What the heck is going on here? In order to create an account on the Intel Communities via Google single-sign-on, Intel wants to be able to "View and Manage my contacts".
What the f&%@ here Intel. Why do you want to invade my privacy like this?
Absolutely, unequivocally, NO WAY am I giving you this level of access to my personal info just to "make logging on to the Intel forums easier".
And whose bright idea was it to invade the privacy of all the people using the Intel Communities in this manner?
It is GOOGLE, not INTEL.
