With HP over and me starting a new job, while single parenting, with buttons both at secondary school, plus finding a new house... too busy... I am going to have a huge flist cut of people I don't know.

Sorry, lurkers, but I want this to be under control.

If you're here for fic, which I'm not sure there'll be much of, in the future, anyway, then there is some way of doing a new post alert on shocfix on InsaneJournal.

I'll leave this unlocked, for people who wonder why I'm not posting, so if anyone gets cut by mistake you can comment and say, 'pfffrt, shocolate, I'm the one you had that long conversation with about Prince Bertil of Sweden!' and I will correct my error...

ETA : I now have 171 people on my flist, yet am still on 754 - this was not in one cut - this is over the last eight years... so if anyone hasn't seen a post from me for ever, and suddenly this unlocked one has popped up - feel free to remove me, and we'll both be tidyer for it.

I really wish livejournal let you view the people you have friended, instead of everyone, because I have lots of journals in my list who I defriended years ago who haven't defriended me, and it irritates me so much!

me too - 500 I have never heard of, on top of the ones I actively defriended!

Being down to only 171 is really impressive though (although I couldn't bear the '1', I'd have to tidy it down to 170 exactly)

there are a couple of people I didn't dare cut...

It's a hassle to set up in the beginning if you have a huge flist but reading on a filter is how i manage my comms/people I'm not longer friends with. It makes it a bit more manageable even though it still frustrates me to know they're there.

I have trouble understanding why. They shouldn't clutter your flist at all. The only place they appear is on your profile page, and if it bothers you, I think you can ask for them to be hidden.

I thought she meant on the add/remove friends thing - I had to go through 21 pages of people, hardly any of whom I have friended... I should be able to remove the others?

It annoys me when I look at my 'manage friends' page, because I'd rather just see people I've chosen to friend, makes things less cluttered and easier to manage.

yup - you can't manage them at all - you can't do anything!

Even a filter by 'green arrows', 'blue arrows' 'mutual' would work better!
