Default VM Messages Might be Used for Scams from a Sig

I've noticed this a lot: VM or PM me to give _______ ________!
I slowly realized that some people might do it just to get noticed and get friends and more VM's than some people on WI. Do you feel the same way or differently?

I agree that people do it just to get to know other people, but I honestly don't see a problem with this.

I do NOT think it is a "scam" in any way.

I think people are just looking for more friends with this, and I see absolutely no harm in it! I can understand where you are coming from, however.

I love it. I think it's such a cute and creative way to "invite" people to visit you.

When people say that I kind of feel flattered because, to me, they're asking if we can be friends.

I think I see what you mean.. but like everyone else says, I see no harm. It is a cute way to make new best friends, though I've never answerd any of those! xD I am too busy when I see them.. but no I don't find this a scam. If other people do see it a scam to make more friends, they can put it in their siggie too! xD

I think it's okay for people to do this, but I don' t think they should be posting on profiles saying "Hey! PM me to give _____________ __________________ But I do see what you mean.

I actually think it isn't all that bad. I mean, people do it perhaps they just want to have more friends and more conversation with others. There's no harm in it, and I don't think there's any scamming involved. It's also quite cute and it's nice to just keep track and have a goal.

Anyways, thanks for posting your thoughts and opinions.
