Who am I?

Hello - we thought you would be interested in our product.
Thank you, I am interested; can I review it?
Who are you and what titles do you write for?
Don't you know who I am? After all, you contacted me in the first place - presumably you had a reason for putting me on the list?

This certainly isn't a 'don't you know who I am' reaction, but it seems quite inefficient to me that a marketing organisation would take a list of unknown journalists, send them information and then respond by not knowing who they write for. Did they not qualify or research the list? Do they not think that knowing which journalists to talk to is a key part of their business? Is it hard to see who I write for by looking on www.marybranscombe.com? Am I expecting too much and asking too many questions?
