no, i don't want to help you with your damn address book!!!!!!!!!!

i am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sick of those plaxo e-mails.

you know, the one that says "hi, i'm updating my address book and i need you to fill out your f'ing information for me, again."

well, honey, i already gave you my information once. can't you transfer it to your damn linked in, plaxo, or other contact directory, yourself?

next time i get one of these e-mails, i'm deleting it.

Lizzardo - My name is Stacy Martin and I am the Privacy Officer here at Plaxo responsible for addressing Privacy, Security, and Trust issues pertaining to the usage of Plaxo.

I was forwarded your note by a Plaxo member, and I wanted to get back to you.

I'm sorry if you feel a Plaxo member has unnecessarily bothered you by sending you a Plaxo Update Request message. I wanted to make you aware that if you feel a Plaxo member is abusing our service and your privacy, you may wish to report the incident to our Abuse Department at abuse @t for investigation and further action.

The Update Request actually serves two purposes. First and foremost, it is a way for the Plaxo member to update friends, family and other known contacts with the their most updated information. The member is providing their updated contact information in an effort to stay in touch with selected known contacts that exist within the member's local address book. Plaxo does not send these messages. We act as the service provider, similar to a user sending an email through Yahoo!.

At the same time, the member is also requesting an update from the contact to also stay better in touch. It is completely optional for the recipient of the Update Request to respond, but any responses the Plaxo member may receive are processed through Plaxo and automatically updated into their address book.

But if you do not wish to receive further update request, as the service provider, we do provide a "block message" feature that recipients may chose to take advantage of.

By following the opt-out link included within the Update Request message, you can instruct us to block all further messages sent to you through our service. Plaxo members will no longer be able to communicate with you through Plaxo. You have the option of blocking all messages coming from a particular individual or from all Plaxo members.

I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
