Sooooo, Facebook keeps suggesting I add, as a Friend, a person who is dead.  Which raises a couple of questions:

  1. Assuming no supernatural intervention, who is it that actually Confirms my request to be a friend?  
  2. If I don’t take FB up on its suggestion, is that denying the friendship we had (have)? 
  3. Why, having declined the suggestion several times, does Facebook continue to suggest them as a friend once every couple of months?

I know the answers to these questions, of course.  But as Facebook’s Lifecloud grows, deaths and how they’re handled will inevitably present new challenges for the web platform.
