If you received an invite from me for Bebo, I apologize, and for those of you who join, I hope you get something out of it.
They make it fairly non-obvious when you're looking for Contacts from your GMail account that you're choosing to send an Invite to the entire frickin' list. So now I've received 20+ "Who the hell are you?" emails because it spammed people who emailed lists I'm on, people who are friends-of-friends and so on.

So um..yay Web 2.0!!!

You may think it's awesome!

Ditto to that.. *Smile* happy to know I can junk it.

I got the email, but haven't signed up or checked out the site much yet. What do you do with it?

Also.. I don't trust any site to conveniently import all my contacts and not do something evil or annoying with it.

I'm not exactly sure - I think it's somewhere between YouTube and LJ.

And I didn't mean for it to import them!
The UI made it look like I was only inviting a few who already had accounts, then right below it, it gave the entire list of people who didn't have it and probably HATE ME WITH THE FIERY INTENSITY OF A THOUSAND SUNS now.

I hope you responded, "I'm Scott, who the fuck are you?"

I immediately rejected it and opted to never hear from anybody from Bebo.

I've narrowly avoided doing this with other social-networky-sites.
