This Bebo invite spam is more Bebo's fault than Ryan's.

Bebo (like many social networking sites) by default assume that new
users want to send an invite to everyone in their address book. They
operate a block opt-in policy. If you just quickly click through the
buttons you send an invite to everyone in your address book. Then sit
and panic when you realize what you've done. :) Ryan isn't the only
one that has been caught out by this system.
