Please don't collect me!

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

I don't want to upset any one but I need to get this off my chest.

I got a Spark email saying that a person had made me their friend. When I went to check who it was because I was clueless of this persons identity, I found I had been "collected". This person had 893 friends!!!!

I don't want to be part of someone's collection. I wish there were a way to decline a friend request. This way it would be an agreement on both parties.

Now I just feel dirty, I'm out in cyber space on Sparkpeople somewhere, in the dark, lost, lonely, yet rubbing shoulders with 893 strangers eeeeewwwwww. I feel used and dirty........please excuse me I need to shower!!! LOL

    LOL. It's a compliment to be selected as a friend. I have a few hundred friends but I never add anyone unless they add me first. Some people are very courteous and ask first. Some of these people many be someone that you might not have been friends with in real life but this is a public domain and you can set your page to private if you like. Your friends can still see your page and access it.

    I can understand how you feel. It sounds like someone hasn't got enough to do. You have to pity them, they are worse off than you are

    This is a pet peeve of mine too. I don't like being added to be I have no idea who they are. I've had a few people do that and then never heard from them again. WTH? If I add someine it's because I want to keep in contract with them. Not to collect them!

    There is no way. It isn't on their priority list to do I'm afraid.

    I'm with you, I wish there was a notification system or something where you could accept your friends. I haven't even gotten an email when I am added to someone's list. I remember it being the same way several years ago when I was on the site too, you think they would do some updating or something.
