What has gone around, again comes around

Who would have thought a year can go by so quickly??
Last year I was in dot co dot il for pesach. It was rad. That was when David stole my title.
I commented that every Tom, Dick and Harry had this insatiable need to mention blogs at 5 minute intervals. This year, it was Facebook.

Now, the only reason I got on that thing was to see what it's all about. I'm already tired. It's just some other task I have to do every day and I can't be bothered. The worst part is I have to reject and ignore those people who request to be my friend on facebook. These are people I haven't spoken to in a while or even remotely know. If I haven't spoken to you in a while, the only people who slip through in that category are those who live overseas, and were born there. If you just moved there, from Sydney AND I haven't spoken to you in a while you don't make the cut.

The whole point is, it lets your friends know what you're up to, where you're at. If you have these bunch of half-nelsons on your facebook, what's the point in letting them know what you're up to? That's why I'm not friends with you, I don't want you to know, and I never have.

Yes- I take my facebook seriously. It isn't a contest, it's a social server.

Then there is the other problem of "limited profile". If I decide to be nice and let you in, but only give you limited access, people can tell. It's worse than total rejection. A friend recently discovered they were "limited" on a few facebooks. Not a happy discovery.

I am dealing with this problem of irritation. I joined a group on facebook - "I have rejected someone who I dont want to add as a friend". Apparently they don't know when you reject them. A good thing. Although that person who I keep rejecting and they keep requesting obviously hasn't worked out when things are no longer 'pending' and they need to keep 'requesting', it isn't a good sign.

Note- pending 8 requests. You will never be accepted...
