I still haven't found a Daily Mail-proof irony meter

The Daily Mail has a story about companies selling our details left right and especially centre.  The Mail's investigation seems as lacking in journalistic integrity as the story is in journalistic standards, but we do know that lots of companies collect, store and sell lots of data about us.  This is bad. The DM tells us it is bad.

Then it tells us this:

When the Mail contacted some of the 15,000 on the database, they were horrified to hear their details had been sold and said they had never consented to the information being used in such a way.

Yeah... I  think I'll leave it there.
