Interesting. especially with last night's events:

However I'm curious as to who looked dumber? Branson or the IMRG?

IMRG post a (humourous? were those serious questions?) questionnaire,
get 50 responses, and then 'At 11am the IMRG's chief executive James
Roper e-mailed Mr Branson to alert him to the response and "offer to
work with Virgin to realise your stated mission." '

So you tell the guy that 50 of your mates said he was a twat, and then
pitch at him? Weirdest sales tactic I've seen in a long while.

And probably went straight in the bin with all the other crackpot mail
that the richardbransonatvirgin [dot] com or it's variants get.

The behaviour of that particular employee was pretty silly, but it
wasn't like you were acting professionally in the first place.
