Slang Gang Word of the Day

inbox rot

To neither accept, nor decline a friend request from someone on Facebook or Myspace. Used in situations when you don't want to accept someone's friend request, but you also don't want to be rude by declining them.

Dude, that jerk friend of my girlfriend just sent me a friend request on Facebook. He's getting the inbox rot.

Love this one!!
Could be applied to all those other requests that we get on FB......pillowfights, lil green patches, etc.

I heart this one.

Although I must admit all the other requests just get a big fat ignore.

Pedaling said...

i hit decline and ignore all the time...so people know when i do that?
oh, dear.
guess i'll just have to let them inbox rot from now on.

Wow I've been doing this for months and never knew it. I'm pretty good with the "friend" requests becuase I have so few of them but all the kidnapping,pillow fighting and stuff is definately and inbox rot. I think I have 90 some odd of those. Thanks for putting a name to my behavior. Hee hee.
