Buddy Ping

Some, or indeed all, of you might have received an email from me inviting you to try out a service called “buddyPing”. I didn’t mean to send them. It looks like a faintly useful service, so I thought I’d try it out, and it offers a facility to import your Gmail address book. I thought that that would add all those people to my list of buddyPing contacts. Instead, it mailed them all, everyone, to ask them if they’d like to become a buddyPing contact. Sorry about that. I shall mention to the buddyPing team that it might want to say “this is about to send email to everyone you’ve ever met; are you sure you want to do that?” or warn you first or something…
