Paul......I sporadically receive this message when I try to catch up with earlier posts:

I tried to read the latest on Jalen Gaffney and got the message which has happened in the past.

Yeah, what's the deal with "friends"? What is this? Facebook? I think I've turned down Paultzman 8 times already because I don't understand why I should be friends with somebody on the site. We're all friends anyway, aren't we? ;)

austour Let me give you an example of how "friends" can be useful for a curmudgeon such as yourself. This is a stretch but bear with me for sake of example and explanation. Let's say you hate a guy. But the guy is friendly and for some reason likes you. During a weak moment, you agree to be "friends" with him. He starts sending you a bunch of Private Messages and keeps trying to engage you in conversations. You ignore them but finally give him a pissy reply hoping he'll go away. He is unfazed and continues to send you really nice private messages that just turn your stomach. The guy is just so nice that you want to puke just seeing his handle. You are really sick of him and finally it occurs to you that you could try unfriending him. Voila! he can no longer send you Private Messages...

Now reverse that and normal people might find a benefit to it is a positive way...

Hey Paul thanks for all your efforts - maybe you should teach a course - maybe a weeklong retreat - on navigating the system :p
Anyway my question - perhaps trite - deals with "becoming "friends" - what exactly happens and/or what does that lead to. Does it become easier e.g. to communicate one on one? We didn't have these issues during the CW circa 1860 lol


@Sherman, Sheridan & Grant# one of the benefits is the ability to send and receive private messages with that person. Limiting this to "friends" allow the user more control over who/how can contact them.

Talk about a long answer to a short question, though I did love it. However I have received private messages from folks who I'm not friends with so I still don't fully understand. Or is this "get message from friends only" a setting I could adjust. That said I welcome all and sundry to send me private messages I can ignore.

Anyway, I will continue to be friendless, just as I am in the real world. Thanks.
