As a wise man once said:

You were so preoccupied with whether or not you could that you didn't stop to think if you should.

Seriously, I think their place in dark patterns's hall of shame is well deserved 🙄

I recall a demo where a visitor while entering the 3rd 4th and 5th chr of their ZIP code (US), the corresponding address information would filter down then autofill the city and state fields.

The fields were asynchronous and could be tied to any data point. That was the point of the demo. The user never had to submit the data.
