What's even worse: people are giving fly-by-night social networks
their email passwords. So not only do they spam your address book,
they now have access to your mailbox and any password resets that get
sent to it.

Any site that asks users for their login credentials at some other
site should be shut down on principle. (I'm looking at you, Facebook.
