Mailing list hell

Another issue with newsletters is the mailing list (leaving aside that an email shot is probably better and certainly more environmentally friendly). Having spent much of my train journey to London reviewing one such list, I now understand what GIGO* means: duplications, wrong names, wrong salutations, wrong organisations, wrong addresses. . . to say nothing of the retired, the “no longer” clients and the dead. And all this in 2,300 names.

I called myself Wilks when I first started blogging. The idea was that it would afford a measure of anonymity. For much the same reason, there was no photo. Times change, hence the photo, but I decided that even when I changed the blog’s title at the start of 2009, I should remain Wilks.
