    Hi all!

    I just got suckered by a Reunion.com e-mail, where when I did a free sign-up, it scraped my contact list and spammed everyone on it. Here's a story from a while ago:

    Code:
    http://consumerist.com/380751/reunioncom-will-scrape-your-address-book-then-spam-your-contacts
    And it doesn't take much of a search to find lots of other sites.

    My question is does anyone here know how to do this?? Is there a program/ script/ whatever that's been posted or is even available commercially to duplicate this???

    Any assist will be most welcome!

    Gracias! :)

    Oh. I guess a followup question would be does anybody know if this is illegal?? Since its still being distributed and Reunion.com is a real company, I would guess that its within the law, at least for now.

    that's definitly illegal.
    By the way: spamming is forbidden in almost all datacenters.
