How NOT to Conduct Business

What’s your worst fear when you go to a social networking site? (Use the comments.)

Mine is that all my information gets uploaded to this internet and I say “goodbye” to anything I wanted to keep private.

Well, thank you, Quetchup (NO! I’m not doing you the service of linking to you!) for making all of those fears come true. From

The issue lies with their “check for friends” form: during signup you’re asked to enter your email address and password to see whether any of your friends are already on the service. Enter the password, however, and it will proceed to mail all your contacts without asking permission.

Ugh. I am disheartened every time there is a “service” to help people and all it does is take a giant step backwards in terms of social responsibility. With so many options out there, you can’t screw up once. When you do, it’s lights out and good night.

Quechup… we hardly knew ye. R.I.P.
