We’ve all been there. Stuck in a dilemma of whether or not to accept friend requests on Xbox Live.
Do I know this person? Why does he or she want to be my friend? Is it something I said?
Personally, my Xbox Live friends list is comprised exclusively of real friends. People I actually talk to in places not called Xbox Live, with 3 celebrity exceptions.
Anyway, a wonderful flow-chart, found at GameSpy, explains just how to go about deciding whether to confirm or deny the incoming request. Have a look, and let us know if it makes any sense to you.
