Do not use Spacelocker!

If you got an email from me recently inviting you to join you are not alone. I do not recommend that you sign up for that company’s service.

More specifically, if you do decide to sign up for a Spacelocker account please do not use the ‘invite your friends’ form to do so. If you use that form to create an account the company harvests all of the email addresses that it can find from in your email folders and sends those people invitation emails.

When I signed up for an account I did not know this or I wouldn’t have used it. As far as I can tell there is nothing in the company’s ToS to indicate that this is what they do. This has pissed off a lot of people that received invites from me. Those people have a right to be angry. I’m angry!

I sent a sternly worded (i.e. pissed off but time-delayed for calmness) message to the company indicating that I was unhappy with them because of this. The company’s response: I was notified that my account has been deleted.

    I was kind of wondering about this, having received multiple invitations (via you) for this thing. They sound like an impressively unprofessional enterprise.

    I will make sure to steer well clear of them.
