well, Lulu would like to boo the esteemed MaChAi-head for doing the same boo-boo.
On New Year's Day, close to 700 JPA scholars received an email from the esteemed MaChAi-head and the email addresses are all put in the open.
Check your mailbox to see if you got one of these.
From: MCA President <firstname.lastname@example.org>

you didn't get it?
ahh... you're not a Chinese JPA scholar.
this Perak chap who runs in Johor sends out an email to all the scholars without bcc-ing the names.
If Lulu were a viagra salesman who is concerned about your performance, this email list would be very valuable to Lulu.
If Lulu were a receipient of the mail, Lulu would have replied to everyone on copy minus the intelligent sender what Lulu thinks of the sender.
If Lulu were in one of her angins, Lulu could set up a Facebook group "We All Love The President" and invite all those 700 and more scholars to join the group to express their "love" for him.
That was a not very intelligent move by the MaChAi head.
Lulu didnt get to read the message, but a wild guess would be him trying to convince these scholars that they are indebted to MCA for their scholarship. Like as if MCA had anything to do about it when straight A's students get scholarships from the government.
And while Lulu's at it, why was MCA given this list? If/When the Data Protection Act comes into place, will MCA still have access to these lists?
