Another dangerous item from MagPi

Your tweet of a Pi with a relay board with exposed mains connections is really irresponsible. Do you not have anyone on your editorial staff that has a clue about Health and (Electrical) Safety ? :(

Hi Peter,

not something we can deal with in my bit of Trading, but I have to agree this is not safe. Will forward your concerns, as not sure how often this area is checked by MagPi staff.
