Do you do much "associating" on IBO, and if you don't then why not?

First of all, if you are not associating with the other members, what are doing on IBO?  

I try and associate with every new member that joins IBO.  It's really important to associate with as many members as you can at IBOtoolbox because they are going to help you promote your business and you by engaging in IBOspirit. Think about it, you can't possibly join everyone's business opportunity but you can engage in IBOspirit by sharing your associates' information on your social networks, giving them more exposure and helping them get noticed. If you do this, they in turn will reciprocate and do the same for you!

I recommend setting a goal to associate with at least 10 new members per day.  Once they accept your invite, send them a message through IBO message system with helpful information about IBO such as where they can get training and the webinars.  We want to make sure that everyone gets trained on how to use all the tools and IBO websites, if they don't they will leave and that does none of us any bit of good.  In my message I have a link to a video I recorded welcoming them to IBO.

When you see your associates on the wall, you can like, comment and share their wall posts to show support as well as like, comment and share their press releases and videos. This is what IBOspirit is all about and engaging in IBOspirit is a major traffic generator for IBOtoolbox and helps everyone succeed!

I do associate with other however I am pretty selective of who I associate with as I must be able to offer value to who I choose to associate with and viseversa.

What saddens me is the number of people who click associate or approve your request and send you a copy and paste sales pitch that has no value to you and is very often programs that are illegal here in the US like HYIP programs also known as Rev Share or other pyramid ponzi scams such as direct pay programs where you have to pay 2-5 people separate payments in home 2-5 levels of downline are as ignorant of the law as you are.

This to me is a missed opportunity.

When you build friendships first there will be fewer people who disconnect and you have as much opportunity to learn as you do to share. In most cases it can save you time in a bad program and from losing a ton of money by getting feedback on your offer before sending a sales pitch to someone who will report or block you for it.

People like their ego stroked.

Ask people questions, especially those where their opinion matters and send them a range of articles that regularly meet their interest and if you notice trends among several followers these make great press release post.

Always ask permission before sending a link via private mail, remember that these associates already see your stream post ads, member ads, and get updated when you publish a press release so sending them one more link to your offer is overkill and most of the time just turns them on to tuning you out.

I so agree with you. I write back and say "We could at least kiss first before you pitch me."  You can usually get to know someone pretty well just by their PR's and what they promote and I often check it out to see if it is something I want to be involved with.
Exactly, if they treat you as a human and respect you like you deserve then you are more likely to visit their profile, check out those PR pages, and check those products and offers out.

I love building relationships!

It is amazing how many people still copy and paste spam letters and links to offers instead of building that know, like, and trust.

Who is teaching this garbage?

Kris has a great answer, if you are not on IBO to build, what are you here for?

I hope there is no one out there teaching that garbage!

In my case, My life has gone through some major changes out of necessity since I joined IBO.

I was able to spend much more time online, marketing a few years back, and I had the time to build on those relationships. But sometimes life steps in and I had to go back to 'the 9 to 5' which in reality is more than that. I don't have the time to devote to this like I used to, but I don't just delete my account and abandon all efforts - I participate when I can, and run my ads with the credits I have.

Hoping to be able to switch my life back in the coming years, and if I'm able, at least I won't have to start over!
