Why would you deny people who request you as "friend" in mylot?

When people send you a friend request, would you automatically approve it without second thought; or you might not know that stranger, you probably just deny his/her request? So, if you deny that particular person's request, what will be the reasons? Why would you deny his/her request?

I usually check into it, and I will approve it, but I may take them off my friend's list later but usually it is because they did not participate or I find out that they maybe were sort of looking for a fight, that is they were particularly mean and vicious. So I never deny a request, at least, not then and there. I see what they have to write about and if I find that they never really joined mylot to participate, they are out.

Hi, All friend request all accepted for me. Even they had 1 post already. After i have approved his/her friend request, then usually start making pm to ask to joined their own bussiness. And for sure, i will make smooth polite answers to make some reasons because i am not interested in any. That's okay, i dont bothered.

I normally accept any friend request I get but there have been a few times when I haven't. In these cases the request came from someone I do not like and who does not like me either so I'm sure there was an alterior motive for the request.

I always accept anyone who request to be friends. What is the problem, why wouldn't you. I don't know anyone on this sight personnely but I don't know why people wouldn't just accept everyone. Unless of course they responded to you in a harsh way or cursed you than I could understand. Happy Mylotting to all!

I have never denied anyone a friend request. I have been fortunate that most of the friends I got are lovely and nobody has tried selling their affiliate or referral links to me so that's been good. I also haven't got a problem with anyone here so that's a bonus..

When there is new friend request, first thing is I check their activity, the number beside their avatar describe their activity on myLot, if they had no activity at all, usually I will deny their request, because I'm afraid that they will spam me.

I usually accept users as friends except the mew users, and the ones that haven't been all that active or have that many posts. It seems like I get a lot of those, and I want to be sure that they won't spam me and doing lots of posting before I accept them. I am pleased that people want to be my friend, but on the same hand, a person has to be so careful as there are very strange people on the internet and if you aren't sure then you shouldn't accept them. Well, good luck to you and happy mylotting.

Well, I approve all friend requests to me and send none. Since I've discovered when I post around many people add me and I've filled my entire friend box on my profile with approved requests. I don't hav any people on myLot I would ignore at the moment so whoever requests can become a online friend of mine. I haven't denied one time yet.

Hey everybody I accept all friend requests. Then if I see people start discussions I think are mean I delete them also if they leave mean comments I will delete them. So far I have not had to delete anyone and I am happy with my mylot friends.
