New gmail contact policy

Gmail has now implemented a new policy for managing your Gmail contacts. Instead of automatically adding all email addresses you send to as contacts, they now distinguish between your contacts and your suggested contacts. If they would have done something like this a long time ago, the mess (read the spam) generated by Konnects to everybody in my gmail contact list would have been considerably less severe!
However, I agree with Blogjunkies that Gmail has not fixed the automatic and very loose contact handling, but mainly just made their contact policy more complicated.
