Hi, IMHO, safe opt-in lists - if such a thing exists - should ask the holder of the address for confirmation, when opting in or changing email address.
This Frappr thing obviously did not, and therefore, can not be considered "safe" - no matter the good intention. Unless the invitation is considered a confirmation request, and actual opt-in is done, when you add yourself.. Should say so, in that case..
