The University of Newcastle has apparently apologised to the thousands of students whose details were published online.
"Deputy Vice-Chancellor Andrew Parfitt says the incident was caused by a configuration error with one of its servers."
Better late than never .... it happened 18 months ago.
"We certainly know the configuration error occurred about 18 months ago and we realise that's quite unacceptable.
How much longer do we need to wait for the University of Newcastle to apologise for the breaches of privacy against many of us whose reputations have been purposely and calculatingly destroyed by academic staff spreading rumours about us?
It is so easy to apologise to students whose privacy has been breached by a "configuration error".
What about academic staff whose privacy has been breached by other academic staff - senior lecturers, professors, lecturers from the Faculties of Education and Arts, Science and IT etc etc?
Would that mean that the Uni would have to actually deal with the harassment, victimisation and bullying from senior academic staff?
