in reply to Parse mailing addresses with a regex

please don't use live data in your examples. take the time to obfuscate it. you've just done your customers a disservice, and may have violated one or more privacy policies. i've put in a request to the Editors to change it.

please be more careful in the future.

    ++particle,
    I'd be absolutely furious if I came across 'my' details in a public forum such as this. Given the proliferation of spam (Digital & Snailmail) this is a topic that should be stressed in the most stringent way possible.

    Thankfully at last individuals are to be made responsible for their actions regarding divulgence of personal data (at least in the UK that is). So, data (and others) take heed, don't do it again!... "for your own and others sakes", please.

    Update: Any chance dvergin you could change BrowserUK's Node as well? As that contains (at present) the same "real" data...

    Ah, apparently the data wasn't real after all... bugger... (who's red faced now? ;)
    /me scuttles off into a dark corner
