Expiring man vows Reg deathwatch

Goodbye Cruel World

Seven Steps to Software Security

FoTW It's ages since we saw any innovation in Flames of the Week. The noble art of the Hate Mail has been usurped by the Demented Comment. But here's something new. Someone who is so angry, they can't fill in their name properly in their email client.

It exploded in response to the story FCC censures Comcast for doing its job

From: "*EXPIRING* use Steve@ [address withheld]"

Subject:

What is happening to The Reg!? How much did you get paid to print this crap!? As you well know, I represent many users who won't bother writing. I probably represent even more as I might be similarly disgusted once or twice a year. Make no mistake the we've all begun our own Reg deathwatch.

Is Steve expiring himself, or is his email address expiring? Hopefully it's only the latter, but we haven't heard back. So the Flame could be Steve's last written word.

It's one way to go.
