Is Facebook still spoofing friend requests?

is from a long time ago, and Facebook doesn't appear to conform to the behavior described in the best answers any longer.
My specific circumstance is that Facebook is telling me of friend requests from people I barely know and, in one case, someone who I believe may not actually want to get in touch with me again. How (in January 2013) can I tell between someone who actually wants to get back in touch and someone who Facebook has decided I should get in touch with regardless of any past drama?
Please no "if you don't want to friend them, don't friend them" answers. I honestly believe people can change—including hopefully me—and the fact that I don't want to upset someone by erroneously contacting them on Facebook is proof.
