I'm having a spring (?) clean of my journal and have pruned my friends list substantially. I think I've mostly removed people who either never update (or filter me out of all their updates), or people who I friended via common communities or mutual friends but we don't seem to have ended up with anything beyond an aquaintanceship (i.e. we pretty much don't comment on each others posts).

I have been reading everything and I am still more than happy to re-friend anyone who was sufficiently riveted by what I wrote; just shout and it will be done.

Similarly if anyone feels the need to de-friend me, no hard feelings either way!
I don't think this has affected me, but just wanted to say for the record that I'm always paying attention, at least, when I have time to catch up I am, but I don't always say anything. If I'm quiet in the future please poke me before ditching me ;)
