My profile seems to be adding people to friends without me adding them. There's lots of them as well. Like about 10-20 new ones every time i sign on. Different ones each time. I've removed them 3 times now. What gives, anyone know?

This problem happened a while back too, not to everyone, but there were a couple of people who reported it here.  Trouble is it's the weekend, and you're unlikely to get any proper help or answers before the next working day, whenever that might be.  The other problem is that when it happened before, the people involved were asked to NOT delete the new 'friends' until the 'tech team' can have a look and see who's been added.  I would advise you to remove any photos you don't want to be seen by just anyone, and hopefully it will be sorted after the weekend.

Bloody worrying that this is happening again, and worth people checking their own list.  This is a clear breach of data protection - sharing your private photos with unknown people without your permission.  If it happens to me I will put a complaint in, and I'm making a note of this as evidence Cupid has had previous issues that should already have been sorted.

Hi. Could you tell me are you removing your friends from this page http://www.benaughty.com/friends.asp ?
It would be great if you provided a screen name of a member you haven't actually added as a friend but you see them on your friends list. Please send me a private message.
I'll ask the tech guys to look into it then.
