As final word - a little ditty about spell checkers.

Eye have a spelling chequer,
It came with my Pea Sea.
It plane lee marques for my revue
Miss takes eye can knot sea.
I have run this poem threw it,
Eye am shore your plea's to no.
Its letter perfect in its weigh,
My chequer told me sew

Well pass the dunce’s cap – I hold my hands up. This Internet world is certainly not forgiving of any puffery, carelessness or neglect. And that’s how it should be.

I worked with Ottewell for years - he's a good guy and a true professional. I think the client may have been pushing for some puffery here...

Thanks for all the unput...I think we have successfully created an industry standard for announcing yourself to press contacts.

And people say TWL's useless...

If its sole purpose was to update contact books, then a simple 2 liner would have done the job. If he stuck to that he might have even had time to run a spell check...

Would an email saying something like "Hello, I'm the new press contact at Company X" not achieve the same thing, without appearing so utterly ridiculous?

Grumpy tech hack with nothing better to do. Ok, so the typo is not excusable, but unless I'm mistaken, I don't think there has been any loss of life here as a result..?

Absolutely - but would you really bill it as 'news' and write it up with the hard sell? A name, telephone number and email address is all that's required possibly teed up with a 'Hello, I'm writing to let you know I'm/we're now looking after PR for Company X, any questions just shout.' Don't fluff up your feathers and give it the big 'un, because you sound like an idiot.

sorry but thats a bloody silly comment.

If you want to update your contact details then send a quick email, with contact details and possibly a brief pitch (i.e. Clients include X and they can comment on Y). You certainly don't send a load of old guff about being 'an expert' or it being a 'press centre'.

I'd love to hear the sort of advice you give to your clients (assuming you are in the industry)
..."oh, yes, i think 'leading solution' is totally appropriate here and i'd recommend we set up a briefing with the FT regarding the latest firmware upgrade".

Words fail me..

I'd disagree on the usefulness of press contact releases. Sure, they'll get zero coverage but it's a handy way of updating contact books.
