I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

So I went and browsed for similar users on the interests page, which I can do now that I'm a paying user.
Is it sort of depressing that everyone I supposedly have loads in common with strikes me as intensely stupid and shallow?
Yeah, it is.
  • Remember...

    The average LJ-er is still in high school. If you could set a filter for your interests to over twenty-five or so, I bet you'd have much better matches. :)
  • I had the same experience -- it does seem that the average LJ user is a whiny, annoying child.

    What I want is a way to filter out interests -- i.e. users who are interested in things I like, but not any of the following: popular boy bands, high school, ... I forget what else was on my list, but I had a reasonably solid-seeming, if untestable, filter. Age range would help, although most of us don't put ages on our journals.
    • When I have some Copious Free Time, I'll start digging around in the LJ code and see if I can write up a patch for that. They might well take it as a new feature if someone just hands it to them.
  • Weirdly, I know most or am connected to my top interest matches.

    It's a small, small world.

  • Most of the top 10 in my list arent exactly quality material either :) As someone else mentioned though once you weed out the angst ridden brigade you get to the meaningful ones.
  • Ditto
  • I noticed you added me as a friend. Does that mean I'm intensely stupid and shallow? Or did you add me a different time?
    Just curious.

    • Nope.

      I added you a goodly while after bitching about how shallow most of the people who turned up on a friends search were; I altered my interests drastically, and there you were.
      Hi, welcome aboard, &c.
