I sometimes get friend requests from people I don’t know, but who have mutual friends that indicate they may be readers. Back when I started that Facebook thing, I pretty much friended anyone who friended me, but now I have a pretty strict policy of not friending anyone I don’t know from Adam. I don’t do politics or guns on Facebook (except for, you know, when I actually go shoot). It’s strictly boring personal stuff.
So it’s nothing personal if I don’t friend you. Most of the gunny and bloggy people I’ve friended I’ve met in person, and those that I haven’t I added back before I thought very much about this Facebook thing. I’m very careful now with Facebook, lest our opponents find out where I work, who my coworkers and family are, or discover details of my remodeling plans, and start up whole new themed blogs called “Colors Gun Nuts Can’t Coordinate” and “Landscaping Disasters of Insurrectionists.”
