"Why was I unfriended? I thought we had something, man!"
We might have, but I simply need my space sometimes, especially during my more tired/busy times. Due to the way Steam is, I can't exactly keep the space and also play my games. Simply signing out of friendlist doesn't remedy everything. I hope there's no hard feelings; I intend none. I plan to friend everyone back once I'm recovered or otherwise in a better place. In short, don't worry, I'll friend you back when I'm ready.

"Okay, but why the block? The block means there's something personal against me, right?"
No. I'm just using the block list to keep track of everyone I had friended in the easiest way. I also just don't want people attempting to friend me back because they feel they're exempt from my entire concept of "personal space" despite being unfriended. Again, I plan to friend you back, so don't worry.

"But since you blocked me, how can I reach you about X?"
If you're asking this question, you seem to have some sort of reason to disregard the idea of personal space, which I see nothing that I can do about; If there's an emergency, call 911 or whatever your country's emergency number is; I don't know why you'd be asking me about that. If you're going through something bad and need a friend, I likely wouldn't have effectively been there anyway. I'm not as reliably online as I used to. I'm not an energetic 15 year old kid with nothing to do but pass time anymore. I have a life and it's located outside of Steam. Real life comes first. I'm sorry about that, but there's only so many hours in the day and I'm spending most of them just doing other things nowadays, and the time that's here on Steam just wants to be for games.

If you need to post something about a giveaway, please post it in the giveaway group. I have a section exactly for that. (Though I'll need to do something about Steam not giving me notifications about blocked people, that's something I can deal with. That said, it may simply be time to look at another giveaway group.)

I don't see any other possible reason why something would be so urgent and would need to message me. If you really, really, really want to tell me something that badly, just write it on a memo app on your phone or save it as a .txt file somewhere on your PC. It can wait. Believe me; I've been doing this quite a bit myself. If you forget about it being written down by the time I friend you again, then it's likely not important.

"How come you've never done this before? I've never known you to do this."
I have, it was just a long time ago when I would unfriend people (and friend back) when I'd need to. I stopped doing that for a very long time to try to avoid these questions or offending others, but it really took a toll on my sanity. It's time I do this again and actually give myself the proper space and give me a more healthy recovering rather than just signing out of Steam friendlist.

"Any ETA?"
No.

"This is so stupid/You're taking friendlist and/or online stuff way too seriously/You're narcissistic if you think anyone would ask these questions to you"
Maybe it's indeed stupid or maybe I'm indeed taking online stuff too seriously. But this is what I do believe I should have done to begin with, and I just want any potential question to be answered. If you hate it that much, you're free to decline my friend invite. I highly doubt this is the last time this'll be done; this is simply how I work.

"My question's not on this list. So I'm going to try to circumvent the block by doing X and ask that way.
Just let me have my rest, please.

Indeed, I moved all comments forward

Heh, it's like we're back in 2016. Less than 1,000 comments, everything saying 2016 in time.

Some things about 2016 I do miss, despite what I see now as... quite cringy. However, we must move forward!

-rep Didn't specify that the chicken and the pork fried rice were separate, and just now saw that.

+rep sold me chicken and pork fried rice at unreasonable prices, but it's okay: it was amazing
L7vanmatre Jul 28, 2016 @ 9:15pm 
Yes we would.

I'm a weeb?!? My life is complete! :"D
