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.
