The Mad Filkentist
|Location:||Nashua, New Hampshire, United States|
|Bio:||Quite a variety of things catch my fancy -- weird news items, interesting events related to filk or fandom, bits about music -- and might turn up in posts here. Anything personal will usually be in a friends-only post. I also blog on technology and liberty in The Blog of M'Gath and run a low-volume techie blog, the File Formats Blog. Some of my more interesting books are listed on LibraryThing.|
What IJ calls a "Friends List" is often a sensitive point. I look at it as a subscription aggregator, and a way to keep personal stuff from being read by the whole world. Being on my list, or not, isn't a matter of what I think of you as a person, but of whether I like to read your LJ, am comfortable with letting you read my personal posts, and would like to let you comment on my posts without hassle. People whose posts advocate any form of sweeping government power, either left or right, tend not to stay on my friends list, or to be moved to a view which I rarely read; think of it simply as being cautious about my blood pressure.
