...Can we PLEASE get a "don't show friend invitations" option available so people aren't always freaking spamming Phreak and HotshotGG and more with annoying friend requests all the **** time?

It's on the backlog. Thanks for the suggestion.

It's just a bad idea in general to have the friend request system require input from the receiving end of the request. Anyone who is popular or annoys a sufficiently large group can then get bogged down by the massive number of requests. I much prefer the system used by EVE online: you can put someone on your buddylist without permission, but you only get extra info from it if they also put you on their buddy list, to make it mutual. Though in a game where one might have to deal with invites to games, that problem requires a different solution.

A solution I saw in EVE online was this: you have the option to make anyone not on your buddy list have to pay a fee to send messages. There is also an option to automatically reject conversation requests and in game mails from people not on one's buddy list.
