I thought I'd better do a proper "Friends Only" banner message to explain my Friends policy.

If I don't know you, either from conversing regularly on other people's LJs or in real life, it's highly unlikely I will add you back.  Nothing personal, and if I don't add you back you shouldn't be offended. I know that some people get anxious about such things. Don't be, as this is LJ and not real life. I'm not into having a huge FL for its own sake, and I hate having to faff about with filters etc hence why I'm a bit stringent.  In any case, I tend to live on other people's LJs a lot more than mine anyway.  If you wish to add me even after that slightly snippy sounding paragraph, please ask me first. I'll either say yes or ignore it, either way you'll know!

For those to whom I say "come on in, darling, the water's lovely", a few notes:

We are not at home to Drama.

Anyone using txt spk (unless in an ironic sense) gets culled instantly.

Worship and offerings of gin and chocolate are welcomed, and indeed encouraged, but are not essential.

If someone decides to friend you, there is nothing much you can do about it - though they won't get much out of it on a FO journal. You can ban them from commenting, though.

Oh I know - it's more an issue of politeness. If they don't ask me first, or at the very least comment to say that they have added me, I'm less likely to look favourably upon them as potential f-list members. As I said above - I can always ignore it.

I don't need to ban anyone from commenting because no-one's been that awful (at least not yet). I used to do housekeeping on my last visible post every few months to clean out "Can I friend you?" type comments, and shall continue to do so on here.
