Ah, nice to know you can criticise a government department, but, they may release your records...
Wait for the "She would have nothing to worry about if she has nothing to hide".
Again, I have no problem with a government department correcting false claims against them.
If that's all they're doing.
'Can't comment on individual cases', unless...
...you go to the papes and you're full of ■■■■.
After reading that I'm still no closer to having a problem with Centrelink's actions.
I think it's a disgrace that they did it.
I agree entirely. They're not protecting their business or image. They are supposed to be there to help.
It also depletes trust with user base
Yeah, unless it suits you. Arseholes.
I respect that you guys see it differently.
But HM, I feel like you're having it both ways with that comment.
Don't get me wrong, I've heard the horror stories too and they're appalling.
But either you think it's okay to discuss details or it's not.
It sounds like you're suggesting it's okay to discuss details (presumably without consent) so long as it turns out there's been no wrongdoing on the part of the complainant.
That's got me almost completely backwards.
People have come forward publicly in the media to complain about centrelink. they have demanded answers and centrelink has cited privacy to avoid discussing their cases. I can accept that, kinda. I don't know if any of the complainants have given permission for centrelink to discuss their cases publicly in the hopes of getting a straight answer, but it wouldn't surprise me, and if this did happen, centrelinks behaviour got a level more reprehensible.
Like I said, arseholes.
