Facebook Friends Overload!!!

by BlueSuedeShoes / October 21, 2009 5:18 AM PDT

Alright, I'm a bit of a n00b with Facebook, not a total one but about 50% n00b.

The long story short is I've got over 3,000 friend requests in Facebook at the moment, growing by leaps and bounds daily. The ignore all feature on Facebook doesn't seem to work, nor does

Does anybody have any suggestions about how to get revenge on all these requests?

Thanks y'all!

I wish! At east if I was a spammer, I'd be getting paid for my annoyance. I got sucked in to mafia wars for a while and when my mafia hit critical mass their friends and their friends started sending's snowballed out of control!

Yes yes, I know...lesson learned.

I was a daily player for a while with well over the 500 member active limit. I was closer to 1200-1300 members (even though only 500 were active).
