    Facebook's statement makes no sense. I think I am the only one with like 95% of my FB friends being people I actually know. Many of my friends have 500 to 900 FB friends, which means they are just playing the friend collection game. I know for a fact most of the do not know who 1/2 of those friends are or never met them.

    Cool post!

    I think it's a very gray area: We don't want perverts, thieves, stalkers and so on hovering the internet however, we still need to make these decisions ourselves because we should be aware enough to do so!

    I believe Facebook are fully entitled to do whatever they want with their site. After all, it's their brand, and their image. But this should be a remainder that we don't own our own profiles on facebook, but rather, we use them at facebook's discretion.

    absolutely but just like we are obliged to adhere to Facebook's terms and services, they owe it to us to not be whimsical and self righteous and adhere to their rules as well.
    There is no rule that mentions adding non-friends as a condition for disabling your profile, and if this gray and arbitrary deletion policy of theirs continues it will make the service very unreliable.
