Exclude Specific Communities from FriendsFriends Page

Exclude Specific Communities from FriendsFriends Page

Short, concise description of the idea
Provide an option to selectively exclude specific communities from appearing on the FriendsFriends pages available to paid users.

Full description of the idea
While I enjoy browsing through my friendsfriends page as a chance to meet other people and find other communities, there are some communities that my friends list which I don't want to read. Some of them have disturbing content to me personally, some of them are just annoying to wade through. I'm sure that I can't be the only user to feel this way, either. What I suggest is for LiveJournal to provide an option for users to restrict specific community journal entries from appearing on the friendsfriends pages. I imagine that it would involve a list or a check box that a user would fill out or add to. The specific format is unimportant--especially as I don't know what I'm talking about when it comes to programming. Note before you flame me that I have suggested nothing that would affect other users's friends lists. I also did not suggest the ability to remove personal journals from the friendsfriends page.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Reduced "clutter" on the FriendsFriends page.
  • Ability for users to avoid reading communities on their friendsfriends list that they have no interest in or are disturbed by.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Coding/database problems--I don't know if the LiveJournal system would allow something like this because I know nothing about program.
  • The usual brou-ha-ha over the mention of restricting entries on a friends page because some people don't read sentences carefully.
  • Objections by communities who don't want their public entries restricted in any way.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I don't know anything about program (as I've mentioned), so I don't have any idea how to implement this.
