KeyCAPTCHA Email protecting service: One More Little Lie For The Sake of The Big True Lie
Having a big employment experience in various countries, before my “employment” in KeyCAPTCHA.com, I’ve never encountered the situation when employer and colleagues are always misinforming you, even on unimportant trifles.
One more such petty lie I recalled after reading the question by Trevor Matthews:
- “And I have just started using your email service as well.
What a great idea.
Will the service always be available if I use it on some of my websites?”
and the answer there by KeyCAPTCHA:
- “Sure, hidemail.at will always be available”
Well, thу correct answer is that KeyCAPTCHA developers are or were never using this service to protect their own Email addresses.
When I asked “Why?”, the answer was:
- “Because address would not available if our servers are down or DDOSed”
Note that a service can be up but unreachable from certain destinations from/to which DDOS attacks come, kinda frequent situation in modern internet
I did feel me awkward by this answer because I advised this service not used by its own provider KeyCAPTCHA.com to my friends as well as I could not understand why I was misinformed about this before.
Business is business. In order to be deceptive one does not need to lie directly, just to omit some details.
At least, I could have full correct answer long before I made a clown from me before my acquaintances and friends.
