A brief note on privacy

Over to the right you will see two linky things. One allows you to subscribe to ST, getting three issues posted to you by me. This means, of course, that I know your name and address.

But there's also another linky thing that allows you to buy single issues. If you use this option I get no information about who has purchased the magazine. Nothing, nix, nada. All I get is a notification that a certain number of issues have been bought.

So if anyone is worried about internet privacy-related issues the obvious thing to do is to buy single issues.

Not that I can't be trusted with your address, of course. It's not like I'll send something awful to get you, or anything absurd like that...

"Absurdly awful?" So it was *you* who sent me the new Dan Brown!

Poor Dan, crying all the way to his Swiss bank.
