Don't you think the site would be better if there was an option to set the user status? Whenever I enter the site, I get a lot of messages and I have the options to simply ignore it (which is rude) or write to everyone I'm not here to talk at the moment - because Ijust logged in to check my messages or read discussions or whatever.
There should be a chance to let everyone know whether the user is busy or free to talk.
Katariina, you can go to your Account Settings / Privacy and then you can "turn off" the messages and/or friend requests...
but it would be better to have some faster option :)
