If it bothers you, well, let me know. A friend recently did the same thing and suggested emailing him to talk about it, so I'll try the same - if it does bug you, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Feel free to defriend me in return, I don't mind.
Oh yeah, while I'm on the topic - feel free to defriend me even if I haven't removed you from my list... another friend has periodic amnesty days, so consider this mine. No hard feelings, no problems, go for it. And you can have a few days to think about it. ;)
Finally, as long as I've gone this far - so for the people I notice who've friended me recently, I'm curious - why? No answer or no reason is fine, just curious. :)
