Is It Rude to Purge Facebook Friends?

Is It Rude to Post a "Friend Purging" Status on Facebook?

I've talked about my restrictive Facebook friend-accepting policy before; it primarily exists to keep me from adding people who aren't really friends — otherwise after a few years, anyone will run the risk of having friend counts into the thousands. And today, I noticed a friend's status update announcing that she was "purging her friends list. Sorry guys!"

As someone who takes Facebook friendships more seriously than others, the update was a little passive-aggressive for my taste. This process, for what it's worth, is exactly what I'm trying to avoid with my strict friend-accepting policy. What do you think — is making an announcement before purging friends totally rude?
