Duncan Davidson on the nefarious shit Dropbox is pulling:

After all, every time you ask permission, you not only annoy the user, you’re making them consider saying no, which is bad for numbers in a company driven by the almighty gods of daily, weekly, and monthly active usage.

I bitched about this on twitter and Dropbox responded with an overly dense statement. It’s not about whether they need this access, it’s how they go about getting it.
