So uh, yeah. I have been a bit down of late, but I don't generally talk about my stuff much, and am not planning to start today, especially not in the daily section of the forums.

But one thing I have decided to do is reduce the amount of people I am in contact with since, a lot of people is a pretty big source of stress for me as of late.

So yah, I deactivated my facebook account. Tadah, woop, gone. Felt pretty good to do. A big source of social spammage removed. I recommend it, it's like detox in a way.

I am still active on msn messenger sometimes though, which brings me to the point of this post. If you're not on either my msn or skype friends list and want to be, just throw a pm here on the forums and I'll add ya.

Don't worry, Mata. The forums will never go away. I hardly ever post and I'm here every single day. Even if I don't read much. It's one of the main websites I visit constantly.

As for Facebook, I can understand how that would happen. Good on you. I've yet to consider deleting my Facebook, but I prune that sucker with an iron fist. I also hide a bunch of posts and block nearly every application out there. The main thing that's made Facebook tolerable is the Greasemonkey script Facebook fixer. It allows for much more customization. The one thing that I've always said and will always stand by is that if my mother gets a Facebook account, I'm gone.

Mine has one. So does my grandma. blink.gif I cringed when she added me. I like to use Facebook to keep in contact with my sisters and a few cousins, but my grandma seeing all of my status updates = eek!

I refuse to add my mom. She calls me every week. That's plenty of contact.

Witless, don't lie. You deleted your Facebook because I'm onto you being a robot, didn't you? tongue.gif

In seriousness, if it was causing you stress, then I'd say that's a pretty good reason to delete it! I can't see me deleting mine anytime soon. I live on the other side of the world from my family (not to mention a ton of my friends), and vastly different time zones means we're often not online at the same time to chat on MSN. And, well, I'm rubbish at responding to e-mails, so Facebook helps to assuage my guilt about being horrible at keeping in contact with people.

If I could remember the password for my MySpace, I would delete that sucker in a heartbeat, though.

I love you in a way that is mystical and eternal and illegal in 20 states.
