Call me a noob, but I don't understand why these emails get sent. I've seen a 
few of them around on email lists. It seems to be that either someone uploads 
their entire addressbook to a random website (doesn't seem like a clever idea) 
or else gives the website their email password (very bad idea).

What gives?
