IF U DUNNO ME, PLZ DON'T ADD ME

ok..
just a few days back....a friend of mine..(girl) had put up a beautiful pic of hers...on orkut...
n just like many guy friends would usually do..:D
i also sent a creepy scrap to mock her ...
something like - "hi bootiful...i wants ur franship...can we becomes a frands or not? i waitingggg dear...plssss reply karo na..plsssss" i think..

anyway..that was when it struck me...
i've seen this thing on many of my friends' orkut profiles...and others' profiles too...mostly, on girls' profiles only...

in the "about me" section....they write -
"if u dunno me...plz don't add me...i m least interested in making 'fraandship' with strangers..."

Question to such galz - I m curious..n really wanna kno :) - does it really help??? i mean...do ppl actually refrain from sending "frandship" requests on seeing this line??

AND...to those people who send the new-age, "different", friend requests ...
yeah....gone are the days of "simple" friend requests like -
"hi dear..can u plz my frand?" , "hi babe..i think u look hot...wanna date me?? i dont smoke or drink or dope... scrap me back..'ll b waitin 4 u..." and so on...

these days...friend requests are usually augmented by a concise explanation about the very purpose of friendship...and its beauty...its essence...and how it shld be felt..and its joy shld be perceived ...blah blah blah....

for e.g.

"hi dear...i m a software engineer..working at XYZ....u might've seen many requests like this...but believe me...i m different...God himself has claimed that friendship is the best thing in this world...and its whole beauty and joy lies in opening our hearts out, discovering more and learning more about one another...so..come dear...let us become friends, let us experience and feel the joy in knowing about one another..for life is all about making friends n sharing happiness...plz do reply dear...u may call me up at 9999999999"

ok..i cudnt make it creepier..:)...but i guess...that is bcoz i've not screwed up the english...:D...
anyway...to all you guys...who send such theorized, philosophized,"shaastram"fied requests....:)

do girls actually accept ur request if u send hi-fi stuff like this? :D

awaiting ur replies,
ashwin

PS:
1. No offense to software engineers..:D..but i just tried to make the request sound a bit "realistic" :D...( 70% of such requests i've seen being with "i m a software engineer" :D )..
2. To the best of my knowledge, God didn't claim that friendship is the best thing on this earth :D...I made it up!! Even if he did, it is just a coincidence...and a remarkable one!! :)
3. to whoever's cell number is 9999999999 - sorry sir/madam.....i didn't intend to give out ur number in public...i just thought...there can't be a more impossible phone number than this...
plz don't blame me if u start receiving crank calls n all...i m not repsonsible! :D
4. same thing with the company XYZ....assume it as fictional.....if a company called XYZ exists..then..it is a coincidence :D...I did not mean to comment on employees of XYZ :D....
