The social dynamics of LJ and the Internet can be very weird. Sometimes too weird for me!

Re: Re. the LJ deletion
Indeed. Although I'm not sure that 'social dynamics' applies in this case. I think there's a perfectly valid and acceptable reason behind it.
I mean, it's not even as though we were in regular contact... the last time I think I saw this person was in a bar in Sheffield, well over a year ago.
I shouldn't really be upset about it... it's just that I didn't expect to be removed, that's all.
I would still say it's social dynamics of some sort, but I know it can be odd and dissapointing when someone deletes you out of the blue.
Yeah, you definitely need to post more!!
And I was doing so well in February
looks pathetic by comparison!
Well it might be better than my tendency to post if the wind changes!! I need reminding sometimes - quality not quantity!!
Well my wind is of quality and quantity.
Especially after last night's spag bol.
*snorts with laughter*
I can well believe it!!
Well I wasn't about to say anything about March suddenly being February 2: The Sequel...
Hiya! It must be so quiet without the girls.
They're going to get squished stupid when they get home, I can tell you.
I'm sorry, I think the issue in question is my fault. I am going to try and fix it but I don't think that I can, I hate that guards appear to have been put in place as a result of a person that I haven't been in a very long time.
I don't know the details here, but I'm sure it isn't your fault, Fi hon.
Most things are my fault, it's going back a very long time so hopefully I'm wrong :)
Glad Amy liked her little letter :o)
Breakfast Club is FAB!!! I love all the characters, especially Judd Nelson's - he's so funny! And I agree that Ally Sheedy is a stunning woman!
It was so thoughtful. Thank you.
Aww, that's so cute that Sophie send Amy a letter. I think my heart just melted.
Tell me about it... it's possibly one of the sweetest things I've ever seen!
Just to let you know...
When I renamed the journal I had the option of clearing all the friends off. I chose it because there were people on there I'd never met and stainsteelrat's social dynamics issue would have reared its head ending up with me trying to rationalise with those people who perhaps were more friends to me than I ever realised or perhaps wanted to be. So I drew a line under the journal and started again.
I didn't tell anyone about the journal at all for about a week, but decided to let Steph and Tina in on it eventually (after waiting for people to find me!) because they had inspired me to start again.
And to finish - a quote from the first post I made since coming out of the Journal closet:
"So, no offence to any previous friends - it wasn't like you realised anyway! Besides, I have to earn your trust back now to start reading your friends only entries."
Didn't realise it would case a scene :)
It wasn't my intention to cause a scene, but in hindsight maybe I'm just realising (again) that I don't treat my friends and mates very well.
