BBC: ‘Please get my name right’

Getting names wrong is one of those things that is more likely to happen in a blog than in traditionally edited media, but the effect is the same: the person whose name is wrong is disgruntled.

And I am disgruntled by being called Adamson-Grant almost all the way through the BBC’s response to my questions about the purpose of newspaper blogs. More than 24 hours ago I emailed the author of the BBC’s post suggesting it was changed. Maybe the email did not get through although it left my computer, and was sent as a reply to a message from the author, so there is no chance that the address was wrong. But nothing has changed.

I admit I have spelled names wrongly, but I have changed them as soon as they were spotted and, so far, before getting any external complaint.

I will be responding to the BBC’s response but it would be nice if they could get my name right first.

    My apologies for getting your name wrong Andrew. As someone who has frequently been renamed “Robert Hammond”, I realise how annoying it can be when people don’t get your name right.

    (I was away in Bristol and wasn’t checking my email otherwise I would have made the correction sooner.)

    Thanks for pointing out my error.
    Robin.
