For me it was the tone;
which had the feeling of a non profit agency.
This time of year and in these economic times
these types of letters usually come from
food pantries and homeless shelters.

Maybe it was just my mood.

However, I haven't received any similar notes
from Canon, Apple, Epson or any other
hardware vendor.

Fond regards,
