Today, in an article covering The Daily Jolt website, the site's url is
listed as

It is actually

Thank you,
Daily Jolt

Last time I looked, I did not know Jonathan Bardin. In fact, I am fairly certain that I have never met him, that I have never expressed any interest in the Daily Jolt to him or any of his associates, and that I did not sign up for any "Crimson Corrections by Email" service that he was providing.

More importantly, this email makes certain assumptions. It assumes that I am actually interested in the Daily Jolt. It assumes that I am technologically ignorant, since I would not be able to find the website without an email telling it to me. It also assumes that around 6:30 this morning, I was reading The Crimson's article about the website, as opposed to more productive activity (like sleeping).

Even if the Daily Jolt were an interesting website (rather than without the integration with courses and email), such backhanded email tactics make it extremely unlikely that I will ever use their site. With such flippant use of my personal Harvard email address, how could I possibly trust their Privacy Policy, with its claims of "never disclosing my personal information?"
