Friend or foe?

For all the fuss people made about the definition of friend when Orkut launched I am now finding it irritating in Flickr that I have to decide whether someone is just an acquaintance or a friend or various other levels of connection.

If it was irritating to some that people who were merely acquaintances appeared as friends I find it uncomfortable that I may be classing someone who thinks of themselves as a friend as simply an acquaintance.

I gave up and just made them all my friends!
