Dublin company and a nasty cyber revenge…

In five years of blogging, I don’t think I have ever quite heard the like of this… Damien Mulley had some bother with some bags, and posted this in his anger and frustration. Now it seems someone in the company he was complaining of has sought cyber revenge by signing him up to a gay dating website and filling in details on his behalf, using his name and email. Whoever did it may be regretting it now, since it has just hit the front page of Digg (currently second place of all topics with 1802 Diggs and rising minute by minute) and Damien has just had to move servers to keep up with the traffic.
