It seems that StumbleUpon can connect to your Gmail account and auto-magically connect you with those that have StumbleUpon accounts. I thought that was cool so I did it. I didn’t realize that it was also sending invites to all those in my address book that weren’t on StumbleUpon.
Since I have 419 random emails in Gmail, I feel I just spammed hundreds of people. SORRY!! I didn’t mean to.
It seems that a number of those emails were to support sites so I just opened up quite a few support tickets too. Crap.
Oh well, maybe it’ll jazz up my StumbleUpon profile a bit. 😉
If I didn’t spam you and you want to be my friend, just add me.
Thomas: I was curious why you would randomly invite me to stumbleupon, now I know why! Thanks for the invite but its probably just another web server I won’t use — it’s been around for a long time too.. seems to ahve made it to the big time.
Yeah, I was sorts suspect of why you would send me an invite.
Me + Networking sites = PHAILQUAIL
It was a nice gesture, even for an accidental one…
..but I think I can go without adding another networking/ forum site to my bookmarks.
Steven: I’m with you man. I am having a difficult time keeping up with the very few social networking sites I already attempt to utilize: twitter, del.icio.us, and facebook. Not to mention I have a horrible time keeping up with updates on my various blogs as well. Once again though, Thomas I appreciate the invite — even if it wasn’t intentional; glad you were subconsciously thinking about your fellow sphere community.
What?! You guys don’t want to be my friend? How sad. 😉
It’s no big deal if you don’t join. The cool thing about StumbleUpon is the amount of traffic it can send to a site. Maybe I’ll look around your sites and see if there is anything good to stumble.
If you, ahem, “stumble”, around my dA profile, you might some interesting things there.
Just be careful.
I often upload things that are NSFW.
AAARG! You to… i really wish they’d change that..
I just sent *the maximum” 316 i think, ([email protected]#$)
AT least they could make an easy way to “send a message to all your contacts”. . like how I just had to add ALL my contacts in a Draft Email Appoloizing for the MIS-CLICK invite.. it even got sent to my doctors, lawyers, and old family. .
I will wait untill I hear back from any one of them to send my “denial email”, . . hehe, huh? what you sayin? I didn’t… oh, yeah, theres this really nasty internet worm out, uhhuh.. nope. I didnt do that, just ignore it… 8) Think it’ll work?
LOL, this bytes.
It was WAY to easy to get those sent, i would think they did that on purpose to “spread the word” about stumbleupon… well, i stumbled.
I clicked CONTINUE.. CONTINUE MAN! (as in “not finished yet!)
it didnt say “SEND”, or “FINISH”, “SPAM ALL”.. heh
