Facebook Noob Dealing With One Major Contradiction

Sun May 01, 2011 8:29 pm

So I was blocked from sending any friend requests for a couple days.. in essence, Facebook lectures its users on the rudeness of sending friend requests to someone they might not know —all the while spamming them silly with unwanted advertisements— and suspends basic privileges for having the audacity to dare meet someone new on a social networking site.. Does this tick off anyone else out there, or am I alone in my disgust?

Really? I have never been aware of that. And I have added quite a few people I had no obvious association (school, home town,...) with. Perhaps someone you tried to add reported you and facebook put a ban on you for that reason?

I'm sure you are. I get the feeling you got reported by many of your "friends".

That's what ad-block is for

Chill the freak out its just a stupid website. It's not meant for spamming random people with friend requests. Give it a rest.

My point was the hypocritical double standard but many thanks for the unsolicited advice.

Glad you showed up cuz I was planning to counter such despicable behavior with vigorous litigation.
