I have a good hundred people who put me on faves lists that I have NEVER seen on the forums or been contacted by.
and I've had an internet stalker who warned off a friend of mine.....and had TONS of info about me that he could only have gotten from POF. :(

Or how about the people you e-mail, then get a "read/deleted" without a response, but then you find out you're on their favorites list?

That's got to be the biggest mixed message I've ever gotten!

Doc, I e-mailed this guy first, and 5 minutes later got the read/deleted message. Then today I go to check who's fav lists I'm on (I needed an ego boost lol) and saw him right there at the top!

But, yeah, like you said. What's with the people who put you on their fav lists but then never contact you? GAH I don't understand people!

Thee have been people that I have added because I like their posts, I like to see what they have to say - really - ALLRIGHT - I'M A STALKER - but I can't email them because of email restrictions I'm ***sobbbbbbbb*** either too old or too far away ...

The favs list has nothing to do with posts or posting. There are people on my list and I on their's who I doubt know the forums exist. I was on two people's lists before I ever checked out the forums..


Is it still paranoia if they really are out to get you?

I just went through and deleted my name off of the fav lists of people I have no idea who they are!!! It gives me the creeps to be on someone`s fav list you have never even heard of!!! Delete, delete, delete!!!!!

I've done that myself. The numbers start creeping up with people you don't know or never hear from. I remove myself from lists frequently.

I have folks on my favs list that I like to read their posts...always funny...odd but otb you know you are one of them hehe. :) And I am on fav's lists and I don't know some of the folks...but if they are forum buddys I have found that they will email me first and tell me they like my posts and ask if they can add me. That's happened several times.

On the flip...I have a few folks who I decided not to go out with who lurk and read all of my posts...you can tell when they email you minutes after you post something about your personal life all kinds of pissed. Weird eh?

Longte, when you click on the favorites button, there's an option along the top of the screen that says "who's favorites list am I on". Click on that and it'll show you.

I went through and deleted a bunch that I'd never talked to today too. Who knows the minds of some people?

Just a note for all of you... if you go to google and type in your screen name from here and do a search... EVERY single thing you have posted will return in the search...

So... getting stuff from here is not all that hard... I don't think the emails show up... but... the posts sure do...

I sometimes put a girl on my fave list just because I think she is pretty, and so I will be able to see when she is online and maybe talk to her someday.
I don't consider that stalking.
