Not really, just a bunch of spam in Google Calendar.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

Why would most people want auto accept an invite to be on to begin with?
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

Hello,

Spammers sending appointment requests, which automatically show up.  Here's how to disable this:

1.  Go to calendar.google.com/calendar/r/settings

2.  Scroll down to the Event Settings section.

3.  Look for a setting Automatically add invitations.

4.  Change the option's value to No, only show invitations to which I have responded.

If you have any outstanding event spam showing, t would probably be a good idea to cancel the series of them first before doing this.

Regards,
