START A PETITION

Dear friends and other readers of my profile,
 
Since February 2012, I have not accepted any "friend requests", sent any "green stars", or sent any birthday e-cards and I apologize for that.
 
I am receiving so many messages from Care2 and Facebook friends and e-mails in general that I am not managing to keep up. The volume of messages has gradually increased until it became "too much". I also watch a lot of television and read daily Croatian newspapers since that also helps me with my activism. 
 
About 1 year ago I used to exchange good quality messages with many Care2 friends. But then, starting in November 2011, this "trend" started, in which people send very short messages with no real content. I notice that people often send a "green star" where it is not possible to see what it relates to. This does not only apply to Care2, but to all kinds of friends. I had old friends from school and relatives discover me on Facebook or they somehow found my e-mail. They would send me a very short message, such as "How are you?" or "Remember me?". I was delighted and sent them a reply, consisting of a few paragraphs (but not too long, because a long message might "frighten them away"). None of them replied.
 
I will reply to introductions and personal messages and accept those "friend requests" with an introduction or if you have "signed" the petition regarding kangaroos that is still active. (I did not create the petitions but they are just two that I decided to promote). I will "sign" as many forwarded petitions as possible but will often give up on long lists, espacially if I am at work and get interrupted or if I go off on some link and end up "bogged" reading hundreds of comments.
 
Since I have a negative attitude towards my life (especially since my mother demanded that I buy an apartment during the 2003 stockmarket fall, which meant no more investing or big donations from me; and because I never have enough time in the day) please do not feel obliged to send me an e-card for my birthday in future years, a Christmas e-card, etc. I apologise if I do not manage to reply to those that I do receive.
 
Please do not feel obliged to read my very long Share. The only reason that I do not delete it is because some people have commented it and I do not want to come across as manipulative by deleting things.
 
IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY DONE SO, PLEASE "SIGN" THE PETITION AGAINST THE KILLING OF KANGAROOS IN MY SHARE AND ALSO REPEATED ON MY PAGE BILLBOARD.
 
Best regards,
 
Simon Validzic
