In all honesty, I believe that telling FICA that fur is cruel is rather like telling Benedict XVI that Catholicism is a whole load of dogmatic tripe.

Thank you for your recent e-mail. We appreciate you taking the time to

contact us. We don't like e-mails. You worked your butt off for nothing.



We have received your recent communication regarding the sale of fur in

our stores, and want to thank you for taking time to share your views

with us on this very sensitive and emotional topic. We want you to shut up and buy our product.



We respect your views, and those of the many others who decline to buy

fur products or to shop in stores that sell them. Clearly, such

decisions made by individual consumers function as an effective

barometer for determining what will and will not be offered for sale in

a free and open marketplace.We disrespect your views, and the views of thousands of people. Blah blah blah I'll talk in oversized words.



As retailers, our role is that of a buying agent for the American

consumer. It is the consumer who ultimately will determine whether fur

will continue to be a viable product in the American retail

marketplace.

If no one wants to buy, retailers will not sell it. Right now, this is

not the case.We like it. This is out of your control, and who the heck cares about animals anyway?



Unfortunately, while many people share your opinions about fur, and buy

only faux furs, which we also sell, many others do not-and they too,

are

our customers. It is our belief that censorship of legitimate market

offerings by the retailers would subvert a role that properly is the

consumer's in a free market process.We love the fur-wearers more.



I hope you can appreciate our position on this subject, even though it

may differ from your own. Nonetheless, I appreciate having this

opportunity to respond, and thank you again for taking the time to

write

to us.Just leave us alone!!!!! We're better!!!!!!!



If you have any further questions or concerns, please e-mail us at

[email protected] or call us at: 1-866-593-2540. Our

office hours are Monday through Saturday 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM and Sunday

11:00 AM to 7:00 PM.If you want to see an e-mail from another robot...



Sincerely,



Peggy Fisher

Internet Customer Service

Bloomingdales.com Customer ServiceOur best robot.



That's what they were probably thinking.

Lol megveggie.

I accidently sent them 2 different fur related emails, and I got the same reply for both. It's annoying how they say "this sensitive and emotional subject." what the heck do they know anyway?
