Dangerous thing this email business

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

The manager of a posh member's club has been caught out by Claire Swire syndrome - that is the inability to be discreet in an email.

Jason Gissing was thinking about joining the club, but wanted to spend an evening there before signing up. He approached Patricia Cusack, manager at Monte's Private club in Sloane Street asking her to arrange an evening at the club for him.

[A sensible move, given the £250 joining fee and the £500 per year membership costs - Ed.]

Cusack then emailed her secretary the following:

Amanda, can you arrange a time for this asshole to come in. Weekends at 8pm are no good for anyone --he obviously wants to make a night of it.

There is nothing really wrong with that. Maybe he'd annoyed her; maybe she was just having a bad day.

No, the stupid part was that she also emailed it to the "asshole" in question.

He forwarded it to a friend who sent it on to forty more, and now the email has been around the world and back - making appearances in Australia, Germany and the US.

We contacted Monte's to ask about the message, but have not heard anything from them today.

A spokeswoman for the club told London freebie rag Metro, that Cusack would not face disciplinary proceedings. "She made a small error of judgement," she said. Cusack is apparently "devastated." ®
