Nice of them to black out the street address, yet leave the ZIP+4, which is enough information to find the street address.

I think it costs extra to have your title on the card.

Can she sue now that her name is all over the net?
Or will it be a class action by all Lisa McIntyres?

The inappropriately addressed letter is the second to make news since last month.

In January, a Chicago couple who lost their 17-year-old daughter in a car crash received a piece of mail from OfficeMax addressed to Mike Seay, "Daughter Killed in Car Crash."

OfficeMax, which is based in Naperville, Ill., blamed a "third-party mailing list provider" for the insensitive mix-up.


I think their manual data entry people are Farking while inputting.

No, it's like when your phone number is unlisted, except this time for a nominal fee your name doesn't go in the book of Girls Who Put Out* that gets delivered around this time every year.

* not to be confused with that shoddy knockoff Booty Call Directory, which gets tossed right into the recycling bin

Wrath of Heaven: Read that as "Lisa is a Slut Machine"


Me too.

And this is why you need to sanitize the inputs for the name fields. Or make it so that only certain people are able to correct them. I know that when I worked for Charter One many moons ago, those fields were locked. Sure, it defeats the purpose if the prankster (or asshole, in this case)  is one of the higher-ups, but being forced to submit something like that for approval and/or having a software flag for certain word combinations would have prevented this in the first place.

Radak: Nice of them to black out the street address, yet leave the ZIP+4, which is enough information to find the street address.


That's what I thought. Our postal codes here cover fairly small areas, sometimes just one building. I don't like giving out my postal code to all and sundry, particularly businesses who may sell on the address list.

In rural areas where the population is scanty, the area may be larger but the population might be smaller so everybody in the postal code may know each other or at least know of each other. My family knows a lot of people up to a couple of hundred miles away through business, family and friendships. They should have blacked out at least part of the postal code for greater privacy.

The world is full of trolls and most of them just saw this poor woman's address on Fark.com.

Shame, shame, shame! Leave Lisa alone!

This is not a surprise

/CSB Time

Back in 1997 I was living with a couple of friends and we got one of those random shopper surveys that get delivered in the mail. We filled it out with the name Buck Knuckler and started receiving all sorts of offers within months for credit cards and even phone calls for Buck. To this day it would not surprise me if he is still getting mail there.

That's actually more information than the street address. It designates a specific apartment inside a building, for example.

That was a big issue at the ISP call center where I briefly worked at several years ago. The middle name field didn't appear on customer statements so the technicians or account services employees would type in comments describing the customer's demeanor. I also knew of at least one tech who kept notepad open and would record the names and addresses of truly dickish customers and sign them up for free trial subscriptions to embarrassing magazines.

I'm truly grateful I was among those who was laid-off when the company down-sized. Yes, it resulted in me being unemployed for fifteen months during the height of the economic crisis, but it also saved me from any further potentially illegal activities that upper management was doing.

If your mom is opening mail on your behalf for you, especially financial services mails, you have a bigger problem than being a slut.

I guess I was lucky... Charter One had a comments field on the accounts that did not print out. It would appear on the main account screen and was obviously designed to jot down anecdotes and the like. Even though we could technically type anything that we wanted to, they audited those files pretty often and I am sure that there are a few people who lost their jobs over vulgar commentary. Or, forced to take training.

Wait a tick... isn't lisa the one who posted this on twitter? Hmmmmm, my apologies to those I may offend, but maybe lisa is just expanding the public exposure of her "title". I'm just saying ;-)

Journalism is failing anymore.   The key question is NOT how did this happen?  The key question is...Is Lisa McIntire a slut?  That was not addressed anywhere in the article.  I think everyone can agree that putting one's sexual preferences in an address is not appropriate, yet the article stayed completely on that point.

I still feel it's not appropriate on an envelope or throughout a mail whether or not Lisa McIntire allowed the guys at the bar to run a train on her this weekend.  I am however interested in finding out, if she did, and at which bar?   Also is she only there on Saturdays?
