First, a new fan:

Relationship Change
sent by Slashdot Message System on Saturday August 18, @12:05AM

unitron (5733) has made you their friend.

What was interesting about this, though, was that I received a message about them adding me to their friends list before I received a message about the comment they posted to my journal entry. I then looked through their comments, and found a message they wrote, before being told of that same message.

Apparently, some messages are sent closer to the time of the event?

    Some just take longer to get here.

    And I don't remember if I commented first or friended (fanned?) first.

    But the friending was in response to

    http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=3044337&cid=40982497 [slashdot.org]

    where you disagreed without being disagreeable about it.

    • And I don't remember if I commented first or friended (fanned?) first.

      I had considered that possibility as well... I can't really say for sure in which order the events happened.

      I don't mean to be disagreeable about being disagreeable but I would suspect some would say I was being disagreeable. Personally, I agree with your analysis of my not being disagreeable. :)

        If I understood any of that, I'm sure I'd be the first to disagree.

The absent ones are always at fault.
