    Talking so what's the deal with "friends"

    what's up with the friends list anyway?
    what does it mean?
    are there any benefits?
    do we have to exchange cards and presents on birthdays and christmas?

    Dave, as I understand it, If you send a friend invite, you are in charge of providing Christmas gifts to whoever accepts your invitation.

    so is there an unspoken social obligation to bestow rep points?

    That little groan you hear is the sound of 100 ODD members biting their tongues.

    For Internet purposes, it's an option in the user profile. Over on the right hand side. I think it means something if you use Facebook and Myspace, but I have no idea what purpose it serves on these forums.

    Still, I'd hate for either of us to feel left out, Vince, so I'm going to send some 'friend requests' around right away! I figure I'll send to everybody who's not on my 'ignore' list. That should take almost a whole minute to do.

    The statement about missing the GD forum was spot on in my case. I think I have only gone into the forum since it happened. I don't think I am the only one looking around in here wishfully either. New thread coming your way; the tie in, so that I am not high jacking, is that maybe we can put everyone who is reading this on our friends list.

    Umm...


    Err....


    Nope. No snappy comeback.

    I think I read something you posted about bears on another thread, then replied to ret25yo using your username. That'll teach me to surf the forums with both kids tugging on my sleeves and dinner on the stove in the other room.

    On the other hand, it made about as much sense as skipper sinking chatting about his baby pics. Did I miss something there?

    homerdave, et al.,

    Funny thread!
    I have wondered the same, on other forums, and still looking for the 'friends with bene's' as you stated!

    I mean, how does one feel if they get 'rejected' as a friend?
    Setting us up for disappointment, I say...

    Or, if everyone pigpiled to be everyone's friend... sheeesh!

    Thanks for the laugh!
