"Give me your gmail password, find your friends"

So there are all these sites that ask for my Google/Hotmail/Yahoo password, so they can scrape my addressbook and discover who of my friends and contacts is also on their system.

But they don't actually let me upload a vcard or CSV file of contacts to do the same thing.

So very stupid, twice over.

Plus now, they should just be able to ask for my livejournal/facebook/mysql/FOAF URLs, and walk my contacts lists that way.

So, stupid, three times over.
