YouTube’s contact importer is spam

In an effort to sync up my YouTube account with my contacts, I decided to import over 1,000 Gmail contacts into my account. Rather than just import addresses, YouTube’s importer went ahead and decided to spam every one of my Gmail contacts on my behalf, never informing me that an email would be sent, nor did I want it to. Very lame, and I feel like a smoe.

So if YouTube spammed you on my behalf, my apologies.
