In the UK their telecoms regulator has a consumer panel. One that oftentimes smacks down the regulator. They are not hacks that the regulator handpicks to sit on their holes watching the regulator present them with lies and nod like a dog for half a day, get a free lunch, collect €1500 and come back again in 4 months and repeat. Unlike Ireland. This is their annual report.

Black Affair – It’s Real get it right

So my Blacklisting post got a lot of attention, here’s an example of getting it right when approaching bloggers or anyone really:

Hi Damien,

We viewed a link from for Cava Restaurant to – and just want to say ‘thanks’ for the link – your site is very informative.

Again – many thanks.

Warmest regards,


Imagine if every company thanked someone for a link, just like bloggers do when someone links to them. It says a company is listening, they’re thankful for the link and they don’t try and sell you anything in addition either.
