As you say, if she hadn't then someone else probably would.

Very sneaky of the reporter to ask the question.

Thanks Len. I just hope the poor girl isn't hounded by people who have already read this or are told her name by someone else who has read it. If people specify that they want no publicity when they enter the lottery then that should be respected.

Correct, nothing else to add.

I'm fairly sure you don't actually get the option when you enter. I think you have to tell them when you win. I'll let you know when they ring me up

Isn't there a box to tick? You can see how much I know about it can't you? Anyhow I have heard them say on the news 'the winner requested no publicity' and I think a lot more of a newspaper/reporter when they respect that than when they keep badgering away to find out and get a 'scoop'.

Re: Lottery winner in Accy?

My original point was that it was sneaky to say the least, as people have said she can't tell use what she is unless she has lots of posts or subscribes to Accy Web, but there is nothing to stop her putting this info in a signiture, so everybody is aware she is a journo

Quite a few newspapers give out email addresses and request 'anyone that knows a winner to get in touch', that can hardly be seen as respecting someone's privacy.

As for our own reporter, long may she remain a member and maybe she will occasionally be good enough to post answers as well as ask questions and if she is polite, could also print our web address to acknowledge the source of her information, (sometimes we do see things in the ob' or the LET with the source as 'a local web site').

Also, just to make it clear who she is, perhaps she could add 'your Observer reporter', to her signature? Then perhaps such misunderstandings wouldn't happen.

Exactly Less, may work to our advantage at some stage.

Anyway, you never know who may be on here masquerading under a pseudonym/false profile at any given time, gaining our confidence and, through P.M's, discovering our darkest secrets ...

Perhaps our Gordon is here somewhere, or worse still Peter B ! ...

In some ways it's complimentary and acknowledges the fact that the font of all local knowledge is in actual fact Accyweb and not the Accrington Observer

Meeeeow! that's going to cause problems.
Though so far as naming us it is only fair, after all, on a Thursday or Friday, many threads are started naming the Obbo' as the source and indeed linking to their web pages, publicity for them should be returned as publicity for us, after all we always name them, we don't just say, 'a local rag said...'
