I know there's not much personal info here about me, and that my prospective friend is a deliberate choice. I do not place any personal information on the internet. While my posts and replies are genuine, I will not voluntarily subject myself to the nightmares other people have experienced after exposing themselves on the net, on/in a supposedly private or semi-private blog/journal.
It is unfortunate, but people will still discriminate against you because of what you believe, your political affiliations, and what you do in your spare time. What you do here online is supposed to be private; but what you write about, and your opinions, can come back to bite you on the rear when you least expect it. So having said that; friend me if you like. I'll probably friend you back, but I do sweeps of my friends list once in a while.
If I don't hear from you for an extended period of time. I'll assume you are not interested in my posts any longer, and remove you from the list. I don't do that to hurt people's feelings. I just prefer to keep an updated flist. I'll try to post a notice prior to removing any names, and if you get removed by mistake, just let me know and I'll fix it pronto:) There will also be no hard feelings on my part if you unfriend me.
