“MBF management to avoid NIB’s public scrutiny?” …not if Crikey comments on this explosive post!

Which local news website has the worst “privacy” policy? It has to be News Ltd. Read this little extract:

In other words, as soon as you sign up for anything, you can be spammed, SMS’d, and rung by News Ltd or any other company it chooses to share your data with. The terms are here. They are common to all News Ltd websites. I thought the big players had given up that sort of loathsome spamming years ago ?

I saw Maxine McKew at the Mosman shops the other weekend. Aren’t the Eastwood shops good enough for her? Latham was right, she obvioulsy doesn’t like the smell of Labor voters.
