- Dear Wossname Subscriber
This week, along with the March issue, we inadvertantly released a bunch
of other mail to the list. This has caused a lot of confusion and
upset, and I know of at least one person receiving a full scale flaming
for something which was not their fault. This was an administrative
error on our part, a worse than usual hiccup in the changes at Wossname.
To the people who have been affected by this in some way, and those who
feel their privacy has been breached we are truly sorry. We have
rearranged our systems to ensure that something like this cannot
happen again. I would also like to thank those who noted the mistake,
and politely pointed it out to the Wossname staff, as without them we
would not have been aware of the error.
I would like to reassure people that Wossname has _not_ suddenly become
a discussion list. Letters to the editing staff will continue to be
read only by us, and added to Wossname where appropriate, and the
newsletter will be all the traffic this list receives. We will look at
ways to make sure letters to Wossname don't even come near the list
until they have been put in the newsletter, and will put any changed
submission information etc in the next issue.
I'd also like to thank the staff at Wossname for their support in
resolving this issue.
Thankyou for your understanding
Editor in Chief
