What does the + mean behind a username?

    When I look for instance at the Recent Visitors of my profile, some of them have a + behind their username and others don't.

    What does that mean?

    I've been puzzling on it for a while and I still can't figure it out.

    I believe it indicates that the user in question is one of your designated "friends".

    Hmm, just checked.
    Right now I have a visitor with a + who is not a "friend"...

    EDIT: Oh wait, the visitor is on my list of "contacts"!
    That must be it!
    Thanks! :)

    Hoot,

    If you break friendship with them, does the + become a minus - ?!!@@ :wink:
