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.

If you're the person who came up after the religion and SF panel at Ad Astra (the one in which Connie Willis was the Guest of Honour) then yes, I do remember you -- but if you're not that person, ummm, I'll just be embarrassed now <rueful g>. I do embarrassment fairly well, having become somewhat experienced with it. Not that I'd like it to be the thing for which I'm remembered when all is said and done <g>.

Welcome aboard!

Yes, that was me. Same Naomi. I think that was one of the first conventions I'd been to, and so I was *extra* tongue tied.

One of my newer editors wasn't aware that Michelle West and Michelle Sagara were the same person, either. I tend to forget that it's not obvious because it's obvious. I had a lot of fun at that convention, and if it helps, you seemed in no way awkward or tongue-tied; you didn't babble (the first time I tried to speak to Robin McKinley, the switch that shuts down the brain fired, but the switch that should also shut down the mouth failed catastrophically. Luckily, she didn't seem to mind <wry g>.

ETA: "because it's obvious to me". Even when I use preview, I miss things. Gah.
