    Hum. As far as I know, we've always been able to send/receive mail with people not on our friends list and I personally like that. I send "sales receipts" to people who make large purchases on my vendors. I'm sorry you got some Spam, Alley Oop. Hopefully it wasn't from me!

    Yeah, it is the design as of right now and it has been this way. If it becomes an issue we will address. For now, we have a pending task for a future release.

    Could we do a poll to see how many people want it changed to mail friends only? I’d be curious if I’m a minority here.

    the thread i pulled the lb quote from had several ideas for mitigating the problem. it does not have to be on/off.
