This post is stuck up top here for new users to my journal.  Here's my LJ policy:

  1. I don't automatically add people back.  If you friend me and expect an immediate add-back, you're in for a disappointment.  I don't mind if you have me friended, though!  You can even comment!  No skin off my terminal.  And if you leave, no sweat.  I understand.

  2. If you've added or dropped me, and you feel I should reco'nise, you should probably comment instead.  I'm not one for fanfair.

  3. I post a lot.  A Lot™.  I've tried to stop, trust me, but it never works.  All you have to do, if you're still interested, is create a friends group called "Default View" (spelled/cased like that, sans quotation marks), and put all except me in it.  This means that when you go to livejournal.com/~[yourusername]/friends, it'll only show the users in your Default View.  A couple of my in-person friends use this, so I'm hardly gonna get offended.

  4. I have seven active filters: Boston (for local-to-me people), Default View, Sexfilter, NoDadFilter, GeekFilter, KnitFilter, and TrustFilter.  People I friend are automatically added to all sans the first and last, both for obvious reasons.  I suggest that, if you're on my flist, you go here and fill out the filters poll.  Comment if you do, or if you retake it, so that I know.  Same for here.

  5. If you have too many quizzes; if you refuse to consider the possibility that language is used to communicate, not to mangle other people's eyes with; if you only write about your day-to-day existance; if you're too damned negative; if all you are is a bunch of links about randominity that I don't find interesting... chances that I'll add you go down.  I seek a certain level of quality in my friends list, and I make few exceptions.

  6. I moderate [livejournal.com profile] grammargasm and [livejournal.com profile] ljgenie.  Go to those places, too!  (Why not?)

  7. Finally, I don't have truck with drama.  Little bits in your journal, fine.  Large bits in your journal, delete.  Large bits in comments in my journal, ban.  You get the idea.  I'm firmly convinced that if two people approach each other with compassion, intelligence, dignity, and humility, drama cannot happen.  So that.


(Sub-note: if you've tried to comment and you've been banned, chances are I happened across you ages ago, and strongly didn't like you.  Best to move on.)

Think of this as learning to take off your shoes at the doors of friends' houses.  Not important, but good courtesy, nonetheless.

She is a remarkable woman.  She's a lawyer, or so I understand, but I don't hold that against her, honest.  Most often, she writes about things in her life, in a way that is generally bright and cheerful without being aiee god yellow.  Occasionally, she writes incredible posts - thought-provokers, tear-provokers, and thus.

A high recommendation.

Dear Xtina,
my computer at home died, eating all of my email addresses!
So please write to me at denise@blackrockauto.com and hear all about the ass waxing. I am the only woman in my class who is not Vietnamese, and these hot wax fumes are making me giddy.

you forgot one

You forgot to include "don't forget to floss."
Xtina, my home computer died, eating every email address I have. Please write to me with yours at denise@blackrockauto.com.
Ask me about ass waxing. I am the only woman in my class who isn't Vietnamese, and the hot wax fumes are making me woozy.

Oh yeah, I am also retarded

The tip about creating a group called "Default View" will save me many hours of flipping past groups I don't want to read atm in order to find out what my friends are up to. Thank you.

Hiya,

I filled in your Trash Day poll that I saw in my FriendsFriends, then wandered over. I got a huge sense of déjà vu reading your LJ Policy, which probably means I've been here before, so I thought I'd say hello =) =)

i stumbled across you after stumbling across lj-genie and (lotsa stumbling) have been reading you regularly ever since; figured i'd streamline the process and add you. so there you go!

thanks for the uberposting, by the way; my job is Boring and it's nice to have a distraction.

Hey, um, also, I was wondering if you still have your old knifeplay icon? I wanted to show it to someone I know who seems obsessed with knives.

Hey there! I was crawling my friends' friends list, and your latest entry popped up. We have... 2? friends in common, and you come up on my friends' friends list, plus your writing is of nice quality, so I added you :) Figured i'd just let you know... some people are weird about their flists.

I'm sorry to see you defriend me - I like reading what you have to write, etc. My best to you! (My posts with Scampi are often public, if you still like cute kitty pics :))

Ha!  Sure.  :)  I'll even add back, so's you can peruse my k* tags and see my own insanity.

(K* means things like 'kpatterns' or 'kfrogging' or 'kfinished!' or whatever.)
