It had to happen :-(

A few months ago ThisIsLeicestershire, the syndicated site for the Leicester Mercury, improved its commenting system for online articles. Part of the "improvement" required commenters to give an email address for registration. I don't bother with the disposable email accounts used to register on dodgy sites - if I think a site is dodgy, I just don't bother.

The Mercury has now started sending me spam asking me to place adverts.

The Mercury has violated my trust.

Note to Mercury: Respect my privacy, stop the spam. You're not Facebook.

Note to Keith: You're not Zukerberg (maybe that's a good thing).
