Turn Off Friend Requests

For whatever reason, I'm getting many friend requests on this site and it's never been a problem until now. I'd like EP to consider a turn-on and turn-off button for friend requests. Lately, I've been getting a lot of friend requests from red-dot members and sometimes their profile pics tell it all about them while some are actually nice. It's complex but right now, I seem to have more "friends" than I can handle and I'd like to start cleaning out my circle sometime soon. So, EP consider it.

I like your idea on the turn on & off button. I have stated on my profile, I do not accept friends request at the moment and people still add me.

If someone is sending a friend request it is often a good idea to check out the size of their circle. If everyone under the sun seems to be in that circle then you have a pretty good idea that they value quantity over quality when it comes to friendships.

You do have the option, under account settings, to prevent adult members from contacting you. If you turn on this option and are still receiving these messages/friend requests, please let me know.

I Iike it - you would have a profile setting where the "circle this person" link wasn't showing.

But you never know who might want to be your friend, what if they're worth it? <br />
Cleaning up a bit might be useful though.<br />
One piece of advice. Make sure one experience with feminism in it appears among your first experiences, that will frighten away the worst cases.
