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.

    Careful Mick

    It’s not necessarily the Company taking revenge, just one angry ( and irresponsible ) employee. (Allegedly!)

    I bet his bag shows up pretty quickly now..

    willis,

    I have been *very* careful above. One disgruntled employee does not represent the company, but it’s a mess whatever way you look at it. It’s not the first time I’ve heard of this technique being, but it is the first time in a commercial rather than a political context.

  • It’s bizarroland. I can’t wait to see how this pans out. I’m making t-shirts.

    I travel a fair bit and wrongly directed luggage happens from time to time.

    Strongly advise putting your essentials and a change of clothes in the bag you take in as hand luggage. I have know it to take a month for luggage to catch up and it is particularly bad if you are moving from one place to another. Chances are it will never catch up; you end up having to fly back to collect it!

    Also keep a good record of all costs, advice given by staff and time taken. Unfortunately what you can claim as compensation is somewhat limited under, if I remember rightly, the Warsaw Convention. If there is nothing of any real value in the suitcase you are probably better writing it off as the hassle of checking back with airports and the time it takes is unbelievable especially if it is a foreign country the language of which you don’t speak. Last time it happened to me was in China.
