Quechup Can't Cut the Mustard

I got my invite to Quechup today from Euen, who says the newbie-social-site spammed his address book AFTER he deleted his account. Been reading several folks who had bad-quechup-spam experiences today. Which leads me to this question:

Is there a dumber move than for a social network to use the uber-anti-social approach of spamming users' address books to get folks signed on?

Can you think of a stupider PR approach than to steal a play out of plaxo's old playbook and bug the shit out of busy people?

I mean, other than perhaps using a seizure-invoking "join us" logo?
