This is somewhat common. People with FB pages that have the button for "add friend" but no button for "message." Most of these people are are either neurotically private or want control on who they'll accept/reject without an accompanying message. What do you think of this?

I think your complaint is unduly harsh.

I use Facebook to share pictures with my friends. I communicate with them on the phone or via email. I don't want my Facebook account to balloon into another time-waster.

You missed the point. Obviously, if you have an incoming friend request, it involves your "time" to react to it. Some might be accompanied by a message. I prefer to send/receive them that way. Obliterating the incoming message feature is more arrogant than not.
