I think you mean Grouply? Yeah, I heard about that site and received several emails from my friends who unfortunately were duped to give out their email details. Turns out this site uses the user's friends' list info to spam all the addresses there. I NEVER give out my email address and password to any site (facebook and other sites even do this) even if they indicate that they would not be storing my password and only be using the info to send out invites to my friends. That is a very foolhardy thing to do. If I really like the site and want to invite my friends, I simply enter email addresses manually. Better to be always safe than sorry because I've had 4 friends already whose yahoo accounts were hacked and are not accessible anymore.
