Friends Cut  
Insert cliche about new beginnings here. I just did a friends cut, and if you were cut, no malice was intended. I cut people who literally had only commented on my journal four or fewer times in the past year. It was very mathematical. I consider lack of comments an (admittedly imperfect) proxy for lack of interest. If you still have an interest in reading my entries, just comment and I'd be very happy to add you back.

*Bites lip* Would you add me back, please? I feel like I only just added you recently, and I'm sorry that I haven't been commenting... ♥

Sure! I just thought maybe you weren't interested!

I'm very glad I was kept. I may not comment as often as I would like (LJ had a habit of not working on the main browser I use, and I was absent from the whole thing for several months at a time), but I do have an interest, and I definitely do make sure to check your journal every time I'm on LJ.

I am definitely still interested - even if I rarely have anything to say!

Added back!

I'm glad you kept me around because I always read!
Bloody Jack Flint: Belle Hushrhye on January 1st, 2013 08:39 pm (UTC)
Yay!

Well, I do read, I just don't have much to add, often. That said, I don't want to be added back just because I asked - so unless you're interested in me and my LJ, I guess I'll see you around?
Bloody Jack Flint: Belle Reading Hushrhye on January 1st, 2013 08:43 pm (UTC)
I definitely am not asking people to ask, I just am asking the people who don't comment to confirm whether or not they read before I add them back. There are tons of legitimate reasons for people not to comment, which is why I said above that lack of comments doesn't necessarily mean lack of interest, but can't think of any other way to judge who is scrolling past my entries because if I ask who is scrolling past the people scrolling past will scroll past that too XD I'll add you back.

I'm sorry you place a number value on friendship. I read everything on my flist but I'm really bad about commenting. If you don't want me on your friends list anymore, that's your decision to make. I hope everything goes well for you, Andy and David.
Bloody Jack Flint: Birds Hushrhye on January 1st, 2013 08:56 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry you feel that way but here ("you place a number value on friendship") I definitely feel like you are putting words in my mouth. I didn't cut you from the other social networking sites where I have you friended, and I definitely don't want you to think I don't value you as a friend. I cut Andy and my very best real-life friend as well. They both stopped using their LJs. A lot of people have been moving to Tumblr and Dreamwidth-- both of which I have and many of the people I have cut from here are people I have added elsewhere. If you are planning to continue using your LJ, I'd be happy to add you back.

I also don't think the specific number cut-off I chose matters; the idea is that you have not really spoken to me in a year. If a better way to continue our friendship exists somewhere besides LJ, let's do that. I have accounts on basically every site because there are friends who prefer to keep in touch via each site. If LJ is the way to do it, let's do that. I want to continue our friendship, but I can't do it on my own. I'm happy to add you back and I will do so now, but being LJ friends should not really be confused with continuing a friendship.

Awh, if you want, you can add me back. I hope you do, since I only added you recently, but if not, I'll be cool with that too!
Bloody Jack Flint: Bond Blue Hushrhye on January 1st, 2013 08:58 pm (UTC)
Adding back! I was hoping you were still interested in being friends!

And... LJ at my comment.

Anyway thanks for not nixing me. I've been terrible about commenting at LJ at all and that has more to do with my lack of time on the internet and not my lack of interest in people.
So thanks! I'll try to comment more this year, promise. I hope. :x

You were not so bad at commenting! My standards for the cut were pretty forgiving anyway.

If you'd still like to add me back, I was and am still interested! I read more than I comment, admittedly.

Adding!

Whoo! Made the cut! I've been a little quiet around here lately, sorry for that.
Bloody Jack Flint: Broccoli Hushrhye on January 1st, 2013 09:00 pm (UTC)
No problem! Everyone's entitled to a little quiet.

Aw, thank you for keeping me! ♥ I promise not to suck at commenting anymore! :P
Bloody Jack Flint: Camp Half-Bloodrhye on January 1st, 2013 09:01 pm (UTC)
You didn't suck! So many people are so convinced they were terrible! LJ would only let me screencap so only the top commenter got posted.

I try to comment on my friend's posts if it's something that I have to add to them.
Bloody Jack Flint: Bella Volleyball Hushrhye on January 3rd, 2013 03:21 am (UTC)
You weren't previously friended on here. I don't think you and I have ever spoken before?
