National Gallery Whoopsie
Today I received the following e-mail from London's National Gallery:

The competition was for free tickets to the Rebels & Martyrs exhibition, which finished yesterday. Hence the deletion of entries. Wouldn't it have been better to organize automated "Thank you" receipts for competition entries, rather than bin all the losers and send out deleted-without being-read notices? Cynics might ask "Was there a competition?".
