I heard that Plaxo are doing something with openID. So I thought I would check it out. They didn't like my password, and wanted me to turn on web access in the Outlook Toolbar. So much later I seem to have an account and web access. I'm wandering round setting things up and importing my linkedin contacts when a message comes on the screen.

We've sent birthday requests to all your contacts.

Oh, bugger.

I really, really, really didn't ask them to do that.


And frankly there are so many dead ends, inconsistencies and bugs in the system that I won't be going back. As far as I'm concerned Plaxo may still be a useful utility but it's still the same old spam system we know and hate.
