When I first mentioned Christine O’Donnell’s Zoominfo profile I said:
A ZoomInfo spokesman claims that the “user verified” tag means O’Donnell verified the information on the ZoomInfo profile herself. Color me skeptical: how in the world would he know? ZoomInfo and LinkedIn should be more transparent — for example, they could release the e-mail address used by the person who set up the account.
Reader Aaron Worthing convinced Zoominfo that he is famed rock musician Tom Petty
Aaron joins me in calling on Zoominfo to release the e-mail address of the person who set up the O’Donnell profile:
So Zoominfo, it’s time to step up. Disclose the email address used to verify this account. If not to us, at least to an appropriately skeptical reporter.
They can’t really claim privacy. O’Donnell can’t claim it because she says she didn’t set it up. Nobody else can because they would be imposters. Release the information.
Nice job by Aaron.
