Snail mail clickbait?


We give to a number of charities.  It’s enough of a burden to keep up with the legitimate causes which are all too often willing to dun you for more donations one week after you’ve given them money.  Not to mention the causes that have a magazine that will happily send you three concurrent copies rather than the three consecutive years that you intended.  

Then there’s the “survey” letters where they pretend to be soliciting your opinions.  Ha!  They are trying to echo-chamber your opinions and asking you for money to affirm them.  Then there are the incredibly weighted questions that cousin to your ignorance and bias.  So many “questions” sound like:  “Now that we know that moon landings cause hurricanes, are you in favor to defunding NASA?”  Republican Representatives use these a lot while trying to justify their attacks on straw men democratic policies and the mean, greedy policies that they propose which actually hurt their constituents.   

Then there is the snail mail “clickbait.”  No return address?

When the mail comes, if I see an envelope that has no indication of who has sent it to me; it goes into the trash unopened.  If you wish to be (mysteriously?) anonymous; I respect your anonymity; I choose to not see you.  

You’ve wasted your mailing$.    I don’t think I’ll play.

  1. Did you hear there is a 12 word phrase you can communicate to your partner... that will induce deep feelings of love and impulsive attractiveness to you deep inside his chest?

    Because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that triggers a man's instinct to love, please and look after you with all his heart...

    =====> 12 Words Will Trigger A Man's Love Response

    This instinct is so hardwired into a man's mind that it will make him try better than ever before to take care of you.

    Matter of fact, fueling this all-powerful instinct is so essential to achieving the best possible relationship with your man that the moment you send your man one of these "Secret Signals"...

    ...You'll instantly find him open his heart and soul to you in such a way he haven't expressed before and he'll identify you as the only woman in the galaxy who has ever truly fascinated him.
