El Reg in SHOCK email address BLUNDER
Turning ourselves in to the ICO right now
Between 8:58 and 10:20 BST this morning we sent an email to 3,521 of you that contained the names and email addresses of 46,524 of our readers.
Obviously, this was an error. The two-stage send process that is the norm for all of our mailers was over-looked because someone was in a hurry.
We would like to offer our genuine and humble apologies for the error.
If you would like to vent at that someone, their email address is here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are in the process of blowing the whistle on ourselves to the ICO over the matter. ®
You mean where they immediately and publicly admit to the error? As opposed to most of the places they report on who do their damndest tp cover the error up?
Nobody's perfect. It's how you deal with the imperfections that counts.
When you're sending off your report to the ICO be sure to CC the rest of us.
"46,524 of our readers."
Personally, I'm just astonished that you have more than 50 readers!
