Why does this remind me of the fanfic writers who say "I won't post another chapter unless I get 10 good reviews"?

I've been bombarded with e-mails from people I barely know who at some point "friended" me and then nag me to vote for some stupid Facebook promo. I don't even use Facebook. I had it when I worked as a rabbi but now that I'm a full time freelance writer, I have no use for it and have considered dropping the thing all together. Okay, my rant about this business is over. Go ahead and "like" the thing if you feel so inclined. I personally ignore all these requests (again, my personal feeling on the subject and no intention to offend anyone who is a diehard Facebook fan or a die hard fan of this publisher).
P.S. And yes I know, that's a rather odd career path. I'm one of those odd people who has held around 18 different jobs in various industries from computer guru to rabbi to paralegal to teacher and now professional writer. One of these days I'll do a book on the subject

I think perhaps you meant to post this in the Author Self-Promotions forum.

What is an indie author to do but use the networks at his/her disposal to promote his/her work?
Annoys the hell out of me this sort of self-promotion and I won't ever respond to it.
If you don't like it you can just ignore it - you don't need to give the OP a hard time about it.
Sheesh, I'm just so full of contradictions.
