Claire Swire II faces worldwide humiliation

Don't hit the 'reply to all' button - ever

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

We received a forwarded email last week which, by our reckoning, has already been seen by four-fifths of the world's population.

Which is a shame for author Sharon Dyson because it was originally intended for boyfriend Alex Hewson only. You get the idea.

Sadly, Sharon was responding to a general email Alex had sent from abroad to her and 30 mates. Unfortunately, when she wrote her reply, she hit "reply to all" by mistake - something she will live to regret.

Naturally, we at El Reg were not originally going to run with this story. After all, the girl's done nothing wrong. Then we found the Sun had got hold of it, so it's all a bit late for damage limitation. We gather that Sharon is in line for a bit of a ear-bashing from her bosses - London-based Hobson's. Give the girl a break, it could happen to anyone:

We feel for the new Claire Swires - no, really - and ask her bosses to go lightly on the poor lass. As for Alex's 30 mates, who could have nipped this in the bud - you ought to be ashamed of yourselves. ®
