Why I Removed You As A StumbleUpon-Friend

Author: Gab Goldenberg

1) You “send” me stuff too frequently. That little red number indicating things friends have shared on SU feels compelling – and if you’re compelling me to pay attention too frequently, it feels abusive and/or needy. Go away.

2) You send me a) junk or b) untargeted non-junk or worst of all c) untargeted junk. Fortunately for you, I’m going to keep it simple so it’s easy to understand: I’ll remove you in all of the above situations. Clear, huh?

Friends don’t annoy friends.

  2. Ben, you've nothing to worry about. I'm happy to accept. This was more directed at people who don't understand netiquette. Your efforts at commenting clearly show you do.
