Hi. Couldn't find an email address for a human anywhere, so...

Just got an email saying the following among other things:

Thank you so much for being one of our first UK Stumblers. You've helped us grow our index, curate great content for the community and overall make Stumbling fantastic. Today, we're happy to let you know that StumbleUpon is officially launching in the UK!

Which was nice of you, but sadly my account, profile and well every other opportunity I've had to express it makes it clear that I live in Ireland - which has not been part of the UK since 1921. Is StumbleUpon Ireland likely to launch soon? - I doubt it's a particularly high priority.

Do me a favour and sort that out in future please?

Thanks

Sorry about that! We targeted our email by IP address, and it seems that some Irish Stumblers' IP addresses are located in the UK. We certainly meant no offense to you or your country.

"Thank you so much for being one of our first UK Stumblers."

"...recommending content for you and our other UK members"

What an effective way to alienate all your Irish customers!

I got an email thanking me for being one of the first UK stumblers. I am from the Republic of Ireland as it says on my profile, not the UK. This should be rectified.

I received an email today thanking me for being a Stumbler in the UK and informing me of the UK launch. I live in Ireland. When I logged in I was presented with a special UK page. I cannot see a way to inform Stumbleupon of this error or turn this off. This is very insensitive and downright ignorant to say the least... very unhappy with Stumbleupon this morning.

strange and kind of annoying that i'm getting an email from stumbleupon referring to me as a UK user - Ireland is not in the UK. Poor research guys . . .

I just received an email about stumbling in the UK. I said I was from the UK which I am not (I am Irish and have lived in Ireland all my life) and I am a bit offended about being called someone from the UK
