Byron council publishing email addresses

Morgan (Ms).

Ever wonder how your email address is known by the purveyors or viagra, pornography and other unwanted ‘services’?

Today I discovered one source of the breach of my Privacy – Byron Shire Council.

The price of informing Council of my desire to make a Submission (on Exceloos – 2015) at Council Meeting public access via Council’s dictated method – Council web page, my email address is now available on the internet for everyone on the planet to read and note and abuse.

No doubt the complaint relating to the aforementioned will be ‘summarily dismissed’ by Ken Gainger as standard practice of Byron Shire Council.

    So rather than reporting this directly to Council to assist them in resolving the problem, you publicise it, thus exacerbating the issue and further jeopardising the privacy of others. Thanks very much for that.

  2. So instead of reporting this straightforwardly to Council to help them in determining the issue, you pitch it, consequently intensifying the issue and further risking the protection of others. Much obliged especially for that.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
