Fuckin' Eh! - Jessie T. Wolf — LiveJournal
I hold my breath in wariness every time I sign on to my IM in case there's someone there waiting who I don't want to talk to. I always feel kinda bad about signing off again right away because it's so obvious I'm going into avoidance mode, but I'd rather be doing something useful or talking to a good friend on IM than having nutcases flame me for an hour or so.
I suppose I could always block folk from messaging me, but then your buddy counter goes up to ridiculous numbers like '0/1001 online'. My best pal and I don't publish our IM addresses anymore because we just kept getting burnt by the fanatic element out there.

*nodsnods* Exactly. I post my general IM info, just because I do get on them once in a blue moon and am fine with chatting to people. But this is my PRIVATE list I'm talking about here, which is why it's annoying me to death. These are all people who know me pretty darn well, and KNOW that I'm trying to get work done, and that I'd rather not be bothered right now. :/
