Dave Stone: "Plaxo Release Email Addresses"

Stephanie just DMed me on Twitter, linking to Dave's post about how Plaxo appears to be releasing user's email addresses.

My gut feeling towards Plaxo is the same as the one I have for Real (RealVideo, etc.) -- I just don't feel a sense of trust because of how they behaved in the past. I was giving Plaxo a second chance since people told me they'd changed, etc., but -- really -- I'm on way too many social networks and I don't need my email address being wantonly exposed around the web by some third party.

Needless to say, I just deleted my account using the Plaxo account deletion page.
