    I think they forgot to put one up. πŸ’‘
    Either that, or they purposely did not have a privacy policy. ➑
    So they can violate our privacy! πŸ˜†

    If they did have a privacy policy, will you sue them?

    I’m guessing, no. Anyway, after the notification was sent out by Hong Kiat another another recipient advised other recipients could ‘mute’ the email if using Gmail.

    However, it occurred to me not everyone were on Gmail. And what’s worst is some of them are using normal email addresses only. Sure-la, they’ll think spam if overloaded with 30+ messages suddenly. LOL!

    The conversation seemed to have died down. Probably after let out their frustration, they’re ignoring the issue now. Typical, as usual. πŸ˜›

    Hello there, Danny! :mrgreen:

    If they did have a privacy policy, will you sue them?

    I am a stingy mofo, so no. πŸ˜†
    Yeah, I saw the tip to ‘mute’ the conversation too. πŸ™„
    Though I did not use it, just ignored that thread. πŸ˜›

    overloaded with 30+ messages suddenly.

    Poor non-gmail users! 😯
    More reason to use gmail! 😳

    they’re ignoring the issue now

    You mean the bloggers? 😈
    I have yet to see any official apology anywhere though. ➑
    However, in Hong Kiat’s post there was an apology thingie. πŸ’‘

    […] YouthMalaysia screwed up on their mass e-mail system where they expose near to 396 blogger’s email and thus leading other jokers to self advertise themselves so that people would check them out with their signature’s at the bottom of their e-mail. […]
