This is not hacking any more than someone walking up to you on the street, asking you for your keys, then taking your car for a joyride is theft. Sure, you may not want the person driving your car, but then, why did you give them your keys? It's the same concept here, your public information is just that and anything else, you need to give the person permission to see. If said person ends up being a government agent and you get nailed, maybe you should have taken the friend request under more careful consideration.

No man is an island if he's on at least one mailing list.
