    let's not go too deep.. somebody might drown.. but getting back to facebook..

    if you get a request from someone with a picture of a friend of yours you will most likely accept the request.. and also accept the comments the person posts as actually being from the pictured person.. wouldn't you?

    ... a little time spent dealing with some of the psychos that play these facebook games taught me to not be so trusting. lol of course, im only on there for the games....but i digress. most folks have sense enough to consider these things before they put their business online....I guess. I'd assume. I'd hope.

    Most of my friends usually give me a heads up, like if I see them around, they tell me they are gonna add me...I rarely have people add me out the blue...and if they do I can usually tell it's them by mutual friends...and I see or talk to most of the people on my fb outside of facebook...so I'm pretty sure it's them..plus I don't have tons of FB friends.
