Is it wrong to de-friend people because their status updates are annoying?

i'm at work all day and go on facebook to zone out a bit. i'll have like 4 updates from people i knew in high school about how "baby jonas woves wittle cookies but not the big uns!" STFU! or "i'm so bored when baby's sleeping... I think i'll shop!"

this wouldn't be interesting conversation much less an update to your status. maybe if your baby was smearing pop on the walls or caught a showijng of scarface and now you can't get him to stop swearing. or tells you "i'll do it tomorrow" when you ask him to do something because he got it from you.

So i've already created a list of "friends friends" and "no really friends"  and have my home page set to only show the friends friends updates and and only share most of my info with them also. but I'm starting to think I need to just scrap them all and only be friends with people i'm still friends with IRL and then winnow it down by annoying ness of updates.

How who you suggest organizing friends once the novelty of collecting wears off?

I regularly hide people and think it is cool they can't find out that I do. I did make a statement which is on my page that I REFUSE to play any of those nonsense games on there so don't even ask me to.

you can "hide" them from your news feed, so you never see their annoying statuses again but you can manually go their profile.

I don't do facebook, but I know some over enthusiastic tid-bitters can get annoying. I say it's okay.
