So maybe because I don't want seclude myself statistically or not reciprocate someone's attempt to share their journal/life/online friendship with me or just not be an asshole, I usually try to keep these about equal.
Sometimes this means just joining a few communities, but that becomes obvious by simple subtraction.
89 friends of to 90 friends - 16 watched communities = 74 actual friends.
So it appears that I'm dicking over at least 6 people there, but really a fair number of those 74 actual friends are people I found really interesting, but stopped writing sometime last year.
Chances are they won't be picking up the habit again, so it becomes apparent that I list them as a friend just to lower my asshole gauge.
That's what I was talking about before. And lord, I am so fucking tired right now.
