Have you ever dodged someone you don't want to talk to? It's relatively easy to mute someone in SL, but sometimes there is more than a WiFi (fleeting) connection and one develops a friendship type of relationship, so real life numbers and emails are exchanged...you know the drill. I haven't spent much time inworld, and sometimes I do have the time, but I don't have the desire to chat. My real friends know this and leave me alone with my nerdy blogging ways, but some, in particular, try and make me feel bad.
Don't. Please? Lol. Okay, drama over! However, I really do mean it. That time has passed.
