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.

Coming in late -- periodically I remind people in my lj that I don't friend them becuase I don't like them, I don't friend them because lj is a timesink and I have a Life. And a job. And two books due. Most folk seem to understand. They friend me because I amuse them for the most point. I can live with that. ;-)

And there are a bunch of people (like yourself) whom I haven't friended but check in on when I have the chance.

I tend to keep my friending list to those whom I actually interact with on a regular basis (the name of my friends list is 'cheat sheet for a social life" for a reason!)
