It’s they way in which they scrape information from people’s gmail address books via their Upscoop service that particularly repels me; particularly the broken promises about not emailing or contacting any email address obtained from address books, and not handing over email addresses to partners.

Scary, yes. But it just gripes me that if you rate someone then the expectation is they'll rate you back. The default of "ethical" behavior is judgment instead of leaving people alone and unmolested.

Yeah. It it sort of freaky. Like I said to you before it found a MySpace account I didn't remember I had registered.
