Facebook Friend suggestions: Threat or Menace?

Pardon a brief grouse, but making 20 suggestions of people I should friend on Facebook is *not* a service to me. It is doubly not a service when 19 of those people are folks I don't know from Adam, just completely random people in the club who happen to be on Facebook. I'm loose about who I friend, but I do require that I at least have *met* someone before I friend them.

(The thing that's particularly making me cranky is that now half those people have sent me friending requests because of this. I can easily just delete and ignore the suggestions, but it always makes me twitch to have to ignore a direct friend request, even if it's somebody I don't know. But I refuse to let my flist get *that* out of control...)
