Hello everyone. Recently I made a post in which I got a reply that lead me to believe that my meaning may not have been clear to everyone, although most of the replies did in fact respond to the topic of my post, not all did and I want to be clear to everyone, so I am reposting a previous discussion but wording it differently: I am a member of myspace. I joined myspace to meet new friends. I did not ask or invite anyone else to join myspace. I, as a member of myspace, sent a friend request to another member of myspace and that member sent me a message telling me that friend request were rude. What do you think of that?

hi betsyraeduke! ^__^ that also happened to me. i started a discussion and i felt i wasn't clear with all the details so i started another one about the same thing again. ^__^;; anyway, i can't think of any reason why would a "friend request" in myspace can be rude. i'm a dormant member of that site but when i was active before, i didn't receive anything like it. what is wrong with requesting someone to be your friend?? i think you should delete that person from your friends list. that person is the rude one and not your friend request.

That person is not on my friends list, as they declined the offer. I just that they could have declined and left it at that, not tell me that friend request were rude. Thanks

Now just how in the heck is that rude? If they are a member what do they expect? It is on their profile to request them as a friend!! That makes absolutely no sense!! The whole point of Myspace is to meet people whether they are old friends, some one from work, or you've never met but you found them interesting!! Now I know that there are a lot of hackers at Myspace, but that doesn't mean that EVERYONE is a friggin hacker. So in that aspect I can understand them being cautious. But their reply to you was not cautious, it was just flat out rude!! THEY were the ones being RUDE!! I'm glad that I have not had to go through that...I would have to chew them a new hole in their butt!! (putting it nicely)

I agree it was rude of the other person to tell you that you were being rude. He/she could have just declined the invite. Here's my myspace if you would like to add me :) myspace.com/Sweet_Lyrical

It is not rude to invite someone to be your friend, especially when you have a tab that says "INVITE A FRIEND". If it freaks them out because they might not know you, then they should do as I do, I delete the request and never reply. myspace.com/jlisenba

Hello betsyraeduke my opinion on this matter is that the person you sent the friend request to is the one who is being rude. Afterall that is what these sites are all about to make new friends and interact with them if these people dont wish to be contacted they should state this clearly in their profile. Cheers!

I don't believe that the "friend request" is rude but I do believe that the person who said that it was rude is very simple minded and that they can't comprehend the concept of your requesting them to be your "friend". If they can't understand the meaning of "friend request" then I believe you can find many other people who WILL understand it.
