A few months ago, I wrote about how I'd been very annoyed by the Friends of Le Monde Diplomatique when they'd added me to a mailing list without my permission and then got quite rude when I asked them to explain their actions. My retaliation to this was to write an article about it on my web sit in the hope that it would get enough Google karma to be reasonably high in a search for the organisation.
It seems I was successful. My page is currently fourth in that list. This seems to have also come to the attention of "the Friends" as this evening I got an email from the same chap that I'd enjoyed corresponding with previously. The subject of the email is "Apology" and it does finally attempt to explain where they got my address from (or rather, it explains that they have no idea where it came from) and goes on to promise that in the future they will ask people before signing them up to their mailing lists.
It finishes by saying that if I "feel the childish need" to add this email to my web page then they will "take appropriate action".
I guess I need to update the article now.
