I'm tired of random people wanting to be my friend. How do I block incoming requests? I've looked everywhere but can't find anything. Surely there must be a way..

if you mean block anyone from sending you a request, i don't think you can. but you can block communications from each individual person when they send you the request.

If you're getting FR from this website, write it in big red letter in your sig "I DO NOT TAKE RANDOM FRIEND REQUEST [without message/reason/etc]". Number of member have that sign on their sig, and I think it's really smart idea.

I think he meant that people from this website are sending you FR on XBL.

I leave them in limbo. Dont accept or deny. And after awhile people just delete the request themselves. I did deny them then they would just send another FR haha. Blocking communication is probably simpler (is that even a word?)

That's not really helpful if there is someone who isn't a random trying to be his friend.

I didn't know random friend requests were that common! I don't get any, Lol :p

They are, and they are very annoying. They add you, you accept and then send them a message saying "Hey why you add me?" and they reply "I didn't you added me". It is so frustrating, especially when you are online when they send the request so you have made the turn around in about 1 minute :p.

Well the way to avoid FR's is to fill your list so no-one can invite you. And if you don't want to add the person then go to the message and press x to delete it. You don't have to go to the invite and decline it.

Yeah there's no way you can stop getting them from everyone from what I know. But if you keep getting them and don't want them instead of declining each one, when it pops up in your messages just press X and they will be deleted.

I know how you feel about getting FR's and then sending a message asking who they are and why they added you and then come up with ''don't know you, just wanted to add you'' kinda deal. Its frustrating.
