> before my company acquired SourceForge
Shortly after that, your company sent a "Fair processing notice - Data protection Act 1998" to its users (including an old account of mine).
At the end of that, it included this text:
You can ask us to remove all your account data, stop processing your personal data and to stop contacting you for marketing purposes at any time.
* For SourceForge.net, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
* For Slashdot, please contact us at email@example.com
* For FreeCode, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
* For SlashdotMedia.com, please contact us at email@example.com
As directed there, several times I emailed "firstname.lastname@example.org". Not once, ever has anyone responded.
So, frankly... (at least this far) your company doesn't seem any better than the previous owner.
