Obama and privacy

What’s wrong with Obama’s FightTheSmear.com

There’s another problem with Fight the Smears — its conception that it can spread the truth “virally.” The site asks you for your friends’ e-mail addresses and even your e-mail password, with which it can access all your contacts1. Your friends will then receive a bland message from you — typical line: “These assertions are completely false and designed to play into the worst kind of stereotypes” — along with a link to Fight the Smears.

Never ever give out your email password. Shame on Obama.
