As I have been deleted by several friends lately (and I have no idea why), I'm curious....what are some reasons you would toss someone off your friend list?
It's ok if the answers are petty.

    A month or more of inactivity. Too racy of pictures or talk, since my wife is one of my MFP friends and would see it.

    You know how you can chat with a person online, get on great, then meet them in person and it just fizzles or they are not at all what they comes across as? Sometimes it's like that when adding someone to your FL. Sometimes it's nothing more than you just aren't each others cup of tea. Also there are those who have this energy that just sucks the life out of you. Another reason is the person has been on a diet for a decade, eats nothing but junk, never exercises, has no consistency but constantly complains about never being able to lose weight. It gets old after a while, listening to the constant complaining. Oh a good one is failed MFP romances.

    Then there are the ones who subscribe to the MFP gossip column and delete you versus outright asking for the truth or just not getting involved in the gossip in the first place. Admittedly, I have subscribed before as well as have been a victim of that one. These days I try to stay out of the dramas and gossip.

    Finally there is always the possibility that it has nothing to do with you at all. Sometimes, people just check out.

    ETA: I find it best to have a small well rounded FL with people that I have some shared interest and connection with.

    1. Excessively flirtatious.
    2. Hump day underwear pics.
    3. Missing for several months.
    4. Political and/or religious rants.
    5. Prettier than me.

    Gawd, you are going to delete me any day now.

    Delete? Most of my friends just stop logging into MFP one day and never come back...

    I delete people who:

    1) Add me and don't even bother to introduce themselves or interact.
    2) Post about religion and/or politics constantly.
    3) Make weird suggestive comments and/or send creepy messages.
    4) Are inactive for ages.

    I never feel the need to clean up the friends list over inactivity or annoyingly announce im about to. When i see people do that, then i may consider deleting them....;)

    I look at it this way, if someine is inactive, whats the big deal? Its not like their spot on the list blocks a spot for someone else to be a friend. And not posting anything means its impossible for them to be offensive ;). Half of my friends list doesnt post a damn thing and i havent interacted with them as long as i can remember.....its as if they are already deleted. No big deal.....

    The only reasons I delete people here or elsewhere are:
    • You haven't logged in in over a month
    • You post nothing but religious/political B.S.
    • You're actually a racist/sexist PoS.
    • You made me really, really angry (which is pretty hard to do).
    • FB Specific: You don't make any effort to contact or talk to me, despite my keeping up my end and trying to reach out to you (have deleted many people because of this). Kinda a harsh way to realize someone isn't really a friend and they don't give a *kitten* about you, but it is what it is.

    This.

    ...... although, for me, #5 pretty much goes without saying.

    Inactive, political, overly religious, xenophobic, or racists.
