The True Meaning of Friends Lists

I read a very interesting journal post by a fellow SPPf denizen concerning the friends list.
Before reading this, I never turned down friends requests. I figured it wasn't such a big deal, and I thought I might as well make the newbies feel good. There was that one time I removed a user who was solely doing it to increase his count, but that was a rare occurrence. Now I have begun to reconsider what the friends list really meant, and I decided to prune my SPPf friends list of people that put me on the list for the heck of it. If it was real life, I would prefer a few friends I actually know and trust rather than simply a whole bunch of them that are connected superficially to me, and the list should be the same. I feel that people should be able to remove people from the list without feelings of ill-will towards either side, just as friends drift apart in real life. Besides, if you really only cared about having a huge list of friends, what's one less to you?
In conclusion, think about what the friends list means to you.
