Probably. :D
Sorry. I thought it was funny to say that!

Maybe people have joined the site to make friends and you look like a friendly face? I've no idea!

Makes you wonder why they are requesting you as a friend if they haven't been here even a day. :eek:

Apparently you're not the only one. I never found it annoying, though.

No, I never really had a problem with that...the constant PMs from people who want me to send money or call them or whatever are my digital pet peeves...

I will get both friend requests and private messages from newbies, I agree it can be a bit annoying if I haven't interacted with them at all. I usually reject them out of hand.

I've found that those who pm people on their first day are more often looking for something than participating here.

I had that recently happen to me too. I also had a problem in the past of someone sending me PM’s asking for money, so I usually just reject the incoming friend request if they have only been on here a short while and I have never heard of them before.

I was talking to another user about this the other day and I make a general rule that if one, they don't post anything, then I'm sorry you don't get an accept request from me. Second, if you are new and not referencing anything I posted or my profile correctly then that's an automatic disqualification. I will often tell the person that I'm flattered but out of protection, it makes me uncomfortable and so I decline and I would enjoy getting to know them in the forums first before accepting anything. I guess, it doesnt bother me, but I do feel bad for them and I do say a little prayer that God reveals himself and delivers them from their troubles

I find it a little irritating when people keep on asking if they can send me some money.
