Your new strand of confessional articles seems quite timely.
Almost 1,500 software developers registered to use the UK taxman's sandbox or API platform have had their email addresses blabbed in a mass mailing.

I wonder if the ICO views a commercial confidence breach more seriously that personal details ?

And that's just silly.
It staggers me that so many people still don't realise there is something called MailTips built into Exchange that can do this kind of thing.
They can even be customised so there really is no excuse where Exchange and Outlook are in use.
Of course...that doesn't prevent someone sending them out in a badly written script.
I was working on a clients PC via a remote session and they were sending me an email, they had a pop up when they clicked send of all the email addresses that the email was going to and did they want to send it.
Functionality is out there, there is however no pressure to implement it. Wonder if the HMRC will wrap up their business before the fine from the ICO is chased?

"Please note the HMRC Developer Hub will remain shuttered over the weekend..."
To shut has always been an irregular verb, but its conjugation seems to have changed recently.
It used to be that the present, "I shut", was the same as the simple past, "I shut". Like "I put" or "I cut". And the corresponding adjective was also "shut". "The door is shut".
At some point in the last couple of years, usage has changed. Now people say "shuttered" for the past tense and the adjective. "I shuttered it yesterday", "it is shuttered".
Is this an import from the U.S.? Like "train station"?
