Bill Dennis came by to help[ me better understand Facebook. I believe I erroneously turned many people away who wanted to be friends on my site.
If you are one or know someone who I didn't "confirm" please contact me again, if still interested. I also plan to do more reading and posting on Facebook in the future.
Sorry for offending some. It was through my ignorance of how the system worked and partly because I had a lot of problems with this site that Bill also helped me clear up.
