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 suppose their argument would be that if you're an infrequent LJ user then you're unlikely to be aware of the feature or indeed activate it, thus making it pointless.

It seems most people consider it pointless in the first place, myself included. Would seem more effective to ask other people if so_n_so was ok, and if they'd heard from them recently, methinks.

I'm not saying people were complaining unneccessarily, by any means, I just didn't see what problems it was really causing. If would be fair to say that my query was well answered. :)
