Can Friends Be Spam?

Well, that's the question I've been asking myself...

Not as in friends 'spamming' their journals. I have friends who spam that I adore! Truly.

But they actually are friends. In every sense of the word. (Cyber friends, or no.)

But I was just added by two people I don't know at all.

Now normally I'd add back in a heartbeat. Those of you who know me know that I'm friendly and love interacting with others. (I have quite a 'rep' for being outgoing and friendly in RL as I just love people--for the most part. I'm very social...)

But both people have more than 700 friends! Now why in heavens name would anyone want more than 700 friends at LJ? How could you possibly begin to read and keep track of your friends?

I'm sporadic online at best (again, as most of you know). And during 'season' I can disappear entirely.

I don't know that I buy the reasoning that this behavior is age-related, by the way. I've known people of all ages who were active at LJ. Some remain constant and others come and go. Age doesn't really seem to play a part...

Anyway, I'm reluctant in this instance to add back. I think I'll keep an eye on the two users in question and see what happens...

My theory anyway is that with more than 700 friends I'd never be missed... LMAO. (No kidding.)

Well, that's it for now. Off to play with the communities for a bit...
