Please cease putting a person's full name, including other surname in brackets.

Katie, almost a week ago you posted
"This email has now been changed and will only reveal the first name of the person whose post you have requested to be reviewed.
Katie ".

Today the email that I received was exactly the same as previously.

Hello Joy,
we did amend the response last week. Now, when you receive a response from us you won't see a name at all. This will be updated to show just a first name.
The customer service team maintain the responses we use and the head of customer services is looking after this issue.
Kind regards,
Estelle

Thank you for replying, Estelle.

"Now, when you receive a response from us you won't see a name at all. This will be updated to show just a first name. "

- it is still an invasion of privacy if a person's real name is revealed to another person.

The automated email used to contain the board name; please revert to that system that protected a person's privacy. Thank you.

Hi Joy,

thanks for your comments. Not all members choose to use a board name. If they haven't picked one then we have no option but to use their first name. If they do use a first name then they cannot be positively identified.

I will speak to the head of customer services though to see if we can come up with a better solution.

Kind regards,

Estelle
