This week I decided to check out the new Mega.nz website, the newer version of Mega.co.nz the cloud storage that purports to be built from the ground up for maximum security, that will include a chat feature.

Here is something that left me feeling quite embarrassed, angry and apologetic; on importing my Gmail contacts (to check if they are already using the service) Mega.nz proceeded to email every contact in my address book an invitation to join the service, something that I am sure I was not warned about! This included friends, people I knew more than ten years ago, companies I have dealt with recently and in the past and so on. This is a very ill-thought action.

I have written some feedback to the service and hope that they will stop this happening in future, and I would like to apologize to anyone who received such spam in my name.
