This time around though, I un-friended people who didn't have me friended anymore. I'm only reading an extremely select group of close friends and family with any regularity, anyway.
LJ's new (?) green and blue arrows have made this a far more doable task than it would have been otherwise. ^_^ Hooray LJ!
EDIT: Forgot to mention - if you really wanna stay, comment. This isn't "You are kicked out forever," it's "You didn't have me friended, so I figure you don't care if I have you friended, natch?"
