How V-sign gave the game away

I thought it was incredibly rich of you to draw attention to the flagrant abuse of “private and confidential” (Diary MW September 18), considering your company is guilty of this. Today, in the post, I received a mailer from the Key Club, with private and confidential stamped in red on the envelope.

I know this came from Marketing Week, or that you have sold my name on a list, because of the way my name has been spelt. My surname is Daboh, but Marketing Week is the only company to spell it Davboh. “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”
