Default Mysterious Friendship Acceptance

Hello, recently I came online to accept a friend request from FlatOutLie, but when I checked my friends, Brioh was also in my friend's list.

I don't know how this could be. I don't think he ever sent me a friend request or that I accepted it.

Or is it someone who changed his username?

This is strange. Or is my account hacked?

I forget exactly how it works, but there's some glitch related to this that causes automatic friending. See: I'm friends with Anonymous, an account used for guests.

Thumbs up

All you need to do is send a request via somebody's Dumbpage, and then use the forum control panel to alternately accept it. The control panel doesn't consider who sent the request and allows you to independently manage the friend list.

This should be fixed because a bad person can force friend a person

Would that even be worth the effort?Does being someone's friend on here actually do anything?
I suppose if befriending someone also adds them to your contacts list, they could send you a PM even if you have the 'Only receive from contacts or moderators' box ticked.


Even then, though... Nobody here has any issues, so I'd question the usefulness of fixing it versus the effort that'd be required. IIRC Jamul did mention he had plans to revamp the site a bit, so who knows what all that would entail.
