A staggering 88% of letters and emails (not spam) sent out that warrant a reply, don't get one.

These include job applications, fan letters, general letters of enquiries, requests for help, etc, etc.

When I was on the dole in the 1980s, I remember sending out something like 50 letters per day, at the job club's costs and never ever getting a reply. That's 250 letters per week, and I was there three weeks. A total of around 750 letters which did not get a reply.

I myself always reply to letters. :) The ones where the letter writer expects a reply, at least.

My question is, are you guilty ( :eek: ) of not replying? :D And which type of letters? And please, we know you all reply to your fan letters! :D :D. I do. :D

I do get fan letters honestly. Seriously. I'm an author. Mostly old women, though. :)

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

I never get any letters that warrant a reply that don't require a cheque sent with it... :(

Oh well, saves on pens.... :D

Best way of stopping junk mail and saving a few forests is to register with MPS- the Mail Preference Service - it is free and takes 3-4 weeks to kick in

I have also registered with TPS - Telephone Preference Service -and this cuts out the hard sell phone calls from Double Glazing Companies etc which usually come through at teatime or some other inappropriate moment...
