Electronic Christmas cards: the curse of our modern age.

Hello.I am receiving a large number of corporate Christmas cards via email - mostly from PR organisations, but by no means exclusively so.

Hello.

I am receiving a large number of corporate Christmas cards via email - mostly from PR organisations, but by no means exclusively so.

This wave of turkey-flavoured spam is wrong and must stop.

I do not want embedded graphics, flash attachments, links to bouncy Web animations, links to videos, links to zany sites, or anything with snowflakes, reindeers, bells, trees, presents or - worst of all, and you know who you are - dolly birds in Santa outfits. And that's just the small sample I've opened by mistake or misguided curiosity: most will die unopened in the War on Fullness that I constantly fight with my Exchange inbox. You're not helping, people.

Real cards, signed by real people, are nice. I like them, even if I'm constitutionally unable to send any out myself. Individual electronic Christmas greetings from friends are also nice. Thank you for those

But bulk-emailed corporate jollity? Bah-humbug.com.
