Regarding friend requests:
It's being brought to my attention that I need to clarify my criteria for friends. Before I add anyone to my 'friends' list, I feel an old-fashioned literalist's need to actually know the party in question, at least to some degree. So I will not accept friend requests from anyone - however interesting you may seem - unless we've made an acquaintance through one another's work beforehand.
Invite me to review your work; review mine. Catch me on one of the (few) fora I frequent. That's as close to an introduction as WeBook tends to permit, and it'll give us a chance to decide whether or not 'friends' is the appropriate definition for our relations.
This is neither a judgement on anyone's character (except maybe mine) nor on anyone's work.
