I know this isn't about comics but I'm curious if anyone else gets friend requests from people that only have: 1) Greek letters in their profile 2) have either very few or no books in their profile or 3) their profile is private?

I always took this as fake accounts trying to get to my "friends" list. Anyone else have this problem? Or know more about what people are trying to do?

I'd hate to disregard someone trying to actually become a friend...

I haven't gotten a all Greek letters friend request yet. I do have several from random people I don't know. I do also see authors trying to build a following friend requests show up every once in a while.

Donovan | 1154 comments Haven’t had any of those. But I abhor getting constant recommendations for things that I have no interest in.

Same her Donovan. I'm getting spam by book called The Bride Stripped Bare By Her Bachelors.

Donovan | 1154 comments LOL. I get lots of Warcraft or Witcher fantasy recommendations. Sorry, not a fan.

I've had a couple personal messages from authors to "read my book", asking for genuine feedback.

Then quite a few invites to different "groups" to talk about books.

I guess I need to take some time to try and translate some of these profiles of the friend requests I'm getting. Some I can tell that they are actually reading books, others have empty profiles except the Greek text.


Fluffyroundabout | 202 comments I don’t have any of these problems, probably due to my terrible inactivity.

Creative Orange (Rumell Khan) (rkrespectedmember) I wouldn't mind if people have had there names with greek letters. Nor I wouldn't mind if they didn't have any books on their shelves, Nor would I mind if they were set to privete.
