Should I accept or deny? What are the benefits of having more friends?

I accept anyone who asks, really. It's nice to have some good friends who create interesting discussions. That way you can comment on theirs, and they can comment on yours, and you help each other get more replies to comments. And you know you can always find interesting topics if you go to their page. ^^
