How to Get Facebook to Stop Suggesting

Among social media tool Facebook's helpful features is that it allows you to cross-reference your list of email contacts to see who's on Facebook. It then gives you the opportunity to add your choice of these contacts. If you don't provide a definitive "Yes" or "No" the first time, however, Facebook keeps "suggesting" you add friends you passed up the first time, something it continues doing until you adjust your settings otherwise.
