apparently, the public nature of livejournal is not completely understood here at reed either. : (
on one level, i feel bad, on the other...people have got to think about using a public forum, and keeping their friends quiet about it.

that's such bull about keeping friends quiet about having a lj. i read your post about how echo_girl's anger should be directed towards me and not you. however, i know i did not mention that a certain person is a reed student, but i found her journal added to your list. hell, no one exposed ME but *i* was added to your list. you are actively looking for people to add, and i'm guessing looked at my friends list or echo_girl's friends list to find this other girl to add. the point is, you *do* add people without asking. you *do* actively look for more people to add, and would probably have found echo_girl's journal eventually being that she was on my friend's list and obviously a student if you read her journal. i don't dig your passing the blame here. it was purely circumstantial, and you would have added her regardless if i, billy bob, or your own incredible sleuth-like talents told you about echo_girl. your indignant attitude is just silly in light of what happened. perhaps you should make it your policy to ask people whether or not you can add someone to your list. i don't think echo_girl is confused over people stumbling over her journal- that's how i found it, not because she told me. but i *asked* her if i could add her on my friend's list. all you had to do, i think, is ask, which is the polite route.

i understand, and in my admitting my fault, made sure she wasn't on the list, and deleted the other person as well. i'm not being indignant, just matter-of-fact. i admitted i'm wrong, i just know that the secret journal i keep, i only tell certain people about, and i don't let them put it on their friends list. it's just common sense[especially when their friends list is highly read, like evan's].
that's all.

i never implied her anger was unjustified toward me, just that maybe that might be a point to contend with...there's a reason my secret journal isn't on anyone's friends list that i know, and that it mentions nothing which is searchable. it's online, not in a secret book, tucked away. LiveJournal is not for Laura Palmer's secret diary. [Shrug]

runofthemill: brilliant display of the honor principle, there

calling everyone 'stupid' and simply screaming instead of acting mature and intelligent, as ryan did (ryan - i have no qualms against you and i hope you understand my reasons for leaving the reedlj community; it was simply out of disgust toward mz's dismissal of other people, not out of any personal spite or dislike toward you, or the reed community as a whole ... if anyone's seeing this and NOT aware, i am a reedie alum, and if you're into reedies, feel free to read my journal).

'pathetic little bubble,' indeed.

word, yo. i too was annoyed and left the community. i don't have a problem with people reading my journal, but i *do* have a problem with lack of tact. can we not respect that someone was perturbed? and this reedwatcher club is supposed to be a forum to *build* on the feeling of reed community, not tear it down. at least, that's what i'd assume.

Being perturbed is one thing. Saying "I fucking hate Ryan" and accusing him of snooping is different.

littlelamb: Re: brilliant display of the honor principle, there

whether someone said that or not, i don't know. what i do think is that someone should be asked before having his/her journal added to a forum.

holyloki: Re: brilliant display of the honor principle, there

you don't know? She is on your friends list, no? Not to mention you commented on that post. Heh.
You're amusing.

littlelamb: Re: brilliant display of the honor principle, there

she apologised. she said she over-reacted. i think things should have been left at that instead of snide comments about reedies being antisocial, etc. as for not knowing, yeah. her comment went right through me. i don't remember her saying that. and i think i was drunk when i replied to that anyway.

holyloki: Re: brilliant display of the honor principle, there

heheh drunk livejournal is fun : )
Ok, honestly, that wasn't meant to be snide, or insulting. It was a jke, the type of common joke I had the perception that all Reedies made about themselves in jest. That's why I put the smily by it. Like this: seems as if Reedies really are that socially inept. ; )
Chill.
+ I think she apologized after I made that post.

[shrug] Leaving doesn't really help that though...and I think mz is both bringing in a side which should've been obvious from the start, and being somewhat over-the-top on purpose...
however, she is right, whether you like her method or not.

littlelamb: Re: brilliant display of the honor principle, there

for me, leaving is nothing more than withdrawing to show a lack of support on my part. i don't want my name associated with this sort of community. it's become ryan's friends vs. another clique... and it's just silly. as far as being right, that's just a matter of opinion. it is MY opinion that she's not right. that this is a "journal" and the author should be asked before referenced in a larger forum. signing off now, this is silly.

lizzimonster: Re: brilliant display of the honor principle, there

"ryan's friends vs. another clique"? I kept myself out of this on purpose so it wouldn't appear that way. But I can't keep ignoring certain things.

"this is a "journal" and the author should be asked before referenced in a larger forum"
Larger forum? How's Livejournal.com for a larger forum?

holyloki: Re: brilliant display of the honor principle, there

As far as being cliquish, it only got that way because you all attacked me, and made the whole thing an emotional temper tantrum. Emotions bring out the tribal in people.
