EDIT, 12/10/2006: It has come to my attention that there are problems with commenting on this entry because of the way I have comments set. This should be fixed now. If you have problems, you can always ask to be added by e-mailing me using the address posted on my user info page.

I hate to do this, but due to the course of recent events in my life, I have decided to go friends-only with my journal. I just need certain people out of my life right now.

To be on my friends list, you may leave a comment here.

You people want me to have "balls?" Here:

Realize that being on my friends' list is a privelege, not a right. If I have taken you off my friends' list, or banned you from commenting, it is for a good reason. Don't whine to me, don't call me immature, but instead think about why I might have taken you off. I control who gets to read my journal, not you, and not anyone else either. If I put you on my friends' list it is because I trust you not to go blabbing the contents of locked entries to people who I don't want to read them, and because I believe you will be a friend to me regardless of whether or not you agree with my actions. Betray that trust, and you're off, no questions asked. Do NOT cry to me to add you back. I may (or may not) add you back when I am DAMN good and ready to do so. That's it.

I'm SO sick of fair-weather friends.

If you disagree with me, fine, that is your right. Let me know your opinion ONCE and then DROP IT. I'm dealing with enough shit in my life right now that I really don't need people who I thought were my friends kicking me while I'm down.

Who I choose to date is my business and no one else's. I got out of a relationship which was not working for me. Okay, I agree that my choices in the past month have not been among the most intelligent I've ever made, but I think it was a good decision to end that relationship. If you disagree, FINE. I don't care. You're not making my decisions for me.

I'm sorry it had to come down to this, though this is the reason I quite enjoyed having no real-life friends on my friends list. That ended shortly after coming to Berkeley, so now I'm ultra-paranoid and filter the fuck out of my entries. So goes life.

Glad I'm still here.

I haven't always agreed with you, but you sure as hell can do whatever the heck you want with your journal! Sorry you have to make it friends only to do that, but that's probably smart.

I would like to be on your friends list, if you'd want me there.

I know we don't know each other and we're kind of just livejournal friends because of our similar interest in GBS, but I really do enjoy reading your journal and I think that since I am such a neutral source, I'm a non-threat as far as blabbing anything.

I haven't weighed in on this whole boy/girlfriend thing because it's none of my business. But for what it's worth, I completely admire and respect your decision to end a relationship that wasn't working for you. Takes some guts to take a risk like that and I commend you for it.

But anyway, I would like to stay on your friends list, if you'll have me:)

Talk to you soon!

Since I know you've denounced my email behind my back as "whining," I will, for the record, post the content here, since this is where it belonged in the first place.

I apologize that something between LJ and my web browser farted out last night, and I apologize that I thought emailing a response to your "To be on my friends list, you may leave a comment here" request would be a sufficient replacement for a testy LJ-Mozilla relationship. Apparantly it was not. But since I'd like to just put things where they belong, I'm posting. You can do whatever you want with it.

This is not a second request for anything. I said I wouldn't wrestle with any decision you made, and I'm not. But I'd like to not be deemed "whining" when I merely responded to your original request. That's not a fair assessment. Thanks.

Subject: comment, since LJ is being uncooperative

(emailing this rather than posting because i've lost the comment twice now to internet ether -- "this document contains no data" my ass.)

"I just need certain people out of my life right now."

i'd guess you would mean me, since you took me off your list. though i'm not sure what transpired between last night when i last peeked at my info page and now, it appears i fall into that category.

i'd like to stay, since i've known you quite some time. i am more inclined to read your entries and am more interested in what you say compared to people i randomly meet and don't know. and besides, should you need an apartment, my access to the princeton list would come in handy. ;)

however, should you opt not to, that *is* your decision, so i'm not going to wrestle with you over it. if that is the case, i'd be respectfully curious as to why because i *have* known you 5+ years so i would hope i deserve that much, but again, that's your decision and i wouldn't wrestle with you over it.

nice to meet you...I am a friend of angelina_zooma's and rabid_wombat's (both of which are in GBS community). It was mine and rabid_wombat's place you called from the concert the other day...and I thought I'd introduce myself...(it's kree by the way) and offer you a place to crash after the Rochester show...a_z may have already but I thought I would re-invite you...perhaps for an afterparty or just to sleep...I hear it may be quite a drive to get back yeah...
add me as a friend if you care's always fun to read journals of people I don't know...hehehe...if not...I'll see you in the GBS community...

Yep. A_Z has already offered and I'm probably going to take her up on the offer. I don't think you can read very much of my journal not being on my friends' list, so if you want I'll put you on.

Hey.. I randomly found your journal, add me?

Hello. I have seen you around a couple communities I belong to and thought I would stop by your page. I think you have excellent insight and opinions on things and was hoping we could add one another as friends.

Also I love this thing youw rote about it being a privelage not a right. I might have to put something like that on my journal.

kumiriko can see pictures of you new house and I'm curious. LJ is the only way I can keep track of how angelina_zooma is doing. Anyway if you don't mind could you add me to you list. If you would rather not I understand.
