Has YouTube become SpamTube?

I’m getting bombarded today by e-mail invitations to view clips posted on YouTube, mostly from political advocacy groups. My editor is getting the same thing.

My account was set to allow e-mail notifications when friends post new videos, but I have zero friends listed in my YouTube profile.

Have people figured out how to spam YouTube members, tapping into the e-mail directory somehow?

Maybe this has been going on for some time and it’s just reaching me, but it’s got me thinking about deleting my account.
