Extreme Friending

What is this method by which some people seem to be able to do bulk friending? I've been friended by several people now who seem to be interested in nothing beyond how many people they can friend all at once, regardless of whether you are actually someone of ANY interest to them. It's mildly annoying, and on the order of spam - if it gets more common and frequent it will be REALLY annoying, as I like to check out anyone who appears to have friended me, and now it seems that is a waste of time. ... then, there's the cry wolf factor - I can't ignore everyone; therefore I might miss someone of _real_ interest. Mostly, I want to know how they're doing it and whether this relates to the issues discussed in the petition in my previous post.
