It really really pains me to admit it but I have just blocked an absolutely gorgeous woman on Facebook. The friend request came in out of the blue and thinking she must be a friend of a friend I took a look.
This woman was highly attractive and had some very sexy photos in her profile. I have to say I left the invitation to friendship on the screen for a minute or two but then took the plunge and blocked her. She must have been a very lonely person – only had thirteen or so Facebook friends, three of who were clearly the same person with different accounts. I would have liked to have had the option of “block and report spam” but it was either one of the other so I just went for the former.
I shudder to think what I might have been letting myself in for had I accepted the request. Caveat Emptor.
One reply on “I just blocked someone on Facebook – one of those easy decisions but nevertheless painful”
Personal information farming. Spammers make a fake account and then send out mass invite requests. Those who accept expose their details to the spammers and allow their net to be expanded.
