Dear Sirs and Madams:
The purport of this e-letter is to call for the discontinuance of Purple, Inc.’s sponsorship for DeafRead & DVTV (DRDV, henceforth).
It is beyond readers’ comprehension as to why Purple continually sponsors DRDV whose owner and his editors have allowed some vloggers and bloggers’ unimaginably slanderous, character-assassinating, and name-calling posts about some deaf adults and their deaf children and abuse of the elderly to be published on DRDV. I regard the owner and his editors quite irresponsible in some aspects.
One of the aspects has it that DRVR unthinkably allows Google to collect some DR blogs and expose them to the world.) Highly-principled editors of respectable national newspapers and news magazines DO NOT publish anything libelous because they strictly maintain high standards. For the last two years, DRDV has steadily lost many well-respected bloggers and vloggers. DRDV has failed to discern the essence of democracy and the U.S. Constitution about whose respective concepts I believe they do not fully grasp. Therefore, some DRDV readers, some of whom are your customers, are at a loss as to why Purple has been sponsoring the unethically principled DRDV. To have Purple sponsor DRDV is like to ruin the business of Purple.
Thanking you for your kind consideration of this e-letter, I remain
