Some people have a friend's only banner. I hopefully will never have one. Instead i'm choosing to have an open doors banner. Why? I figure i don't get into too much drama, and when i do, its direct and with the people in question. I also think it represents what i personally think an LJ is about - sharing -of information, of ideas, maybe even of insecurities. I *do* have protected/friends only posts where the subject material is of a personal nature, or just a little out there,or uploads but the majority of my posts are and will be publicly viewable.My doors are wide open and will be.
There's no strings attached, if you disagree with me, within reason, well, a good healthy discussion never hurt anyone. If its not within reason, well there's ways to deal with it.It'll take something huge to change this policy though.
I'd like to ask of one small thing of anyone who choses to add my LJ to your friends list(which is the point of this page). I don't often check my friend's list management page, and so i never actually know when someone's added me, or removed me, and as such would like you to post below that you have added me, and where i know you from if it isn't obvious, and to let me know by whatever means you feel is best if you remove me, or wish to be removed from my friends list.While i've been bad about it in the past, as long as a journal has been active in recent times and/or i can contact its owner, i'll try to reciprocate this.
