I am going to change the way I use LJ and keep it just for closer friends and contacts and hopefully more thoughtful writing. If you are someone I know in real life, but not well - e.g. a Patsy person I just chat to a bit in the pub occasionally or someone I met peripherally a while ago but we don't really communicate much online or elsewhere I have taken you off my LJ friendslist. I have also dropped another load of twitterers. I've dropped my f-list by about 40 people, many of whom are on FB for social chitchat purposes.
I am notoriously open about my life on LJ, much more so than I am in person and over the last few years I have found that openness extremely cathartic, but I have changed, and want, perhaps somewhat belatedly, to reclaim some of my privacy. Toodle pip.
