    What happens if I reject a friend request? Will the requester get a message saying that I have rejected him/her?

    ok, thanks. I got one from someone I don't know, and I don't want to add them, but I don't want to be rude, either. :redface:

    That's what I had been doing. I had no idea what happened either and didn't want them to feel rejected if they were just someone new trying to figure out how PF works, but didn't want to really add someone I don't know either. I figured maybe eventually I'd approve their request later if I found out who they were and liked them. :uhh:

    Hmm, I just got a new friend request as well. I'm guessing that it's probably from the same member who requested friendship with you guys...

    "Why do MIH hate me?" "Why don't she write?"

    Ah the pain, the angst, the self-loathing...

    That's OK, MIH, don't even think about the psychological damage you are wreaking with your callous indifference to your potential friends. :cry:

    I might not be, after she reads my (just joshing!!!) post above. Maybe a jar of habanero relish would patch things up....

    OKAY! OKAY! UNCLE!

    I will craft a tactful letter explaining that it's not really a rejection, just more of a "wait list" situation. The request will be reconsidered at a later date when I have gotten a chance to know something about the requestor.

    You don't need to do that, it is probably the same person that has sent friendship requests to several of us in the past couple of days.

    shoot. I just finished composing my thoughtful, sensitive letter. I even included a list of members to approach who might have lower friendship standards.

    I'd like to see that list, Left-Coaster. Could be fun.

    Edit: I'm probably on the list. I haven't refused anybody.

    Funny, since I subscribe to Groucho's philosophy that I wouldn't want to belong to any club that would agree to have me as a member... :redface:
