    O.k, i dont get it. Why do people keep trying to add you after you've already hit ignore once? Are they so deluded that they think theres some sort of glitch or you accidently ignored them? Also, im fed up of being called arrogant or whatever just because i dont want to accept some guy i know from school/work that i dont talk to. Just because they feel its necessary to add every person theyve ever met, doesn't mean i want 1000 facebook friends. end of rant.

    You get called arrogant for that? How does anyone even know you rejected some dude?

    Anyway, if they call you arrogant, just pretend you didn't even hear. Let's mentally *block* all loserish comments we hear. A certain degree of irreverence for the opinion of others is becoming more and more necessary to stay sane in this life -facepalm.

    ive had a few people trying to add me multiple times, one of them figured out i ignored them in the end and it was a mate of theirs dishing out the insults. I told them it wasn't anything personal and i liked the guy, i just didnt want him as a facebook friend. didnt go down well!

    edit: deactivated my facebook account earlier - had enough of family snooping without the other annoyances of facebook! ''missing 'insert name' so much r.i.p'' jeez learn some respect guys and pay them a visit if you care instead of publicising it on your facebook!

    I don't think it tells them, I've had people keep adding me and it's a nightmare having to keep on blocking them.

    It happend to me before, I just blocked them in the end. I don't know what goes though their heads, if someone doesn't accept their friend request the first time, what makes them think they're going to accept it any other time?
