Block multiple/repeated Friend Requests

Feature Requests

Completed
If someone sends me a friend request, I don't care, I just mark it as no, and move on. However, if that same person sends me another request, I would like to have the option to not just say no, but, block future friend requests. I am not saying block the person entirely, block all messages and comments and forum posts, just that after the second no, I should be able to put at least a small wall up around me that keeps that from happening again.

Can we get this, please?
Yeah maybe handle it like LinkedIn does where you don't say "no" to a request, you "ignore" the request. Then the request is put to the side and since there is already one outstanding it shows up as pending on the senders list, preventing them from re-sending .

Adding nothing constructive to a thread near you

What exactly is the point of this thread?

Realizing that you have to work on fixing your own negativity even as you are helping another person deal with their negativity will help you gain the compassion, positivity, and maturity that is needed for this tricky, but ultimately satisfying, endeavor.

And I see no reason to accept a friend request from someone I am not friends with, and whom I do not know.
Play nice you two.
The justification for futiles' requests don't necessarily matter, as he's still allowed to make them.

I apologized to him for sending him friend requests and I left it alone. no big deal. just because futiles is not your friend doesn't mean you cant conversate with him in the forums but be careful because he bites. lol Smile
I'm the kind of guy who stops the microwave at 1 second just to feel like a bomb defuser.

I can agree that if you don't want people to be friends with since you don't know them or care about them, it would cause you less time in rejecting the requests every time you get one, sorry because I believe I sent you a request possibly more than once (going for the friends badge) sorry. So is there a way to piggy back on this so that the sender can see that they have already sent a request, not pending say after its rejected so just going to their page may have some recognition that it was sent. That would help anyone going for friend badges to keep from harassing someone.

...and I have know futiles in the forums for many years and he has declined my request also.

Assuming you convince me, no one is going to follow this and no one is going read the post until you point it out to violators.

The policy has to be strict and enforced. Do it once, you are warned and linked to the post. Do it again, and you get a day away from the site. Do it again, and you are gone for good.

Ignorance of the law is not a defense. You did not read the policy? Oh well, that's still a strike.
