Root Removable Bloat

OK, so, I have root and CWM, as well as made a backup of my system right after CWM was installed. Now I have started the tedious trek of removing bloatware. I had forgotten how much useless crap Verizon puts on their phones.

So, my question is does anyone know or have a list of the bloat that is removable without crashing the system? I have already removed a lot, but I left some of the Verizon stuff in case then system checks for it. After I get ideas of what can be removed, I'll assemble a master list for everyone :)
I haven't tried deleting anything yet, but there is allot I would like to delete, but don't want to crash the system like you said

I went through and deleted a TON of crap, seems to have sped up a lot. I deleted things I knew weren't important but there are others like the Verizon backup and stuff that I don't know if I should get rid of. NoBloat Free let's you backup the app and then delete it so I have been doing that. I also made a CWM backup so if I crash it, I'll let you know lol
