It’s apparently the talk of the town – that Blog2u made a blunder this morning by exposing all our email addresses here! Oh well, I think it’s really an innocent mistake. Moreover… it’s so early in the morning! Heh heh… don’t tell me Paddy is ill-treating his people? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Then again, there’s nothing much I can do now that my email address had been exposed, although it’s quite fun to see what email address others use. Ok, I don’t think it’s funny at all, but like I said, what’s done is done and he apologised.

So what happens next? I could:

  • change my email address
  • make a lot of noise in my blog
  • spam everyone else in the list with my time-sharing schemes and get rich quick ideas

Then again, with regards to my last idea… someone might actually be doing that. Well, at least if I start getting spam, I know who to blame. =)

It does seemed that a lot of people are making blunders nowadays:

  • Nuffnang and their $1.00 surcharge (reminds me taxi)
  • Advertlets and their hidden redirector that made me download malware and I’m spreading it all over the place (and I thought it was youtube!)
  • Blog2u exposing all our email address (it’s spamming time!)

I guess if the PR is good and the mistake/blunder is genuine, I guess I can live and let live. I can’t be expecting a compensation pay-out like that of Mindef’s, can I? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ed: actually, if there was not so much brouhaha about it, I might not even have noticed =P

    Hi Jean

    Sorry for the huge blunder last night. Hope my error didn’t caused any inconvenience to you and other Blog2u partners. Please accept my most sincere apologies.

    PS: Paddy didn’t ill-treat any of his employees. (at least not yet)

    Last time Kinokuniya made the same mistake too! They are suppose to BCC all members but ended up putting it under TO, so all emails are seen.
