Is It Wrong to Beg for Klout? Yes, You Dummy

I just got the following DM from someone I follow on Twitter:

I don't know what kind of person would spam their follower list, begging for influence, but it's pretty gross. This is the first time I've been the recipient of a message like this (not sure how common it is), and I was pretty surprised. 

Is this a feature that's built into Klout itself? I confess I haven't had a moment to investigate to see if "Ask your friends to give you Klout!" is an option. I suspect it isn't. At any rate, I think it's pretty slimy to go around asking your followers to validate your expertise this way. 

Agreed?
