Friend requests

I been getting several friend requests from users with zero posts, has anyone else been seeing the same? I been rejecting them, it's funny you have to post 10 message to send a private email, but you can apparently sent friend requests with no posts.

    On a serious note, it's been 8 years since I joined TE and 126 friend requests later. I can honestly say that I don't really understand what it grants someone since they don't really appear to be able to communicate with you easier. Most of my contact with TE friends is through Linkedin, Ryver chatroom, or Twitter.

    I would send you a BFF request if TE had it. But they don't. So I can't. Sorry buddy.

    Because I can go see who your friends are, and judge you based on who they are, rather than judging you on the content of your posts.

    Eventually factions develop, leading to increased drive by malware.

    OMG.

    Also an advantage to friend requests, albeit less publicized....

    I friend people when it's relevant. If you constantly post interesting content or if I find that your posts are informative and relevant to what I'm interested in, I'll friend you. Just so I can follow your posts. I do the same with Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.. I don't like the noise of a million posts, but I do like to hear the opinions or posts of some people.

    Maybe they are like Tom from MySpace. Everyone gets to be his friend.

    I don't accept friend requests from people I haven't read there posts, I also do not accept LinkedIn connections unless I worked with, trained with or know from the community. From example I would accept a connection request from Iris, but not some random person that found me via search.

    Ha! My youngest had a bunch of friends stay the night last night. My last thought before going to sleep was "remember to put pants on before walking to your office tomorrow".

    What is that page? It's more offensive than downloading malware, although the source code looks cleaner than most myspace pages did.

    It's a leftover remnant from when vBulletin was developing new functionality. It's been stagnant since 2009 or so when nearly all the original developers left. The friend functionality probably made more sense back at a time before even Facebook's rapid rise to popularity.

    For you losers with no friends, I'll accept a friend request if you send me the invite. Purely out of pity.

    For those I offend with my offbeat sense of humor, I would gladly accept an adversary request. Until TE adds a foe feature we could just maintain an enemies list in our signatures.

    I can't believe I'm still in this thread instead of helping some TE noob with his **** request.
