A Letter of Complaint
Oct. 23, 2011
Dear Mr./Mrs. K. Biz,
There was a question in a quiz you produced last week (pictured here) that was both semantically and factually troublesome.
It was, clearly and without ambiguity, the logo for the popular 'Blackberry' line of products. Being familiar with this format of question, one confident team member immediately began to write this obvious answer down.
Before anything was actually put to paper, however, it was noticed that the question explicitly asks for the name of a company, and it was therefore decided that answering with the name of a line of products would be a ridiculous, foolhardy and ultimately point-haemorrhaging exercise. After a lengthy internal debate over how to interpret the words 'the' and 'of' in this context, it was decided that 'Research in Motion', being the name of the company that produces said products, would be the most correct answer.
Thus secure in our smug superiority, we continued with the quiz.
I shouldn't need to tell you how distressed SPACEGODZILLA were when we heard our quizmaster announce that the official answer provided was, in fact, 'Blackberry'. Needless to say, complaints were made, but we were advised to forward them to your company.
This is what I am now doing, and I would very much like to know what measures you are taking to prevent such oversights in future, and what you are going to do to redeem yourselves in the eyes of myself and my fellow SPACEGODZILLA members.
