    Hopefully people don't think I am a snob but if I get a request for friend, I like to know or see a little about the person. Photos don't have to be nude - although they are nice, but location and something about the person would help.

    I have several friendship request from me that have never been acknowledged so I realize not everyone wants to be friends with everyone.

    How do you feel? :confused:

    Random friend requests..Its super annoying.

    Friend requests in general dont mean a whole lot, unless people have private albums.

    ^^^^This.

    Being on a friendship list means they access to private albums and so it pays to be a bit cautious as to who you accept.

    I usually just accept 'em, though I have a few folks on my list who are actual friends. My album is public, so privacy isn't a huge concern for me.

    I actually just went through and culled a ton of people from my list. When I was a mod, I accepted every friend request I got because I know a lot of people like having mods on their friends list so they can more readily tell when one is online. So... I removed all the people I hadn't personally spoken to and all the accounts that have been banned or deactivated. In the future, I won't accept any friend requests from people I haven't chatted with.

    I go through phases...

    Some weeks, I'll accept them all because I don't want people I decline thinking I'm playing favorites with those I accepted. Other weeks, I decline everyone because I get tired of assholes thinking admin + friend accept = Must provide porn on demand.

    This week for a change, I'm accepting all requests unless they're from someone I know to be a complete asshole!

    I don't deny anyone. For the most part it has worked out well. I have made some nice friends on here.

    I like to know a bit more about a person before I 'friend' them, but not because of my pics, but because it simply strikes me as odd to friend someone you don't ever say 'hey how are you?' to. I like to email a bit, or at least chat page to page.

    I also agree with Lightkeeper -- I think if someone doesn't have anything at all on their page to share, it's kinda a no go for me. At least they can list where they are, if their a guy or a gal, so on....

    Oh, and to answer the OP's question: I generally accept most blind friend requests, but sometimes I'll refuse them if something feels "off" about the requestor or their profile. For instance: if they just joined the site or their profile is completely blank, it creeps me out a bit.

    But it's generally not a problem as I don't field *too* many requests.

    Although if I'm not mistaken I believe the OP, Lightkeeper himself, sent me a friend request without much by way of introduction. ��

    I only accept if I like the person.

    For some reason, I feel equally as guilty to accept someone as a friend as if I would deny them.

    On the one hand, I like to have people I might actually consider "friends" on my friends list, but on the other hand, if I know them well enough and they have a good reputation on here, I'd accept them or even request a friendship with them.

    Woah, I didn't know you were still around these parts! I know I didn't remove you from my friends list because I have spoken to you, obviously. :tongue: Maybe you were gone from another time or something? I'm not sure. Friend request sent, tho. :tongue:

    I, too, refuse to accept "blank" profiles. The only reason I do that is if I've actually talked to the person or interacted in some way.

    I actually really value the word "friend" and when someone puts it out there I take it over rejecting it most of the time. Some people though I can't figure out. Like their signature makes a big deal about denying friend requests but they send emails on the side. Got one of these a while back and didn't know how to take their comment. The feel becomes... don't contact me but I can contact you. That seems odd to me so I end up putting them on my ignore list.

    ^ Thanks for excepting mine though. I swear you would not have been banned had you declined. I just like reading your posts.

    When I receive a request, I ALWAYS check the post history first to make sure they're someone I even want among my friends.

    I've exchanged p.m's with some on several occasions, and others I've had no contact with.

    Generally, I appreciate the invites (and the comments) and have accepted almost all of them.
