Can't quite agree with you there Jaysay, a reporter has to look for all sources of information. She is a member, and introduced herself officially, inviting us to feed her with any information on interesting topics, so could work in our favour at times.

yeah i know what your saying cashy, i usually get pulled up for saying things without thinking about them, that Lisa shouldnt have asked in the first place, cant we put REPORTER under her name then everyone will know in future?

I'm with you on this one, if someone is lucky enough to win, leave them alone, let them decide who they tell, the rest of us don't need to know.

Oooooh,! but I hope it's a relative.

Good luck to her if she won the lottery, or a share in it, if it is only a share, it could be shared between lots of people. If Ms Kenyon is a reporter, she should have made it clear when she asked the question, and perhaps mishyfoote could have avoided this, in hindsight, it probably wasnt a good idea to post a name of a person who may have won.

Well the damage is done now I suppose - but what if the named person decides to sue somebody for all the unwanted attention? Who ends up liable, the person who named her or AccyWeb itself?

rubbish, if that did lead to unwanted attention/ persecution fer someone who did not want it,thats fine with you? i'm sure many did not realise who she was with that innocent post.:rolleyes:

WHAT IF THE WOMEN IN OSSY DIDN'T WIN THE LOTTERY.. It's terrible that her name is posted on here if she didn't win..

As for the OP .. not everyone will know she is a reporter.. not everyone reads the welcome threads.... bit sneaky IMHO

But I do feel people are misisng the point.. Its ok posting good luck message in case she did win... But his poor womens life will be hell if she didnt win it and all because of accyweb :( ... so her name should not be printed in here unless its confirmed she won.


PS .. if she did then good luck... need any photography??? :) :) :) :)

Well, practically every post she has entered has mentioned her occupation up to date .. ok .. not everyone remembers, however, wouldn't have made a difference if had been a regular member or would it ? Not responsible for the reply is she.

Maybe not a bad idea for her to put up her status, but don't think you can, can you until a certain number of posts ? Has to stick with Junior Member for the time being. Sure if this information is correct, will be treated with respect to the 'so called' winner if they contact this lady .. can't be much of a secret can it really.

Still stick to my views that a good reporter has to use all resources, don't think Lisa Kenyon was trying to be devious at all, due to her past posts for all to see, her mistake was she just presumed we would remember her.

In my opinion, anyone could have asked this question and anyone could have answered it but the point is, giving out third party private information such as full names, addresses, telephone numbers etc is not permitted here at accyweb (see forum rules).

We’ve dealt with this as quickly as possible and removed the suggested name and who’s to say? We may well have several news reporters searching accyweb.

Still not her fault in whatever guise .. she just asked a question. You don't trust anyone Cashy, reporters, politicians, councillors, N.H.S., planners, police,royalty, gas/electric boards, etc .... :D:D
