Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
This from MediaGuardian:
The Daily Telegraph was facing a PR calamity today after a printing error led to an “unprecedented number” of winners in its new, £1m Paper Poker promotion. The paper was inundated with calls from readers who thought they had won the £5,000 top cash prize. But a technical cock-up had caused the wrong playing cards to be printed in yesterday’s paper, leading to many more winners than intended.
Stories like this do amuse me.
