For years I have run the occasional “PR Wall of Shame” post when I get irked enough by something in a press release. It takes a lot to get me that irked. Something like sending me a press release in a PDF that is copy-protected. Or when their email has the disclaimer that the content may not be reproduced or reused. Or when they do send a .doc or ..docx file, they’ve embedded the press release in an invisible table that defeats cut-and-paste into the content management system. Or when the release is seven pages long and they don’t get to the point until the bottom of page six.
Now that Soundoff!! has been moved and I’m blogging again, be sure there will be more PR Wall of Shame blog posts.
