Should I just delete all my messages and start fresh?

    I have 1105 messages (126 unread)... some I'm sure that are trash and others I've been meaning to get back to but since there's no organizing hierarchies that I'm aware of on RJ, everything is meshed into this giant "inbox" category. I've always been obsessed with going through my inbox in various places when I have time and cleaning it out. Feels good, like I'm cleaning.

    But now I'm thinking it'd probably be more advantageous to just throw everything in the trash because: 1. saves a shitload of time, 2. can start fresh by replying to new messages instead of ones from months ago. I kinda feel bad that there's some people I've clicked with via message on RJ and I'll lose those connections. But I really don't have the patience anymore to weed through everything. icon_sad.gif

    Have you ever just purged your entire RJ inbox? Does it feel good or do you regret it somehow later?



    Oh, and since this will happen, I'll just address it now:
    Random idiot on RJ: Oh look at you Mr. Popular you have so many messages yet you complain.
    My response: No, I just don't delete a lot of my messages because I'm lazy.

    You also haven't posted nearly as much as me. 0.3% as much as me to be exact. At your rate of 7 messages per 24 posts, once you post as much as me you should have 2,331 messages, hopefully not all from RJ.

    I purged everything once, EVERYthing, but I had read them all first. icon_wink.gif

    I haven't but I should, sometimes I like to look back on the email conversations I've had with people on here. I'd have to go through all my mail and manually delete the irrelevant ones and that would take forever.

    Yeah... I have thousands that I'm like, "Well, I never replied... wonder why..."

    Don't think I have the patience to clear them all out though.

    I never delete a message, I've accrued a lot of valuable and incriminating info on a lot of people.

    You know who you are.

    You know what you did.

    Jake, don't stress over this. It's just the testosterone surging through your body that's got you concerned over it. Damn body chemicals!

    Yeah, a lot. I do it when it gets to about 10 pages. I just delete the whole thing. I don't see the point of keeping messages consisting of conversations I'll easily remember or the many.... rather annoying.... requests

    You just reminded me that I haven't been cleaning out my inbox for my email lately. I would go through about 20 or so a day. Eventually I will get rid of the junk I really don't need.... I think you should just go through it. I'm sure some of the messages aren't that long.

    I've never purged in my entire RJ existence. But I'll feel better after my meal at RUB BBQ later today! icon_razz.gif
