I don't have any, but recently the troll calling himself "bacon" has affixed his callow phony moniker on the profile of a friend (mine, not his). My friend would like to expunge this troll from her profile, not merely hide it from public view. For the life of me, I cannot find any way to delete an unwanted contact. Any assistance will win my heartiest gratitude.
C O R R E C T I O N: I just found that I do have contacts, but I still don't know how becoming a contact comes about or how to "uncontact" someone.
Getting there, getting there... At the very bottom of any page, in tiny barely visible print, is a FAQ link, with this among the questions:
"What does it mean to add someone as a contact?
"You can add any member of Fictionaut as a contact by selecting the appropriate button on their story or profile pages. When you add somebody, they will be notified with a message, and if they like, they can also add you as a contact. Fictionaut automatically keeps you updated about activities by your contacts."
Now I must find the "appropriate button". This is getting to be fun!
Yay, mystery solved. The "button" is up on the right-hand margin. Key word is "follow" not "contact". However, when you click it, you are notified that you are now a "contact". To "uncontact" you simply click the "unfollow" button.
Lordy, I feel so accomplished!
At one point I also wondered how to get rid of my contacts. The protocol I found seems less complicated than yours. I just went back to wearing glasses.
