February 1, 2007 3:27pm CST
I have just seen a user (male) can't give his name but here is a hint it is the same as a famous female singer who just adopted an African baby and the same as the mother of Jesus. Who has 2308 friends!!! Why? How could he be a friend and answer their discussion what does he want with so many. He doesn't have many points. Does he get paid extra????????

I do not get it, for some it seems to be a cool thing to have so many friends, although they hardly never post to their discussions. It makes no sense to me. I use my friends wisely and to the best I can, to have great conversations as well as make money. Others just seem to find a new hobby of collecting friends.

Actually, he once had 2309 friends but I removed myself. I've removed myself from the lists of a number of "friends" who were clogging my friends discussions area and preventing me from finding the discussions of the friends who actually give me a response or two. When it came to the point that I had reponded to their discussions several hundred times without ever once having a response in return, I got out the axe and started chopping the list. These "friends" don't want friends. They want an audience. I'm planning on cleaning out some more in the next week or so.

Apparently he is just using them to answer his discussions and there's no way that he can do the same for them .. Some people may think it's 'cool' to have a big list of friends, I see people starting discussions about it like a 'milestone' or something .. "Wow I just reached 200 friends today!" .. so what? I even saw someone saying "I want to have 500 friends so they respond to my discussions" .. And what's in it for them? give me a break.. friends are supposed to be friends, no one can have 200 friends in real life and even remember their names!

If they were answering his discussion his points would perhaps be higher and if he was answering their dicussion his points would be sky high.

I feel the same as you. Apparently he just wants these friends so he can use them. By using them I mean, having them reply to his posts while he apparently doesn't reply to theirs. How could he?

Hey , I didn't think of that. MAybe I should invited everyone so they can respond to my discussion, less work. No, I'm only kidding. I enjoy responding to posts. It's not like you make a ton of money here. I can't seem to get people to respond to my refferals so I make not much here to think much of the cash flow.

I am on his friends list, he does not ever seem to respond to my discussions. He does also seem interested in networking, and maybe that is what he wants to do with his friends list. This, however, is not the "friend" I posted about. Finlander60 figured that guy out.

FYI to everyone. I was told that if we post someone's screen name in this context, that is in a critical manner, it is grounds for us to be censored, or removed. Let a word to the wise be sufficient, I quit posting the names of spammers, although I will send them pm.

I am aware of this why do you think I DIDN'T put the name in my topic.

HAHAHA! I know who you're talking about, and I'm really pissed of by him/her(I don't know his/her gender, I think a B.I.)LoL. He even invited me and added me as his friend, I even answered some of his posts and he did nothing for me in return. But that's okay for me, I don't expect him participating at my discussions. He just might mess things up on my topics!;) He must have neede money badly, that's what I think.. Just ignore him, I feel sorry for what he's doing.

i can't talk in his behalf because i don't know him, but what i can tell u for sure is that the number of friends doesn't increase someone's earnings just by being in the list. if they reply to each other's disscusions then yes. but what i can tell u from my own experience is that everytime i get a friend request i feel bad to reject that person. so if i were to ever get 2000 requests i will probably approve them all. i won't be able to check everyone's disscusions (i barely keep up with them now) but i will try to check them out from time to time.

Hi White, He is my friend, too. It's ok to have many friends when you are involved in business world. He is a nice guy and polite. If he can interact with others well then it is to his advantage to have many friends to do MLM online business as he can recruit many downlines members. Be happy . SMILE :D

Having so many friends here doesn't matter at all. There's no limit for us to accept and invite friends. And if it's Madonna you are talking about. Well, tell us her username and i'll invite her.

Wow - 2308! He cannot possibly keep track of so many. I guess, as someone else said earlier, he likes to have them just so they reply to is posts, and he does not have to do so much work! Well, each to their own I suppose!

Well, that is how come I find it odd about these so-called friends requests, where you become "friends" but don't even communicate. It does not make sense. I think am purging the list! lol
