I'm new here. So maybe i don't get how these things work. A few people requested my friendship on my first day which was nice. I accepted all of them. In the future if we ever become friends on mylot don't take the opportunity to solicit sites to me in an attempt to gain referrals. Or if thats all you want out of this site talk me up a bit first. A pm with the words CASH $$$ and Sign up here don't feel to personal, throw in a link that has an obvious referral code embedded makes the whole transaction faceless. I dropped this user from my friend list and i encourage you do to the same! Lets build mylot to the best ideal not the to only what is profitable in the short term subjectively.

The only place I post my refferal link are in the money section, but I know it won't get me anywhere, so I'll agree. I never spam people, but I've gotten a few messages with links and such. I just want to enjoy mylot as a place to discuss anything and everything going on in life. Thanks for pointing this out in your topic. This will help greatly.

yeah i think thats fair and a lot of users add banners or links in their profile.. I don't know how far i would go down that path.. I've definitely thought about trying to get referrals but the best way is tricky to settle on. I am convinced on the power of quality threads and so far I've had a good experience.

I know what you mean. I have gotten a few of those myself, and it bothers me when people request a friendship just so that they can spam you. Don't get me wrong, I am involved with some of these programs myself, but I will not send information to others unless it is requested, and I expect the same courtesy from others.

I say that when that is the initial form of contact you have directly with the person and its soliciting you should delete them as a friend until proven otherwise by other means.

I agree. I have only had that happen by a couple of members, but I do not see any reason for it. If that were the only reason they want me on their friends list, then why would I want to be on theirs?
