More spamming through abuse of AOL, Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail accounts

Spymac is not the only spammer that abuse people in asking for their webmail credentials to exploit users' address book in a deceptive viral practice. According to this article and comments on Slashdot, you can add Flixster and Facebook to the list. It reminds me that Plaxo used to do that, and that was a strong enough repellent for me to not only use them but bar them from sending me any further message. Those guys play in the same league as spammers, phishers and scammers.
