IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE FREAKS WHO JUST FRIEND EVERYONE EVER ASSOCIATED WITH LJ, DON'T EVEN BOTHER. I DON'T WORK THERE ANYMORE AND I CAN NOT ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.
I will block all users who friend me without knowing me. I am not here to make new friends. I am here to keep in touch with the friends I already have, and selectively add to that list as I make friends IRL. So there you go. Amscray!
If I know you IRL, yay! Go ahead and friend me, then let me know who you are (unless you have an easy-to-guess username) so I can friend you back.
