Just occasionally, an organisation does something so crass, you find yourself moved to activism.

It happened today. The letter to the left arrived in this morning’s post for my wife.

This is very well-faked. It looks and feels exactly like a hand-written letter.

Christmas stamp – slightly off-centre.

On 12 December, you assume it’s a Christmas card…obviously…

Oh no. No way. It’s a begging letter from Deafness Research UK – with whom I have no relationship whatsoever.

This is a CIA-level piece of marketing conspiracy.

This goes way beyond my standard irritation with DM bombardment – wasting our time and
disrespecting our MPS registration.

This REALLY invaded my household privacy, and attempted to subvert the giving emotions of Christmas in a totally hypocritical way.

Sack your DM agency NOW. The medium may not be the message. But the method is.

DM I will tolerate, if targeted…but not this deceitfulness.

No end justifies this means. You demean yourselves, your supporters and your beneficiaries.
