Communicado reveal their broker

Communicado have replied once again, with the detaile of their list broker:

We have also suppressed the domain @jane.earlsoft.co.uk. The source for this address would seem to be Marketing Webs who supply business addresses and are DMA members.

Communicado *almost* admit breaking the law!

After a long delay, it appears my email has been escalated up to the owner!

Deanna,

We have suppressed the domain @earlsoft.co.uk, you should not be receiving more email to it. If you are receiving email to another domain please inform us of the domain or forward us a copy of the flyer received so that we can also suppress that domain….or use the unsubscribe link to remove an individual email address.

Formal business correspondence etiquette, who needs that?

Is it too much to ask, for people to use proper English and full punctuation?
We received an email today shown in its entirety:

enquiry on 2 axis items would like to set up a account if price is right cctv company
0785XXXXXXX contact

A "Hello", "please", and "thank you would be appreciated, or at the very least, ANY punctuation!

Communicado go incommunicado

After the previous emails asking Communicado Ltd to confirm what business relationship we had before they started spamming me, things have gone a bit quiet. Presumably they're doing the "if we ignore her, she'll go away" thing.

Communicado think the law doesn't apply to them

So, after my email to Communicado quoting the law at them, they seem to have missed it. They replied again a few days ago, and sent me a letter today restating that they won't pay damages and any court case will fail (we'll see in a few weeks).

Deanna,
The ICO have been quite clear on how to deal with these situations.

"Why does it keep stopping on its own?"

Taking a phone call today:
"I have two CCTV systems that keep stopping on their own"
I check the logs as the software explicitly logs why it stopped.
"Someone pressed the 'stop' button"
"Well, why doesn't it say that?"
"It does, there, where it says 'stopped monitoring'"
"Let me test... Well, why does this keep happening to two different machines in two different places?"
"Because two different people keep pressing 'Stop'!"
I resisted saying "two different idiots", but some people just can't see the obvious!

Communicado reply but wont pay damages

After my email yesterday to Communicado trying to claim damages, they have replied:

From: "Chris Comm" <chris@communicado.biz>
To: "'Deanna Earley'" <dee@earlsoft.co.uk>

Good Afternoon Deanna,
Thank you for your email.
I don't believe I've seen an email from you previously,
Certainly sometimes emails get held up somewhere.

Dear Communicado Ltd, Getting back at the spammers

After numerous spam to an email address I never send email from, so can only have been harvested or "guessed", I thought I'd try and get back at the spammers.

Here's the email I've just sent to the spam addresses and the company's domain contacts.
Tomorrow, it will be sent by registered post to confirm they've received it.
If there is no response after this, we'll be going to court.
Let's see how this pans out.

Opting in to uncensored internet

So, I will be optiing in to an uncensored internet. If I happen to get porn with that who cares, I'm an adult and it's legal.
I'm far more interested in free speech and not having some unknown government entity saying what I should and shouldn't be looking at. We're not in China. yet.

"I cannot accept this amendment"

So, yesterday saw the report stage of the Same Sex Marriage bil.

As the original bill had many issues for trans people, there were some amendments proposed to try and rectify these and make the bill a lot fairer in general, with an amazing speech from Julian Huppert.
