I have finally broken down and removed a few LJFriends completely and, at the same time, moved a few others from the Default View friends group that I read every day to the "other" group that I occasionally scan. If you can see this post (linky), you are in the Default View group. If you can't then you are not. I apologise if anyone gets hurt by this but I am having difficulty keeping up with you all and some recent drama on my FL means that I am trying to tighten up the list because it had got very bloated recently. It is nothing personal - I just don't have the spoons/energy needed to read my whole FL every day!
