Your Email is Rated E, for Everyone to See
Two days ago I posted an article talking about Blizzard’s upcoming change to make users use thier real name for their account instead of an anonymous handle. Well this didn’t sit well with the account holders. So in effort to stop this from happening users and fans sent emails to Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) in hopes something would be done. However what ended up happening was ESRB sent a mass email back to the complainants along with everyones email address. 961 people had their personal email sent out to 960 other users. The board apologized for the mistake and said it was “both unfortunate and regrettable”. Wonder what will happen next.
