Charities do a wonderful job, in the main.
I like to think that I do my little bit for various organisations, so my conscience is clear.
I do get a little pissed off when a reputable charity spams me.
Childline are a wonderful charity, and they do great work. I know a lot about them, because from the age of four, our K8 used to ring them several times a week for some reason.
On the other hand, I don’t know anything about Signal Communications or Pragmatica, and nor do I want to.
They were obviously engaged by Childline to do promotion.
I have three searing objections to this mail.
Firstly, they wrote to an address that I rarely use, though it is commonly used by spammers. I have never heard of them before, so this is an unsolicited mail [i.e. SPAM].
My second objection is that at the bottom of their mail they urge me to “Forward This Mail: To as many of your contacts as possible”. This is again promoting unwanted mail.
My final, but no means least objection is that I have received more than one of these mails to the same email address from the same company.
My message to Signal Communications and Pragmatica: Fuck off, and stop spamming. It is illegal.
My message to Childline: Please be very careful who you ask to do your promotions. [And by the way, you should grammar check you front page!]
