cutting the crap

Ok, I've started the first pass of the culling. I'm not going to post every little detail here, but this is just to give you an idea of the kind of crap I'm getting rid of.

arrl_feed - insufficiently interesting
cassini_saturn - added during a flurry of "space vehicle" blogs, no new content
effpress - I can read about this stuff elsewhere
electoralvote - that was so last year
gmail - nothing interesting happens here
hubbletelescope - another space vehicle
linguaphiles - high volume, lots of repeated content
nucleartacoscom - no content, superseded by nucleartacos
opportunitygrrl - another space vehicle
orkut - nothing interesting happens here
sciam - can read this elsewhere, lame rss feed with headlines only
space_com - I always end up skipping over this when reading my friends page
spiritrover - another space vehicle
star_dusting - how many space vehicles were there??
voyager_at_90au - yet another space vehicle
wesun_puzzle - uninteresting puzzles

As you can see, none of these are people's individual journals. Readers of this journal are unlikely to cause enough noise to be removed. But you never know, I might get ruthless.
