Further to my outburst about Plaxo, and the suggestion that people you don’t know can add their contacts to your Outlook address book without your permission, I’m pleased to see that someone from Plaxo has added their comments (at the bottom of that posting).
I’ve also received a more detailed response from someone in Plaxo’s privacy department, which I shall go through and summarise in a later posting. Suffice to say I’m not yet convinced of the argument that it’s a simple question of the user’s (i.e. my) error. I’ll explain later; it’s not a simple issue. But thanks, Rikk, for taking the trouble to add your comments.
