Ungh. I just got a membership renewal notice from the NDP. They never seem to be able to get this shit straight.
After a few battles on membership status already, I resigned myself to rejoining once a year, in January. That seemed to work -- until now, getting this renewal notice.
Given that it's all linked through my email address, is it that hard to search through your database of addresses, and see which ones are current members, and which ones not, and compare the two? Not send notices to list B if they also appear on list A?
NDP, I love ya, but your complete inability to manage even a simple membership list (or provide a 'renew' button on your website), doesn't speak well to your ability to govern the country.
In a side note, I've been getting a shitload of emails from them wanting donations. All some deadline or other, which, frankly, all seem a little illusory. '30 days until a possible election call -- give before the deadline!' Possible election call? I'll give when there's an actual election call. And I'm still waiting for my election sign the last time around, for any of my three requests. (Plus, the provincial branch is still in the dog house after that shitty, shitty campaign the last time. As long as they're clinging to that crap strategy and narrative, the bar is closed.)
As for the phone solicitation, that's finally over. My new phone blocks up to sixty numbers, and the party's toll free number was one of the first to be blocked. They were calling me up to five times a day, and there is no need for that. They were abusing the privilege, so I took it away.
If I knew how to shuffle off their emails to an unseen folder, I would do that, too. For now, if you send me tons and tons of emails, I just ignore them all.
If they actually took the money spent on trying to get me to donate, and used it for something else, there would be no need for my donation in the first place. I'm paying to get myself spammed, essentially.
Politically? Love ya. Managerially? Get your shit together.
