Re: The Online Opt-Out Does Not Work Either

"I still do not see how they (UK authorities etc) can keep on failing at this simple stuff."

I don't know about the authorities but in TPP's case I can see quite easily how they do that. A few weeks ago I reported here seeing a recruitment poster "Write code/solve problems/save lives No experience needed". It was recruiting for TPP.

And TPP don't believe in providing first line of support for users; that's delegated to your GP's receptionist who is, of course, fully trained as first line IT support as well as being a receptionist.

I read this report on the Beeb a few hours ago. Unlike el Reg they didn't say who was responsible at the top of the report but I'd guessed who it was before I got that far.
