This is going to be the last episode in my series of rants about Royal Mail. It's about the company's inability to respond to questions and suggestions this time.
When you sign up to Royal Mail's opt-out scheme you will no longer receive election materials. However, you will still receive election materials. At least, that's what Royal Mail thinks…
Ever wondered why Royal Mail doesn't send households that register with it's junk mail opt-out scheme don't get confirmation letters and a reminder to re-register? Apparently, It's because sending letters is very expensive for a company like Royal Mail.
You no longer have to write to Royal Mail to get an opt-out form for the Door-to-Door Opt-Out – instead, you can now download the form. Weirdly, Royal Mail claims they're still verifying that opt-out requests are genuine.
There's a petition on Change.org asking Virgin Media to
demonstrate the highest level of integrity.
Virgin Media no longer wants you to opt-out by sending them e-mail. Instead, you now have to fill out a simple web form.
Hurray! You can deter junk mail deliverers with a junk mail handling fee notice! Boohoo… You won't be able to enforce the notice. (And so we still need to get the junk mail industry to formally recognise anti-junk mail signs).
The Institute of Fundraising has concluded that 'No Cold Calling' means 'No Cold Calling' … even if someone is knocking on doors to collect money for poor kittens in Battersea.
The Institute of Fundraising has written a letter to the Sunday Times. They're very sorry that charity marketeers have abused people's generosity and they're
absolutely committed to fundraising in a way that respects the rights of individuals. Whatever that may mean…
I'd like to know what you make of Royal Mail's Door-to-Door Opt-Out. Does it work for you? Have you complained, and was the issue resolved?
