Someone commented that they wished they could be as brave. Was I brave to delete people that didn't want to talk to me? There is nothing to stop them sending a new friend request. If they are wondering why I defriended them there is nothing to stop them messaging me (although as I gave people several days notice and mentioned it several times they had plenty of warning). If they do none of the above then they really weren't worth having on there as friends in the first place were they?
