Everyone forgets to BCC once in a while

If you are looking for new pen pals, the Taliban mailing list is out. A Taliban spokesperson mistakenly sent a press release which revealed the group’s mailing list, with more than 400 recipients.

However, the list is not exactly terrorist central by any stretch of the imagination. Most of the emails belong to journalists, activists and local government officials. And the Taliban are not exactly known as agreeable people, so we are guessing many of them aren’t too keen to ask them to be removed from the list.
