what does a gray icon with a gray question mark inside mean

I realized I have been seeing this gray icon with a gray question mark inside of it next to one of my contacts and I have feeling she did not remove me or block me cuz she had told me she didn't

I think it may mean that you have indeed been removed from their contact list.  you can open the profile page of that contact to see if the 'resend contact request' option will be presented.

Re: what does a gray icon with a gray question mark inside mean

I have a new contact with the same issue. WHen I open the profile page I am not presented with the usual request to contact or connect as if the profile has not removed me. 

Here is the profile and i really think it it some kind of fake profile:

---capt.phillip.austin1

(another one that made contact with me was a "Capt.Paul RIchardson"- who dropped me :happy: when i told him hes fake.)

Both of these fakers claimed to be with the armed forces. Here is the chat with capt.phillip austin LOL:

[5/22/13 12:20:16 PM] capt.phillip.austin: good [5/22/13 12:20:59 PM] capt.phillip.austin: am Captain phillip austin from US [5/22/13 12:21:22 PM] capt.phillip.austin: but am now in Afghanistan for UN peace keeping mission

am 59 years

i will tell you about my school and birth scripts

I was born in Fort Belvoir, Virginia.I attended Flint Hill School in Oakton, Virginia. I was graduated with military honors from the U.S. Naval Academy with the Class of 1976, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Operations Analysis

I was a 1998 Distinguished Graduate of the National War College. I holds a Master of Arts degree in National Security Studies from Georgetown University, a Master of Science degree in Strategic Intelligence from the National Defense Intelligence College, and a Master of Science degree in National Security Strategy from the National War College

i rescue this boy when i went to sudan for peace keeping mission

he lost his parent and he has no body so i took him as my child i love him so much because i have no family [5/22/13 12:38:13 PM] capt.phillip.austin: he is only one i have now================

 

eyc eyc eyc yada yada yada yad....and he claims he lost his parents and wife in a car accident in France 2010 so he resuces a boy from sudan africa.

then goes on to say he wants someone to help raise the kid.

 

my attitude is like GET REAL! like dont create such an outrageous fake profile. lol
