Everybody’s Updating

Everybody’s updating their address books online and nobody is doing any work. Except me. I have a pile of emails asking me to update everyones address book and I have been denying them all on the principle that:
1. They should update their own dang address book.
2. I have not been smart enough to have a similar system, thus I feel stupid.
3. If I ignore these requests then they will go away.
Wrong on number 3. This is what the emails look like now:
Hi again, I noticed that I didn’t get a response from my last email to you. I’m using a new tool called Plaxo to update my address book. . . ”
Cant win!
