The passive aggressive tango

You know what sucks?

People showing their displeasure with you by removing you from their various online social networks.

You know what else sucks?

People _assuming_ you're angry with them when you do that. But the whole "adjust my online input" to deal with new social realities thing is sucky anyway. I hate reading about all of the stuff people who don't talk to me are doing, it does my head in when I know they wouldn't talk to me if I were standing right in front of them. That's how I stopped being friends with someone I adored, I took her of my flist and she decided I was trying to be dramatic. I was just trying to stop being hurt. But it was an important lesson of some sort.

You know what else sucks?

People who, rather than having a conversation of some sort, tell you you're okay by adding you on social networks. And then you're supposed to notice. It's shockingly passive aggressive.

In short: looking at stuff like that all of the time on all of the places where one has social networks is guaranteed to make you/me batshit crazy, and I try to avoid doing it more than once a year. I think it's been about two years since I last looked hard trying to figure out who had come and gone, and that "never again" would be just about the right frequency for me.
