There's a Family Guy character that describes you.... I just can't figure out which. OR Anyways, on to the thread. I agree with the rule. While it doesn't necessarily work like that in the real world, it's a nice rule to have in place to prevent people from being too persistent with it. Because with persistence comes the tendency to delve into "quid pro quo" sexual harassment and other illegal workplace practices that your employer has to worry about due to the EEOC (Not mine, ironically. They have less than 15 employees so they're exempt). With this rule in place, the potential/alleged harassment gets stopped immediately with very little work for Facebook's labor attorney to worry about. Anything passed the initial "Sorry but my calendar's booked until you give up" rejection is automatically sexual harassment, and makes it easy to differentiate between " innocent playful non harassment" to "creepy harassment." Thus, easy to fire you once you realize that she's not really that busy and you're just a creepy idiot. TL,DR: This rule was created to make it easier to fire people for sexual harassment and save money in arbitration and legal fees for labor attorneys.
