I have never been the member that gets a lot of friends requests here. But since I had been banned for almost a week I have been recieving them left and right. I can't figure out if it's maybe because of the friends discussions I've seen here about my being AWOL or what. I just added my 15th new friend since I returned yesterday and still have a few pending. Why is this? It seems wierd I get this many AFTER being banned and gone 6 1/2 days. Hmmmm? Just a little odd is all to me. Thanks to all those that have requested my friendship and that I have addwed. It's truely appreciated and generous. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I seem to be on a cycle of friend requests myself this week. I am not nearly as overwhelmed as you are, just one or two new ones every day. Not all of them are new users, either. I thought that mine was because I have been posting to new discussions and to new user discussions and discussions with zero responses. I also flattered myself that it was because of my touching and meaningful discussions, LOL I do imagine you have become a myLot hero, with the notoriety of being laid off. You become a focus for everyone else's frustration.

Personally I think a bunch of dog lovers must have joined... You have one really cute adult puppy dog there. Can he come over to play? Or maybe it's that we all love a rebel!

heh, may be the reputation of a rebel makes you popular :-P Or just you got all the requests instead of receiving one or two daily. May be there is a period of activisation of the new members.Check your requests. How much of them are newbies? How much of them are from: Philipini, China,India and etc? I hope of course that they will be real friends and not use you just because you are active and serious poster in MyLot. Happy postings from me too:-)

Me? A rebel? Hahahahaha!!! Don't let my wife or daughter know this. I had 17 new requests when I finally got to log in yesterday. Then this morning there were 15 more requests. Guess I must be likeable or something then for real. I thouight this talk of me was all fluff talk. Who knows. Maybe it's true. But thanks for all support from all here.

You've became a cult figure buddy. This would be the reason everyone wants to know someone who returns and has great friends here. Seriously though, maybe the attention your banning as gained as helped people to find you and see your a cool fun person to get to know? Anyways welcome back :) ~Joey P.s A friend of creme's :)

Ah, It's always nice to see mylotters who are themselves because many other communities have people with gimmicks and It's hard to take part. I think you've highlighted in your response why people want to be your friend. :) Happy mylotting buddy, ~Joey

After my posting about you have mylot problems, I've had a couple ppl tell me you weren't on their friend's list but they sought you out anyways for your great discussions and sense of humor, Grandpa Bob. I'm assuming that's where 2 of your recent friend's requests came from. Your just so popular here in mylot and is very much missed when you don't show yourself for more than a day, let alone 6 days. thanks to mylot and their overzealous temp. bans. :-)

maybe you became a controversial figure all of a sudden because of that banning thing. those who have applied for friendship with you, are most probably trying to tell you that they care for you. they want you to stay around because, you are a friend to them. i have noticed myself that there are some people who are not in my friend's list and yet we have been having some exchanges in various discussions. they are friends to me alright, regardless of being in my friends list or not.

Thank you very much. From a few other of my discussions I have come to learn the valuable friends I have here. I've also learned that I am very well liked it. I thinks it's mostly the humorous side of me. I try not to be too serious abouit any matters and feel that humor always makes things seem less complicated. I do get serious when needed though as my friends here know all too well. Thanks again for being here. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hi grandpa. After the "shock" you gave me as well as to other posters here, its not surprising that you have become the famous prodigal son of mylot, LOL! I also have a lot of new friend's request and majority of them are newbies. I will check on their activities and movements for a day before accepting any of them. There is nothing weird about posters liking you. Everyone loves to be in your company. Happy posting, grandpa.

I had a discussion explaining it all earlier but that's since been deleted. I have been asked by mylot not to discuss this any further. But I was gone nearly a week and with many letters to mylot from my friends here I have been reinstated. Thanks to all. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

That is indeed strange grandpa lol. And it's weird to see you back using this moniker since I just accepted a friends request under the other one of yours called Grandpa Bob a day or so ago LOL. If I delete that one, do you think it's classed as deleting a friend? :P
