Do you ever feel like deleting one of the people on your friends list, just because their discussions make it hard to find other discussions in the "discussions my friends started section" I dont mean just because thay have a lot of discussions, but because they are all a lot of discussions that you arent interested in Is it okay to do this?, Or am i just being rude?

I don't generally like to delete friends for any reason, but if they have consistantly had discussions I'm not interested in them, I might delete them just to get those discussions out of the way of finding ones I do want to respond to. I feel bad when I do it though. I think of some of my friends and wonder... would they do that to me? But really I've only had this situation with people who friended me for no reason that I can tell, ones I didn't talk to more than maybe once or twice.

Oh so you dont mind, Ok....*delete*, No just kidding, but normally i try to see what the interest of the person are before i befriend them, but its as you say it always seems to be the ones that you cant quite remember why you accepted them, As of feeling bad, i hate to say this but i dont feel bad about stuff like that, not because im heartless or anything but because i have a head on me like a sieve, and will normally have forgotten by the next day

Haha! Well, unless it was someone I had talked to a lot, I probably wouldn't remember for too long either. I know I have deleted a few people in the past, but they've all been people that kind of friended me out of the blue, and I never really talked to them.

I've been thinking the same thing. I went my list of "discussions friends started" and had to wade through two full pages by one friend before I found a few from other friends. The third page was about half from one friend and then the fourth page only had 2 or 3. My computer is somewhat slow so it takes too much time to go through 3 pages just to find something I'm interested in. I haven't deleted this person yet because I feel guilty about it but I'm seriously considering it. I decided to give them until the end of tonight to see if they've slowed down any or are at least starting things I'm interested in.

I think it's ok, and not at all rude. you should get to choose who is your friend, and who is not.

Yes, I have to admit that I have done that for that very reason. I mean, if the person starts a lot of discussions that I like, then I don't mind. But, there have been a couple of friends in the past that did nothing but post jokes or spam relating to other websites. There was one lady that must have had at least two pages of new discussions every time I looked under discussions my friends started. But, also, I don't do this very often. It has to be someone that goes way overboard.
