here's the thing, kiddos. there are people on facebook and twitter i may not care for. or worse, just be completely apathetic to.
but i'm never going to defriend them.
because in the IRL analogy, it's the equivalent of "i don't know you/you are a stranger/i've lost touch with you, but i'm not going to smile and ask how you've been."
if i knew you at one point, i'm not going to denounce your online presence. it may disappear or lounge about in squalor for the rest of internet eternity. but when or if i come across your mind one day (and maybe i will), and you want to write on my wall or see how i'm doing, you damn well can. you're not gonna click my name to find that i do not want to be friends anymore. you didn't do anything to deserve an actual severance of ties. sometimes shit just happens and friendships fade.
I WILL BE FRIENDS WITH ANYONE, IF THEY WANT TO BE FRIENDS WITH ME.
and that applies to apathy too.
jesus christ. if you don't care about someone on your friends list, just leave them there. like you've been leaving them there since the dawn of (facebook)time. DON'T BE A BITCH.
this has been a public service announcement. please continue on your way now.
