Friendship requests on AnswerMug.

In your opinion, how many times should a request for online friendship be denied before the sender "gets it?"

    I liked the color of this option the best. :-)

    In any case, what usually happens is that a friendship denial isn't received by the prospective friend.  He or she has no way to tell if you've denied their entreaties, and thus keeps sending them thinking the system has forsaken them.  I friended a person about five or six times on SH and never got a response. This person and I had always hit it off in public conversation, so I just assumed something had broken until she very publicly scolded me.

    It might help to clear up the confusion if there was a way to PM someone with or about a friendship request.

    Unless I misunderstand navigating the website (which is entirely possible), you cannot send anyone a message unless you're mutual friends with each other.  Hey, maybe I should accept the request just to be able to send the message that I don't want to be friends, then remove the person from my list of friends. Hmmmm.

    Precisely!  That way you can let them know in no uncertain terms, but WITHOUT publicly humiliating them...assuming that isn't your intention.

    That didn't help in this instance.  I accepted this airhead's friend request and said in no uncertain terms to stop sending them. Then I Unfriended him. He messaged me "claiming" he was having trouble reading my comment to which I did not reply. There should be an option to block these people. I believe it's been five times so far.

    I agree with you. It gets annoying, doesn't it?

    Yup it sure does, he knows it does and that's why he continues. If he has enough gray matter to log on the computer, he's well aware of his actions, and he continues because he's allowed to.

    If he looked like THAT, I wouldn't mind as much. lol. But if I had to guess, he's probably a pimply rosy palmer.

    Until the sender gets it?!? How about until the recipient gets it?!? Would you just accept my dang friend request? I'll send it a million and one times if I have to. Believe me, bub, I will wear you down until you finally click that confirm button.

    If it had ONLY been real, he would now reside at the county dump in a plastic garbage bag, but this is how it played out instead:

    My hands 'round his scrawny neck
    Right through my computer screen
    But morning dawned & I awoke
    This sucks!  It was ONLY just a dream!

    I believe we're all speaking of the same person. I'm beginning to suspect that many of us were bombarded with that person's requests, and we must have collectively yet individually declined them, causing their repetition.

    Once is enough. The second time, I just leave them hanging - after a while they get the hint and cancel their request, lol

    Listen up.  What is the point of having them on here anyway?   I get a number on a little bell telling me people commented on posts that I posted on. 

    how intimate!!!!

    So which is it you don't like, the little numbers or the little balls.  The latter is easily remedied because I can show you my big ol' swo . . . oops, you wrote 'bells', didn't you?

    Sorry about that. Never mind.

    Once is enough for me.  I won't lose sleep if it's denied.  I figure they may come back at a later time and friend request me.  :)

    I can't begin to speculate why he's repeatedly want ME in his harem. He persistently sends those requests to me and I keep denying him. Maybe he envisions some interracial Greco-Roman tryst with the two of us oiled down from head to foot and grappling in our Hefty-bag tunics . . .
