The Open Rights Group, the UK’s equivalent of the EFF, is a great thing. However, and I hope I won’t upset Becky too much by saying this, their organisation leaves much to be desired.
I wanted to make sure I was supporting them. So on 21st May 2007, I sent this email to supporters@:
Have I ever and/or am I currently supporting ORG financially? If so, in what way?
No response. A month later, on the 20th June, I tried again:
Don’t you want my money? :-) If you tell me I’m not currently supporting ORG, I intend to.
Still nothing. At LUGRadio Live, I found Becky Hogge (who runs it) and she said she’d get it sorted, and I should email again. So, on the 27th of July:
Despite having buttonholed Becky Hogge about it at LUGRadio Live, I still haven’t heard definitively whether or not I’m an ORG supporter.
I still want to give you guys money if I’m not already! Please help me! :-)
As of today, still no response :-( I’ve had this problem before. I’m very happy to support them once, but I don’t want to do so twice. What do I have to do to get them to talk to me?
[Update 2007-11-03: Just noticed that my amusing punning title, “DisORGanised”, doesn’t work using my blog’s default stylesheet in Firefox, which respects the text-transform: upper-case I use for titles. So it just looks like a bald insult. Sorry about that, ORG :-) ]
