Do you think that it would be of any use to get a petition
going with regard to Telecom Eireann? I am quite willing to
run such a thing, as long as it's electronic : I'm just wondering
about the best ways to disseminate the information and get
responses to the petition so that I can collate all of them
together and present them to Telecom Eireann.
My current idea is to use my email account (vcunniff at domain tinet.ie :-)
to collect responses, then collate all of them into a printed
document and present them to Telecom, preferably with some
press coverage. I'm sure Computimes and others would be
interested in providing details to their readers, and it would
serve as an additional warning to Telecom Eireann that this
sentiment is not to be taken lightly.
The main problem is how to get the message to a large
number of people. Almost everyone who will be interested
in replying to the petition is likely to have an email address
anyway, but I will need some way of contacting them all.
Some sort of chain letter is going to be required, with enough
initial seedings to make sure that it gets far enough.
So, how do you reach a specific group of people online
without pissing everyone else off with spam?
Marketing heads, step forward :-)
