Do you find all those "add requests" from X-rated sites annoying?

As a daily user of the networking site MySpace, I am always checking my message box to see if any of my friends has sent me a comment or a note, or if I have any "add requests" from real and interesting people. Sometimes I get what I'm looking for, but many (far too many) times I receive add requests from what seem to be really hot young women (some barely over 18) from my area. I'm not an automatic-adder, so I always check the profiles. Lo and behold! 9 times out of 10 I get these that say that "she's" from Miami, Flevoland (wherever that is) and that she has pics that are TOO HOT for MySpace and is trying to earn cash for college by posing nude for a webcam site. And lately, these ads also trigger off a "download a MySpace adult content viewer" ad, which I never click on. I find these ads a nuisance and never, ever add any; sometimes MySpace deletes the requests before I do because it detects the spam, and sometimes I delete them myself. It's a waste of time that I could easily solve by going private, but I like keeping my MySpace public. Do any other MySpacers have anything to say to this issue? Do you ever look at the sites the ads want you to see? Or do you delete them right away?

Yeah, its pretty annoying. I don't check my Myspace all that often and sometimes by the time I check the friend request the person has already been kicked off Myspace.

Yes. Those "this profile has been deleted" boxes do get annoying, but at the same time reassuring because at least MySpace wants to retain good members, if for nothing else than good PR.

Actually, I've never had any requests from X-rated sites, luckily!! But I get plenty of band requests though.

I don't let it bug me. I remember the AOL chatroom hubbub back in the day, so now it's Myspace's turn. Delete them, and don't let them ruin the good that is Myspace. Myspace allows bands, artists, and others to connect with an international audience, to market their stuff in a true free market, and get a chance to make it, whereas they otherwise may never be heard of!

I also find this annoying. I find most adds on myspace annoying, as most of them are just spam. I do go through them and check them out though, because sometimes they are that long lost friend from high school.. but it is still annoying to go through all of these profiles daily.
