That whole "friends-of list" vote.

There's a trial of the brand-new Goatvote system going on in lj_biz. Let me explain... no, let me sum up.

Goatvote asks that you not simply vote in a poll, but also include URLs that support your argument. The idea is that Goatvote will sift the cogent arguments to the top by counting the most popular URLs, rather than just being a brainless "click here".

The vote in question is about whether you should be able to control, not whether someone friends you, but whether then then show up on your "friends-of" list.

Here's my argument in favor of option 2 out of the three: http://www.livejournal.com/community/lj_biz/217808.html?thread=4645072#t4645072

and another argument I favor:

If you care, then try out the shiny new Goatvote toy and let's see how it works!

A cogent argument, and I've linked to it via my vote.

Personally, I think they could relieve some of the tension over this whole issue by changing the names of "friends/friend of" to "read/read by," but that's probably too easy.

I'm not sure why the whole "friend of" thing is such a big deal.

Likely story.

I suppose the packets stuttered.

I guess if people want it and it's simple enough to implement, no biggie. But I admit to not really comprehending why people want it. *shrug*

I guess I'm just not popular enough

to have attracted the attention of the serial adders. woe is me.

anyway, you're up to 10 now.

(... though I really wish they would change the "Friends" terminology; it is so misleading...)
