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.
awts that's a bad idea gaining friends But not seriously instead to become linux guru. huh!!! me i dont care to become linux guru i just love to comment in someones forum/Opinion on different ideas specially about linux.
kick those fatty ass of people that doing that.
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 :)

I agree with you kon the guru status, I would rather help other linux users solve their problems thank be stuck up linux elitist!
It's to bad that there are people that feel compelled to do that for something as insubstantial as "Guru" points. I would hope that people are here to gain friends and acquaintances to build community and friendships.
I have only had one to ask, and I added or was added. Nothing has happened since.
I've had some that were reasonable requests that I granted, and others that were blatant phishing expeditions (spam)! There should be a prominent button when one receives such a request, to alert the moderators that the sender is violating the TOS of the site.
