"Has anoyne ended up on someone favs list fo absolutely no reaon at all? Like they Lurk in the forums and never post, but seem to follow what you post" Thing is that just because we don't know the reason, doesn't mean there isn't one. I put one guy on my favs list for because of a pic he had that was just the funniest thing I'd ever seen....I don't think the whole favs list is a big deal at all. It's really just a way of "marking" a profile, some places have friends lists, buddy lists....same thing. I haven't had anyone do a creepy stalker thing so far.

I haven't paid much attention to who's got me on their favorites list. Once in awhile, I'll get some random wierd or invasive e-mail from a total stranger who's been reading what I post on the forums. It's strange.

Turns out her profile is an advertisement for ifriends. If you email her, you get this:

"Heya,

Got your message on the site, thanks. I liked your profile so I
thought I'd email you directly… they don't make talking on these
personal sites easy, do they?

But listen, I need to apologize in advance 'cause my studies keep me
quite busy but I do like chatting
online when I have the time.

If you're up for it, drop by my own home page. I've added some pics
and if I'm around, we can chat from there. I do webcam too so
you'll need a chat name. Anyway, thanks again for the message. Hope
to see you online.

i too have some people that have me on their fav list that i've never talked to. just for sh*ts and giggles i went to who loves me and i saw where several people had me on their list, so i added them to mine. i figured maybe one day we might actually talk.

I had a a bunch on my Who Loves Me list that I never heard from, nor had they ever posted. So I instituted a new policy: No more Who Loves Me. I don't allow anyone to put me on that list and I don't do it to anyone else. Feels better.

Why would someone put someone on the fav list to stalk them, when they can just do a search? I haven't figured out what a fav list is for really, other than a book mark of friends, or someone you want to contact later maybe.

I much prefer IM to email.

I suppose the more you post the higher the chance someone will look at what your saying. As far as number of views on a post they always seem to run close to 10:1 views to posts, with the exception of sex and dating which due to some off color topics gets as high as 20:1.

I'm liked by two people myself and i don't even know them. their profiles show their straight though....what a bummer. But, I do wish I had a stalker though.......it would make me feel kind of wanted,..no? Anyways, when I get crank calls I say, "Hold on let me get a Cigarette!"

It might be POF doing it to help us feel more incouraged.

33 to be exact

it doesnt necessarily freak me out though. I think of it somewhere you can store a profile to get the time and courage to contact them

Also it helps me keep track of who my friendly emails are...etc....lots of different nics can get confusing....someone here said 'bookmark' and I think thats a good word for it

There would have to be a bit more activity than that to for me to feel stalked though.

Ps Im not being a smart---ss but this a legitimate question: how can you tell is someone is lurking in the forums but arent posting? do you mean they contact you to talk about your posts or something????

I don't like to play favorites, so try and stalk everybody equally.

It's fun to click on a profile, then see the profiles of the area they are in above them, then start clicking on those and see how many people it will cycle through. Or see they've said something of interest in a thread I've missed and backtrack to check it out

Wow, I really do have no life! Ack, time to break out another album.
