Am always surprised by what a low opinion even long-time Facebook friends express about me when they leave. The insults are always the same: they think me “autocratic, argumentative, driven by the need to always be right” & a fool for flattery who cultivates a fan club. Wish I could show them all the hate mail I receive & all the other forms of aggression.

No one should feel hostage to my FB friendship. I have a public wall & anyone can read my posts & fume over what a rotter I am without the encumbrance of pleasantries.

From my point of view, another one bites the dust. My personality should never be the story & if it gets in your way, by all means dump me. But try to be more gracious when you go.
