"Our users' privacy and data security have always been a priority for RockYou"
No they haven't. Clearly RockYou has no one on staff with the specific task of vetting security details. Or if they do, that person is either incompetent, or has been overruled by ignorant pointy-haired bosses or the professional liars on staff.
¿Why do corporations (and government, it seems) invariably resort to lies and spin instead of saying "We seriously fucked up and the director responsible for this fiasco has been dumped. We are going to send everyone affected £10, plus we will make good any fianancial losses that may ensue."?
Don't they realize that when platitudes such as that quoted appear, no thinking person pays the slightest attention. Gaseous feel-good messages no longer cut it, guys.
