A nudge is as good as a wink to a blind man...

So, a lot of people seem to be getting militant about the new nudge feature in livejournal. I am rather left wondering why this is. Any conciencious objectors out there care to fill me in on their reasoning?

I can see how having randoms annoying you would be a bad thing but the feature is only open to mutual friends and only if you've not posted for a week. Does anyone out there who doesn't post weekly have mutual friends who couldn't just email them anyway?

I wasn't intending to use the nudge feature but yes, I know people through LJ I don't know any other way and have no other way of reaching. And not all of them have their comments sent to themselves by email.
Indeed. I don't see it as a bad thing. Not one I'm planning on using.

I'm just wondering why people are opposed to it in the first place...
