Topic: Bunches of Buddies - Is that so wrong!?

Kevin: This community is strange. It's described as being for people who have "too many" friends, yet its owner seems to be against people who have large numbers of friends. I guess she wants to round them all up so they can be tarred and feathered

Here's what I think. It doesn't matter how many friends a person has on here. If they talk to you and seem genuine, then they probably are. Don't prejudge them and not add them to your list just because they have a lot of friends. That doesn't mean that they don't want to get to know as many people as they can.

Sure popularity can be a factor and is, but in my experience most people who have very few friends on here, are generally not very outgoing people. They are usually a little insecure about themselves and want to keep their friends list very limited, because they feel vulnerable when they socially interact with people that they don't know. And that's fine. I'm a little that way myself, but a lot of other people on here aren't...cont

Kevin: I tend to talk with people on here that I already know, but I've slowly started talking to some of the people I didn't know...and they all seem very nice. How can the owner of this community in one sense say that users with a lot of friends are fake and be against them, and also say that you can't really get to know anyone on here? Apparently you know them well enough to call them fake and criticize them?

Sue: I want to say thank you first for posting.
Nowhere in this have I said to tar and feather people who have too many friends in their friend list. I know you added a smile after that statement, and it's probably in jest, but I just wanted to clarify that.
I stated an opinion that I do not believe people who have friends lists in exorbitant numbers can truly claim all these people as their friends. It was a general statement, not naming specific people. It was not meant to target or criticize Joe Schmoe or whomever. Yet I have noticed that people have removed themselves from my friends list, which is fine with me. I did not even know them on the level of acquaintances. It has even been brought to my attention that other people within this website are publicly bashing me, which is again all right because they are entitled to their free speech as am I. Cont...

Sue: I just want to say that while I have been reading hateful language in other people's message boards, I have not resorted to that level and have kept my conversation civil.
I started this community to point out something I have noticed. If the description seems overly hostile or critical of others on this website, I apologize for that. I intended for this community to be taken with a grain of salt, and I hoped that the members of this particular community would take this in any direction they chose.
I do not particularly relish people saying that I will be kicked out of this website for expressing my views. My opinion is not meant to portray a hatred or dislike of the website itself. It is just a criticism. I do admit that there can be advantages to utilizing this website. It is possible to meet many people within your university and at other schools more easily than at other websites of the same type. Cont...

Sue: I just think it unnecessary to have so many people on a friends list, and that amused me. I am a bit shocked at the extent people have responded to this in terms of language used and what they wish would happen to me. I know that my opinion was not taken lightly, but I do not think that it warrants such a reaction as that.
