oh yes, the good ship BT is sailing into port to take us all to the
Golden Land!

Except this morning, 2 days after registering, I get the mail below;

Has anyone ever thought of compiling a book on how comically,
pathetically, amateurish British Telecom are? it makes me weep.

and be careful; the openworld faq is particularly mealy-mouthed about
whether they'll provide full internet access, or just web+email, or some
pile-of-shite walled garden piss-portal. My guess is it's no napster, no
icq, no irc, no quake, in which case, I for one, ain't buying.

Dear Sir/Madam

Re : Your BTopenworld registration

For a short period yesterday a hidden area of the BTopenworld site
holding
the details that you registered was accessed by a limited number of
unauthorised persons. I am writing to apologise to you for this breach
in
security.

I would like to assure you that as soon as the problem was identified,
we
took immediate steps to secure the site.

We are writing to those people identified as having accessed this hidden
area to get written confirmation that they have not copied, used or
passed
your
details to any other person and will delete or destroy all copies of
this
information.

I can confirm that we are undertaking a full and thorough investigation
to
ensure that breaches of this nature do not happen again.

Once again our sincere apologies.

Yours faithfully

Robert Salvoni
General Manager BTopenworld
