Random people asking to be added as friends

Link to this post 21 May 09

Has anyone else had people they don't know asking to be added as a friend? I suspect this may be to do with acquiring Guru points.

Yes. I check their profiles and look around the site to try and judge somewhat who/what they are, then I make my decision.

The random people are in most cases just trying to obtain guru points. In my case I only admit people as my friends when they have given me a reason to respect their knowledge and actions.

I'm the same way. I only add real guru's as friends. Their Blogs and profile are what interest me. I'm on Linux.com to make friends that know Linux and can help me and in turn I try to offer what I know where I can.

I don't care about "Guru" status. I know my skills, and I think most people that are real Guru's don't care either :)
