Oh come one, Michael. Way too much drama here over trivia. This is nothing. Some nobody bails - Big frickin deal.
You know, the CIA 'friends' people. They reckon it's a good way to round out stuff on people. One of the basis for this is a reckoning that people are needy, have to cast this net of friends, real or not/virtual or not, whatever - That sort of stuff to dreary to get into and articulate correctly.
They're probably right - I know it starts early - In school, it's often a popularity contest. In other places, for example, the norm is quite different. I've lived in places where it takes years of acquaintance to get a 'friendship' to the point where it's somewhat formally recognized as such in a little ritual 'friendship' ceremony ( toast, drink, etc ). Friendship is a little more serious business elsewhere.
Anyway, aside from that rambling, whatever, the fact of the matter is that this is a busy time of year. There's the holidays, etc, to ready for, as well as making a living.
This unnecessary drama is a waste of time, making such big deals of insignificant stuff. What a joke. There's better things to do. Time on junk like that is time wasted.
This is a great time of year. Aim to enjoy it.
And besides, this aint family and friends. You guys can think that - It's your life, you're free men. This is just a URL - There's been some good times here, but it's just the internet, where occasionally strangers come together. It aint family. That's just ridiculous.
