    Dear Mr. Smith,

    Please accept our apologies we were not aware you felt so strongly about this subject. However,the fact that our web content monitoring software has picked up this blog makes us concerned that BT will be seen in a bad light. Please could you show us as a more caring and agreeable organisation. Have a happy bunny day.

    “Warren Buckley” writes to me as well. But is he real? Is he not more likely to be a made-up name so there can be a convenient “signature” on the junk mail? Some years ago I tried to contact someone who’d written to me from my bank, to be told that he didn’t exist.

    Yes, he is real! He’s on twitter, on which he spends all his time apologising to unhappy customers.

    Personally I’ll never buy anything from BT on principle, because they send so much junk mail, and because they are such outrageous corporate con merchants and hypocrites.

    All I can say is this is brilliant, And a vety good point about the recycling, If they stop sending us crap we didn’t want then we wouldn’t have such a problem maintaining a healthy globe lol

    What worries me is that the same company’s ‘web content monitoring software’ found your post within an hour of it being posted, without the company or human’s name in searchable text on it.

    If BT (or subcontractors) take it upon themselves to OCR every image and cartoon posted that might mention them, they could make much better use of the resources/money elsewhere, let alone the insidious monitoring of us all.
