After doing a google on Plaxo, it seems that there are many against it 
or just the idea of a centrally kept database like that.  On the other 
hand, I bet the people who own the database can play a really cool game 
of 6 degrees of Bacon...  so you will not be alone in not wanting to do 
it... yet you will also join a bunch of people that are doing it...
