On reread my comment about 'if you wouldn't make a phone call about it, I don't want to see it' was meant to be a lot more light hearted than it is. (I forget sometimes that I usually keep my OTT melodrama off here).
I just block or delete those that annoy me repeatedly and then check their profile every few days to see if there's anything I'd find interesting. And I'm certain there have been people do the same with my feeds. As others have said it's not that hard!
