Yet another question...

Is there any way to view the comment threads in a non-threaded, linear fashion? As in, read them in the order, by time & date, in which they were posted? I've read as much of the FAQ as seems relevant, and I can't see a single thing that would allow this -- but I'm hopeful that I'm just a) blind or b) looking in the wrong place.

And another question: I've been looking at some user info pages -- and I'm overwhelmed at the number of people that people 'friend'. Is it just that most people don't post much in their LJs? Because if I had in excess of 100 (and some people have close to 300) friends who -did-, I'd never get anything done. Not even sleep :/.

I'm trying to read the journals of people who have friended -me-, when I can, and am wondering about the etiquette of 'friending' in the LJ community. It is considered rude not to friend people who friend you? (and friend as a verb... <deep sigh>.) Is it considered rude to just friend someone? Any opinions -- even sarcastic, silly ones -- are welcome.

:waves: Hi, I stumbled across your journal and friended you (as you can see :) recently. My personal philosophy on friending (and I warn you - everyone seems to have a different definition!) is that I add a journal if it looks interesting to me - I don't find it rude at all to add or be added without asking. If someone wants to add me, I like it if they drop me a comment so I notice, but I don't get offended if someone adds me without asking. As well, I don't think it's rude not to add someone who adds you. I add people who look interesting. If you don't want to read my life but don't mind if I read yours, why should you feel the need to add me? Getting offended over friending politics just seems silly to me. It's not worth it.

As for having time - I have a large flist and it helps me procrastinate brilliantly. I don't always read all of it, but I do enjoy reading every journal I add.
