I don't know exactly when I'll be doing this, but it'll likely be sometime this week. Unfriending you does not mean I don't like you or want to hear from you, it's just that my flist has gotten so very big I'm afraid to look at it anymore, so I don't read posts or make comments or even talk to anyone. Shaving my list will put me back in control, hopefully.
I'll also be unsubbing from comms I never read or that are repetitive. I will be making an announcement post after I've finished doing all this stuff. Because people on LJ change their screennames like I change my underwear, I may end up unfriending people who have been on for ages, but who have changed their usernames so I don't recognize them. If I unfriend you and you would like to be added back, please let me know in comments there, and I will add you back.
I really hate doing this, but if I don't I feel like I'll never read LJ again and I love my LJ (and my DW, which I double-post at, although I'm not doing any cutting at DW).
