I post some seriously inappropriate stuff sometimes, and what if my privacy settings go all wonky and they get to see that stuff somehow?? Not good.
The only people I left were people who I regularly interact with, either on facebook or in person, and my family (who are on the very bottom tier, because they really like to pretend like I'm not insane).
But what I'm wondering is - If people get all upset that they were de-friended, what do they do??
a) Call you up with a big WTF?!?!
b) Re-friend you in case it was a mistake.
c) TP your house.
d) Talk shit about you to everyone they know.
e) None of the above - they don't care, because I was just boosting the number on their friends list.
I vote for E, but if I can't have that, I pick C, because then at least I don't have to deal with it. I think that might make me a coward, but I really don't care.
