How many people have you deleted as friends. I have deleted a few. I have over 102 friends, some of them don't even give discussions at all. so those are the ones I'm taking off my list.They want you to answer all their questions but won't answer yours, so I just decided I will be delecting some friends. How about you how do you feel about the friends you have on your list. some people have over 200 t0 300 friends, I really think that's too much. Everyone have a nice day!

Please Marcie Please, don't take me off your list. LOL I know you won't. I have a bunch of friends too. Some of them are probabaly not even here on mylot anymore. I just haven't had the time to go thru and delete some of them. Thats on my list of things to do.

I have some people I do not like much so I have turned them to notify off, especially the people who want to be my friend just so I will answer theirs but although I don't post many discussions never answer any of mine or reply to my comments. I think it is rude to ask to ba someones friend and them completely ignor them. I have one pending how and neither of us has ever been in the other persons discussions - why ask to be my friend?

i have a hard time thinking of discussions to start, so i try to answer alot more then i post. and the ones that i do start myself, i do not expect all my friends to answer them, just as i hope they do not expect me to answer all of theirs, because there are sometimes that i do not have anything useful to contribute to their discussions.

Yes some times you get these discussions and you don't know nothing about them. or don't have any comments to make. I just pass over them. when I start a discussion sometimes I will watch the news and start a discussion, or if someone make me mad on mylot. I will take there negative comment and make a possitive comment out of it. Just say what comes to your mind.

I agree to what missyd79 has pointed out here. There might be many situations where your friends dont have any idea about the topic at all. In such cases we cant expect them to reply to your discussions.

Yes sometimes people have a discussion and you don't know how to reply. because you know nothing about it.

I have never deleated friends, but I do not have that many. I see where you are coming from though. What is the point of having them there if they do not answer your questions, or they have no questions to answer.

That is quite a bit of friends. this one friend tells me she has over 300 friends and she has other web sites that she visit. If she's that busy, she should get rid of some of her friends. she post discussions but don't answer yours. a lot of people are like that here.

I only delete people who start spamming me with referral links. I don't have that many friends but I don't really care who is posting or not posting or whatever. Before I accept a friend I always check their profile to see if they are putting forth quality posts and not just spamming the site.

what do you mean spamming like giving money making sites? I don't see anything wrong with that if that's what you mean.

I didn't finish my thought or your question. I also mean if all they do is ask questions like, "What is your favorite color?" and nothing with any depth. They write these questions only to make a quick cent, not because they want to start a good discussion.

I never knew if we should delete friends. I get valuable posts to reply for, from my friends, so I keep them always, may be I am just a beginner. I have only around 20 friends, maybe as the figure goes up, I might also follow your foot steps.

If you are here long enough you will see what I talking about but I think 100 friends is enough, really that too much.

I do not and will not delete any friends, the more the better. I check their discussions, respond to them amd they come back to my discussions and respond to mine, and that will make more traffic between us. The more traffic the better.

sometimes. but you have to keep up if you have a lot of them. I was mad one day when I posted this discussion, I am not going to delete any body buy the ones that don't participate. some of them oare not active at all. they might have left.

hi there... i got few friends, and i dont intend to delete them, its fine if they could'nt respond to all of my discussions.. but when i have enough time, i make sure that i gave some of my thoughts to everyone's interesting topics of course... but i guess when the time comes that they're just too much. i would have the thought of deleting some. just some i think that i havent thought they existed at all on my list. hhaha thanks a lot, happy earnings^_^

I personally don't have time to answer all of the discussions my friends post. As much as I love to keep in contact with many of my friends here, I HONESTLY don't have the time. "Friends" seems to be a misnomer, as it's hard to get to know everyone. However, I have gotten to know several of my "friends" here and their individual personalities. I can honestly say that I would like to know them as other than cyber-friends. In closing, I would like to say "thank you" for posting responses to my discussions and apologize to you for not previously posting to yours! You're a great lady and I'm glad to have you on MY friends list. Please don't delete me!!

Well, It depends on how much have you responded,right?? Do you always respond to your friends discussions? Then you may be right. But else, I think that it is not good. Besides,they may not have noticed,or would be busy,or any other reason. Never give up on your friends. This is what I have to say.

Well maybe your right. but once you get to know some of them, you really don't have that much in common. or they might say something you don't like in the discussion. that's like everyday life you chose who you want to be your friend.

Well, I know personally, I have a lot of friends. I have people from all over, and some of them have been on my friends list from day 1 almost. I do go in and go thru my friends list from time to time as I am sure a lot of others on here do. I am constantly removing people from there, but most of the ones I remove, are people who have not done anything in here for a couple of weeks, so they will probably not be back so why keep them as a Friend?
