Do you delete your messages?

On GaG. Or do you just leave them and let them build up?

sometimes I'll go through and delete a chunk, but then I get bored after awhile and bail.

  • Pretty much just let them build. It is a good way to remember things about people, like birthdays, interests, What they enjoy talking about, do they share nude pictures. lol. Mostly kidding on that last one but it sounded great to put in. It bugs me that after 30 days things disappear. Many times I have wondered if we have covered a topic or how that person thinks about something, but when I look it is old and was deleted.

  • I never delete messages or emails.
    partly because I might want to read through them again, mostly because I am lazy.

  • Very rarely but most of the time I leave them be. In case I want to quickly find out someone's username when I'm not following them but have messaged them.

    • True, but sometimes you wanna keep some people on the front of your messages or only like two pages in instead of fifteen, so ya gotta delete some.

    • Yeah, this is indeed true.

  • No, I don't in case I need to reference something. I had to block a few cat fishers and it's nice being able to quickly identify which ones they are.

  • No I don't. I do it on rare cases when the convo doesn't intrigue me anymore or we don't speak. So I end up deleting it.
