Just curious. Such a waste of time?

If a member fails to respond to multiple transactions their account will be placed on Hold so that they get no more offers or requests until they come back and attend to their account. Repeating the behavior could get their account closed.

If another member doesn't respond, the book is taken off their WL and they'd have to go back to the end of the line if they really want the book.

The Not Now button was added to try and cut down on these books timing out. Not Now will put the book on Hold until you manually change it.

It's very frustrating, but just repeat the mantra "I am helping to weed out inactive members".
