Do you ever reject a friend request here on JUB?
If you do, what is the basis?
The only reason I ask is because I just received one from someone with no posts at all.
I don't, but I do delete some after the fact, just like I did on Facebook when I was there.
If a JUB member had no posts, there is no way I would add.
I do when I have not encounter that person in forum before or he has his dick or ass pic as an avatar and does not posted anything before.
No but I have been on an ignore streak lately.
Not yet. I've only gotten requests from people who've posted enough on JUB to give me a good idea of what they're about. I do get a lot of requests from total strangers on Facebook despite cranking all the privacy settings to maximum. Since I only use my FB account for close friends and family, if the requester isn't from either category, then I just say NO.
I usually will. I can always defriend if they get annoying.
...but to those I've 'rejected', it's nothing personal
... I just don't 'do' the friend thing here anymore
... nor PMs
... but I do check my comments from time to time.
I will harass you with friend requests if you reject me.
i have a couple, just sitting there, i have neither confirmed nor denied them just because i'm not really on here regularly enough to keep anything more than a small conversation . I would like to be friends on facebook with some of you guys though.
I don't understand that feature anyway. So i don't click accept or reject ...
NEVER LISTEN TO A ONE SIDED STORY AND JUDGE.
I have no idea.
>>chuckles and sarcastic “who knew”s<<
>>from the peanut gallery<<
How do they arrive, via pm or something else?
I don't know what it is, either.
Everyone wants to be heard. No one wants to listen.
No. Not that I ever receive any, lol...
Nope..can't say that I've ever rejected a friend request here
Not to say I wouldn't do it though LOL
I accept all requests, as there's no harm in it. If the person proves annoying, I can always delete them.
Ok ok ok I have a question.
What's the difference between adding someone as a contact and sending a friend request? Because when I want to add someone, I click their username and the drop down menu comes down. There is no "request as friend" option, but "Add as contact." So I just click that thinking it's the same thing. But then it directs me to a confirmation page where it asks if I also want to send a friend request as well, with a check box.
So..yeah, what's the difference, if there is one? What happens if I add as a contact, but uncheck the box when asking to send a friend request?
I can't stand people who are "friends" with every idiot that comes along. WTF is the point?
I never reject anyone, even those with no posts who've been here for years, i usually send them a thankyou message hoping to draw them out onto the boards.
Every now and then i do have a huge clearout of those that i've never heard from again, or the banned.
No, but the people who friend me (and the people I friend) are usually ones I interact with on here. So there hasn't really been any awkwardness.
But, tbh, I have next to zero interest in almost all of the zillion new features on JUB since the upgrade (how do some even work? IDGI). But since some people friended me, I was like "oh okay lemme friend a few myself." Aside from that, I don't really get it.
I just stick to post comments and PMs. Keeps it simple.
I haven't rejected one yet. Don't know about criteria; I suppose I'll know if it ever becomes an issue.
I've never rejected one. I'll see how it plays out. You can always delete them, but I've never done that either.
If someone wants to friend me here then by all means do so.
On facebook, unless there is a reason to friend me, either friend of a friend, went to school, or for a game, then I probably won't add you as a friend right away. I think I took a year to add a wife of one of brothers friend from high school...
I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it.
Nobody wants to be my friend, so I don't, except for a few that passed away (Pegasus was a few towns away from me).
Nope, not sure if I have the heart to reject it. However, if I try to talk to the person and they don't reply, I can just delete, coz that just means that they are collecting friends here.

But I am not afraid to delete them quickly if they get on my tits.................
not on jub, but then i dont use the "friend" function at all... to be honest, i dont even know what it means to be a jub friend, practically speaking.
on facebook, on the other hand... sometimes i get requests from people i know, but am no longer in contact with, and dont necessarily want to get in touch with again. those guys i just leave passive-agressively unanswered.
If there is no other info, no posts, no profile, etc. I delete them. If I get one out of the blue I don't usually acknowledge those either.
I usually only approve or "add" those requests of people I have had some kind of interaction with on the board. Either a post comment, or a visitor message or a direct reply on the boards somewhere, etc.
I don't know. It's like people showing up on your doorstep unannounced. I just don't like that. And I rarely answer the door to those who do it. Even if I know them. So add unannounced friend requests in their too. Go figure.
I don't accept friend requests from people I've never heard of.
No i just add them.
All the time. Pisses me off that I'll get a request before they've even said one word to me. I realize that "friend" means something different online, and I have friended people here and there that in real life I wouldn't consider a friend. I guess I'm somewhat old school but to me "friend" means something to me.
I actually don't really pay attention to them at all and pretty much ignore them. Haven't actually responded to them.
I am not sure if I have ever recieved one, lol~
Bloody fucking hell...
I try to keep a small exclusive group and 2 yahoos
(with what appears as excellent credentials)
come out of the woodwork.
One has been around since '03 the other since
just after me in '05. Well, come on boys...
you've passed the litmus test
Crimsonpaine and Mark1111, invitations have been sent
Now I gotta go excommunicate a person or 3 that are inactive or dead.
You need to post a bit, maybe blog or do a thread.
You are an OhiOan so you can't be tooooo bad...
but you need to be a bit proactive man.
Good people will be watching..........
Yes, for the same reason I reject them on facebook - shouldn't we at least be, you know, friends first? Have some common interests? In the case of facebook, shouldn't you at least know someone that knows me and then try to get to know me before befriending me?
Maybe I'm nuts, but I prefer quality.

Never reject here but on other sites frequently because it's spam a lot of the time.
Nope...Life's too short to be exclusive for friends!
The Three Musketeers... Bashful, Chrisglass, and Ronboy!
I take back what I said, I have friends now!!!
I'm still pretty new, so no one has sent me a friend request yet. I have no reason to reject any though! If they start any trouble, I could always delete them.
