Mashable: Are You Getting Quechup Spammed?

by Volker Weber

The issue lies with their "check for friends" form: during signup you're asked to enter your email address and password to see whether any of your friends are already on the service. Enter the password, however, and it will proceed to mail all your contacts without asking permission. This has led to many users issuing apologies to their friends for "spamming" them inadvertently. Hopefully the bad PR on this one will force them to change the system.

Just blacklist and they are history.

re Quechup I hope the bad PR doesn't just force them to change, I hope it shuts them down. Who knows what else did they fail to think properly, I mean this was a pretty easy one to figure out.
