To me the friends list is meant to be exactly that a list of friends. I would even settle for it being a list of aquaintances, or even people I have talked to once.
So I decided to sort through my list. I started with the 11 pages of pending requests of which I maybe accepted 10.
I haven't gotten around to the people who are already accepted as friends because I was in chat when they added me but that will come soon.
The most shocking thing however was the vast number of people who were in my pending requests who joined sex forums and there last activity was half an hour later.
So did these people create an account, add me as a friend, and then signed off never to return again?
