Between the two of them - I have had a relationship with Reed for - well more than 20 years. It somewhat irks me that EVERY YEAR I have to re-register with them. You would think by now they would know who I was (OK no snickers here please). Especially when Reed is off touting their credentials for Social Media.
So this year when it came time to register - I duly received my invitation to register early.
GREAT - they finally got it this year. Even a reasonable facsimile of my name!
I click on the email link... disappointment.
"Your Session has expired" What??? I didn't have a session yet how could it expire?
OK so rather than just abandoning things I thought OK its a simple bug - I hope they have not sent this email to 50,000 people and everyone gets the same response.
So let me tell the webmaster - he will fix things. Right? WRONG!
Here is the error:
184.108.40.206 does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550 sorry, no mailbox here by that name. (#5.7.17)
Giving up on 220.127.116.11.
So moral of the story. If you are in our business then perhaps you should be sure to make things work.
I am sure that we are all guilty of doing silly things but this is a pretty major site and it needs to get fixed.
I hope they remember me after this rant
