Annual Cull

I've just performed my annual-ish buddy cull! Nothing personal but it seems a bit silly to have contacts who haven't contacted in living memory - and that applies to me as well.

Is this a good topic?:

Spring Cleaning

I do that periodically, and almost every time I get someone popping up to chat who I have just taken off after MONTHS without so much as a "hi" in either direction!

I dont cull

My friends list over the past few years has grown and grown. Some I hear from regularly, some not so often. But all of them remain on the list. As someone of advanced years, I use the list as a sort of aide memoire, when the memory starts to fade a little. I can go down the list and see a name. That evokes a memory of the person, what they were doing etc etc. Its always nice to be able to pick up on a person again as if you had never had time pass. Plus, I have been on the other end, where a contact has been deleted from a buddy list without contact. It leaves me worrying if I had said or done something wrong. So if you are going to delete me, please send me a message telling me that you are just clearing the list and that contact can be resumed if desired.
Thats it, thats my outlook.
Stay happy and naked

Having said that

Ok having said that I dont cull my list, I find that there are a lot on there that I no longer seem to have contact with. I seem to go through phases where I chat to someone daily and then seem to lose track.
To this end, I am going to cull my buddy list. Please do not take offense if you are removed. It is nothing personal, just a tidy up to help an old buffer remember contacts better.

Thought I had hit a nerve there, which was suprising, given your residential location. Lol.
I reiterate to all, its just a clear up operation. I still 'love you all'.

saying hi

I do have a buddy list and occassionaly drop these people a hi. I only cull if I have been offended which I never have here.
I have spoken to many many people and they often say "oh yeah I/we use studland we will come over and say hi". No one ever has, even when in the past 2 years I have had a sand castle flag flying with toadie on it.
love toadie

Is there something wrong here or are people just ignoring me ? I have sent a number of private messages in the last few weeks but get no replies, even from friends on my buddy list.
