Here's the dilemma -- you have lots of people who are "friends" on Facebook or other social networking sites. But they're really not your friends. Perhaps you've not heard from them in awhile. Perhaps you added them as a friend and can't remember why. Or maybe you just don't like them any longer.
What do you do? Cast them aside, right? Sure. I've done it; you likely have, too.
But now it gets tricky -- the no-longer-a-friend finds out about it and attempts to do something about it.
My reaction as I saw this "saga" unfold in the aforementioned news story -- there are a lot of people who need to get a life. If you can't handle being "dumped" in the virtual world, then how do you handle it in the real world? Or are those two worlds too closely linked in your life?
