I'm not real clear on what the dust-up is about, but here's a just-in-case-someone's-upset statement:

1. I have an insane life, and often disappear for long chunks of time. Very often I am here reading/scanning, but unable to respond.
2. I cannot access email or LJ from work, and I sometimes work 14 hours per day, 7 days per week.
3. I very infrequently comment, but always read all of my flist and a good chunk of my foflist when I'm able. If I friended you, it's because I like to read what you have to say, regardless of topic.
4. If I fall behind due to travel or family obligations, I start at the current page and try to work my way back, if it's less than a couple of weeks' worth. More than that, and I'm likely to give up.
5. I almost never comment when 'catching up'. That doesn't mean I don't read or don't care.
6. I am lazy where the internet is concerned. If that bothers you, don't worry about it, just dump me from your flist for having bad manners. I won't get upset!
7. I usually sign in on my info page, so I try to keep tabs on who's friended, etc., but sometimes there are long stretches when I forget to check. It's okay to comment if you think I'm ignoring you -- chances are that's far from the truth (unless you're someone I really don't know, someone who is completely anonymous to me, or someone who doesn't post at least now and then).

OMG you are ignoring me!! *is hurt* *cuts you liek whoa*

Oh, wait. That would be lame. Carry on, then. :) (And for the record, I can be lazy about catching up too.)

LOL!

You made me giggle.

(it's hard to imagine the word "lazy" ever applying to you in any way)

I'm not sure there is a dust up as such. There's simply a 'comment if you read me' meme going around... although I guess the meme has dust-up causing potential, so maybe there has been one I don't know about. ;)

Interesting! I just had a short window of LJ time, and bunches of mentions of it. I figured better safe than sorry, since I know I've got a few souls on my flist who are somewhat sensitive and didn't want hurt feelings.

I'm like that too and I have no RL. I TRY to give feedback to the fic I read otherwise I only comment on the everyday kinds of post if I have something to say or I'm bored [like now].

I'm *so* bad. Mostly I just get overwhelmed -- can read or can comment, but really not both. So I don't comment.

Glad to know there are more of us out there :-)

::sends you cinnamon rolls for those 14 hour days:: Chris, I love you whether you post/comment or NOT. So there.

::more hugs::

Friending/readme!kerfuffle? I missed it, wherever it was being held.

Mmmmmm. Cinnamon rolls. You know, my bathing suit won't fit right if I keep eating this way!

(I'm not sure if there was a thing, or if I just hit LJ at the wrong time -- saw five or six posts in a row about it, and figured better safe than sorry)

*hugs back*

There's actually a "thing"? Like a kerfuffle? How...trite.

Pfft, whatever. *hugs you* Ain't going anywhere :)

Yanno, I'm not sure. I had ten minutes to take a spin at lunchtime today, and I must have seen at least half a dozen references. Figured I'd rather be safe than sorry ;-)

*smooches*

Now that would be super-cool, having a friend with superpowers like that!

Nobody was mean -- I just ran into a big slew of posts about it and thought I'd better make sure no one was offended by my sloth, or at least felt okay about dropping me if they were upset ;-)

Just passing by saying hello, love (and wondering what the post is all about).

Hi to you, too.

The post's about nothing in particular, really. I logged in for my ten minute lunchtime pass through, and about half a dozen people were posting about this issue, so I followed suit since it looked like there were potentially people getting feelings hurt. Better safe than sorry and all that...

Just friended you recently, so, stopping by to say hi! (I wonder if I've done that already. Am getting old. ::blushes::)

Hi!

(I'm old, too)

I'm thinking we know each other from somewhere or other -- your handle immediately struck me as familiar.

It's all good! Your explanation makes me giggle a bit. I totally get it, I totally understand and I have no issue with it. I expect nothing more than you to just check in and say what your up to once in a while. Life happens, LJ is just one of the fun diversions in it. As George Michael once said (am I really quoting his T-shirt???) "Choose Life"

and have fun with it (it can't all be work!)

Just wanted to say I'm thinking about you ... *hugs*. NY has totally fried my brain, and I haven't been keeping up as I should. :(

Still going to DragonCon? Hubby just gave my the greenlight :)

I hope I'm still going to DC! It's going to be right in the middle of moving madness, but I wanna and I have tickets, so hopefully at least some days I'll make it.

Hey! I saw your comment in silentsiren47's journal and was wondering how you were doing, since you've been having a crap time for, like, months.

Gah.

I'm bad. Overwhelmed is still a really good word to describe me right now. But there's light at the end of the tunnel. I'm planning to try to do an update post today, between packing and writing 80 evals.

Thanks for the push, and thanks for caring, too. Fandom's a fabulous thing.

Welcome aboard! There's not a lot of VM'ing or BSG'ing or BtVS'ing here lately, but I can't wait to have time again.
